Muscat Eye Laser Center to host Professor Takayuki Akahoshi from Japan, the world’s leading cataract surgeon

>> Sunday, November 28, 2010


The convergence of top-notch international talent and the superior capabilities of Muscat Eye Laser Center is making possible the delivery of exceptional eye surgical care services here in the Sultanate. Muscat Eye Laser Center has signed up an exclusive partnership with world-renowned eye surgeon, Prof. Takayuki Akahoshi from Japan to provide people with an opportunity to avail world-class cataract surgery at Muscat Eye Laser Center. This is another step that reinforces the Center’s philosophy of offering exemplary solutions to eye problems.

Prof. Akahoshi has devoted much of his professional life to the refinement of cataract surgeries to make them safer and reliable for the patients. Presently, Prof. Akahoshi serves at the Mitsui Memorial Hospital in Tokyo as the Director of Ophthalmology. He is also credited with contributing to the invention of the pre-chopper cataract surgery instrument, a device that divides the nucleus through a tiny incision and greatly reduces phacoemulsification time and ultrasound energy. Following the introduction of this device in leading eye care institutions around the world, cataract surgeries have become far easier and safer. He has to his credit over 70,000 successful surgeries and has operated on several dignitaries including heads of state.

Prof. Akahoshi is also the recipient of many of the coveted recognitions in his field of work, including the Grand Prix Prize at ASCRS (American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery) and ESCRS (European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery) for the ground-breaking Knuckle Tip that increases safety and efficacy in cataract surgery.

For Muscat Eye Laser Center, the opportunity to host one of the world’s most celebrated eye surgeons is a singular privilege, says Mr. Sameer Al Awam, CEO of Muscat Eye Laser Center. “We are deeply honoured to be hosting someone as distinguished as Prof. Akahoshi. His visit, along with that of other renowned international specialists hosted by this Center from time to time, will also contribute to the development of this institution as a Center of learning and excellence in ophthalmology.

In what is considered to be a significant step towards the future of private eye care services in Oman, Prof. Akahoshi will make a three-day visit to Muscat Eye Laser Center from 28th to 30th December 2010 to offer his much sought after expertise in cataract surgeries. Given the limited duration of his visit, patients are urged to book their appointments at the earliest to avoid disappointment.

Jointly established by Sameer Al Awam, CEO and Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez, Medical Director in April 2002, Muscat Eye Laser Center is Oman’s leading eye care centre. Centrally located in Shatti Al Qurum, the clinic specialises in various ophthalmic procedures using advanced technology and techniques. The specialist team is led by Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez, an internationally recognised corneal transplant and refractive surgeon with over 20 years of experience in Latin America, the Caribbean, the Far East and the Middle East. At present Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez has completed over 50,000 successful surgeries.

Recently renovated, the centre maintains the highest international standards by enhancing its facilities, not only by creating new and modern consultation and fully sterilized treatment spaces, but also by acquiring the most advanced technology in diagnosis and surgical equipments. Muscat Eye Laser Center is the only eye care center in Oman with the ISO 9001:2000 certification.

AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology)
Academy's first Joint Meeting with the Middle East Africa Council of Ophthalmology (MEACO) in Chicago.
Dates: 16 – 19th October 2010 Venue: McCormick Place, Chicago, USA
The American Academy of Ophthalmology is the largest national membership association of Eye M.D.s. who are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for every individual they treat by helping each to see his or her best and by protecting their patients' vision and eye health throughout life. Academy members are committed to responding compassionately to their patients' individual needs and to advancing the highest standards of comprehensive eye care.
Dr Maria’s Presentation - Friday, Oct. 15 Subspecialty Day
Muscat Eye Laser Center who has always believed in giving world class solutions to any eye problems delivers it by keeping abreast with the latest technologies of the future. Muscat Eye Laser Center is privileged to be associated with Schwind Eye Tech Solutions who offer innovative and sophisticated technology that is par excellence; Muscat Eye Laser Center therefore is already in the future!

AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) is the platform to showcase the worlds best to the world, during which Dr Maria Clara Arbelaez, Medical Director of Muscat Eye Laser gave her presentation “Future of the Schwind System” to an audience of over 5000 renowned doctors and surgeons on the AAO Subspecialty Day.
In her presentation, Dr. Maria introduced the newest innovations from Schwind- the SmartTech nanosecond laser and the 750 Hz version of its Amaris excimer laser system. The 750 Hz laser combines speed, safety and also features six-dimensional, active and passive 1,050 Hz eye tracking. Besides its use in refractive surgery, the laser can be used also in therapeutic applications such as lamellar keratoplasty and treatment of presbyopia (correction to get rid of reading glasses) which is Presbymax.
The PresbyMAX module makes it possible to safely treat emmetropia, myopia and hyperopia, as well as astigmatism in patients whose accommodative response is limited (those patient who need reading glasses). In addition, she also presented the therapeutic application of the SCHWIND AMARIS with Pachymetry-Assisted Lamellar Keratoplasty (PALK) or partial corneal transplant.
Talking about the future, Dr Maria presented the Smart tech nanosecond laser which is based on nanosecond laser technology. This system, which is now under development, is much less complex than the femtosecond lasers. It uses a short wavelength of 355 nm and has pulse duration of 0.6ns and a 150 kHz repetition rate; the focal-spot size of the laser is one third of the spot size of standard femtosecond lasers. This low-density plasma feature combined with the short wavelength leads to more precise cuts and smoother cutting surfaces in LASIK flap procedures, as well as an increased safety in flap preparation. Besides its use in refractive surgery, the SmartTech Laser can also be applied in other therapeutic applications including lamellar keratoplasty as well as corneal rings and corneal inlays.

Muscat Eye Laser Center has joined hands with the Ministry of Education to offer special discounts and complimentary check-ups to teachers. In addition, Muscat Eye Laser Center has re-enforced its support to the Ministry for any new initiative that it undertakes.

The Ministry of Education lauded the initiative taken by Muscat Eye Laser Center. Hashim al-Moosawi, Head of Employee Benefits Section, Staff Care Department, said, “The Ministry of Education has always made efforts to provide the best healthcare to the public by forging a strong relation between the public and private sector. The offer by the Center to provide free check-up for the teachers and the administrative staff of the ministry is a step in this direction. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Muscat Eye Laser Center and the CEO Mr. Sameer for their co-operation and hope this paves the way for other private companies to take similar initiatives as well.”

“While we have taken steps to support the Ministry of Education in the past, this is a reiteration of our commitment to the youth and the teachers who groom and lay the foundations of their future,” said Sameer Al Awam, CEO of the Center.

MELC is also reaching out to the youth through one of Oman’s leading and popular online Arabic forums, Sablah. Special discounts are exclusively being offered to the 134,000 plus members who are constantly updated on the ongoing activities at the Center through emails and advertising online.

Free check-ups for Orphan kids during Ramadan

Muscat Eye Laser Center conducts free Ramadan eye check-up for orphan kids
22 August 2010, Muscat: In keeping with the Holy Month’s spirit of giving, Muscat Eye Laser Center, the Sultanate’s leading eye-care center, recently organised a free eye check-up for the children of Al Khoudh Orphanage in Muscat Governorate.
A total of 93 beautiful children of ages four and above had their eyes examined by the Center’s optometrist. Besides checking their eyes for any vision impairment or eye diseases, the team also made a careful assessment of each child’s need, if any, for visual aids to help remedy any vision deficiencies. Over the coming days, children from the Orphanage requiring further diagnostic and treatment services will be brought in batches to the Center’s modern clinic at Qurum.
After a comprehensive examination by the Center’s professional team of doctors, kids that need correction will be prescribed corrective spectacles, courtesy of Muscat Eye Laser Center. As surgical intervention can only take place from age 18 onwards, any non-surgical eye-care services will also be treated free-of-charge at the clinic for these children.


“There is nothing more precious than the gift of sight. With this in mind, and in keeping with the spirit of Ramadan, we wanted to reach out and make a difference in our own small way. We hope to instil in these children a greater appreciation of sense of sight and with it a brighter hope for the future,” commented Dr Maria Clara Arbelaez, an internationally recognised corneal transplant and refractive surgeon, who has successfully performed over 50,000 successful eye surgeries during a professional career spanning more than 20 years.
Jointly established by Sameer Al Awam and Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez in April 2002, Muscat Eye Laser Center specialises in refractive surgery using advanced technology and procedures. Centrally located in Qurum, the center has two fully equipped operating theatres, six consultation and meeting rooms, six diagnostic and four preparation rooms.

Ocean of knowledge #1

With so many of us using computers at work and school, computer eye strain has become a common complaint.
These problems can cause physical fatigue, decreased productivity and increased numbers of work errors.

Here are steps you can take to reduce computer eye strain and the other common symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS):

Use proper lighting.
Eye strain is often caused by excessively bright light either from outdoor sunlight coming in through a window or from harsh interior lighting. When you use a computer, your ambient lighting should be about half that found in most offices.

Eliminate exterior light by closing drapes, shades or blinds. Reduce interior lighting by using fewer light bulbs or fluorescent tubes, or use lower intensity bulbs and tubes. If possible, position your monitor so that windows are to the side of it, instead of in front or back.

Minimize glare.
Glare on walls and finished surfaces, as well as reflections on the computer screen can also cause computer eye strain. You may want to install an anti-glare screen on your monitor.
Again, cover the windows. When outside light cannot be reduced, consider using a computer hood.

Adjust the brightness and contrast of your computer screen.
Adjust the display settings on your computer so the brightness of the screen is about the same as your work environment.
As a test, try looking at the white background of this web page. If it looks like a light source, it's too bright. If it seems dull and gray, it may be too dark.

Also, adjust the screen settings to make sure the contrast between the screen background and the on-screen characters is high. And make sure that the text size and color are optimized for the most comfort — read the tips in the sidebar.
Black text on a white background is the best color combination for your eyes; other high-contrast, dark-on-light combinations are also good.

Blink more often.
Blinking is very important when working at a computer; it rewets your eyes to avoid dryness and irritation.
When working at a computer, people blink less frequently — about five times less than normally, according to studies.

Tears coating the eye evaporate more rapidly during long non-blinking phases and cause dry eyes. Also, the air in many environments is dry, which can increase the evaporation rate of your tears, placing you at greater risk for dry eye problems.

If you experience dry eye symptoms, ask your eye doctor about artificial tears for use during the day.

Try this exercise: Every 20 minutes, blink 10 times by closing your eyes as if falling asleep (very slowly). This will help rewet your eyes.

Exercise your eyes.
A component of computer eye strain is focusing fatigue. To reduce your risk of tiring your eyes by constantly focusing on your screen, look away from your computer every 20 minutes and gaze at a distant object outside or down the hallway. Looking far away relaxes the focusing muscles inside the eye to reduce fatigue.
To ease eye strain, make sure you use good lighting and sit at a proper distance from the computer screen.Another exercise is to look far away at an object for 10-15 seconds, then gaze at something up close for 10-15 seconds. Then look back at the distant object. Do this 10 times.

This exercise reduces the risk of your eyes' focusing ability to "lock up" (a condition called accommodative spasm) after prolonged computer work.
Both of these exercises will reduce your risk of computer eye strain. Remember also to blink frequently during the exercises to reduce your risk of computer-related dry eye.

Take frequent breaks.
To reduce your risk for computer vision syndrome and neck, back and shoulder pain, take frequent breaks during your computer work day.
During your computer breaks, stand up, move about and stretch your arms, legs, back, neck and shoulders.

Modify your workstation.
If you need to look back and forth between a printed page and your computer screen, this can cause eye strain. Place written pages on a copy stand adjacent to the monitor. Light the copy stand properly. You may want to use a desk lamp, but make sure it doesn't shine into your eyes or onto the computer screen.
Improper posture during computer work also contributes to computer vision syndrome. Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height.

Consider computer eyewear.
For the greatest comfort at your computer, you may benefit from having a customized eyeglasses prescription for your computer work. This is especially true if you normally wear contact lenses, which may become dry and uncomfortable during sustained computer work.

Computer glasses are also a good choice if you wear bifocals or progressive lenses, because these lenses are generally not optimal for the distance to your computer screen.

MELC truly becoming a center of excellence and learning.

>> Sunday, May 9, 2010

Muscat Eye Laser Center recently played host to two leading Iranian ophthalmologists, in the latest in a growing trend of visits by international eye surgeons to Oman’s pre-eminent eye care centre. Dr. Mir Mohammed Sadeghi, MD, Ophthalmologist and Dr. Soheil Adib Moghaddam, MD, Ophthalmologist and specialist in cataract and refractive surgery, spent a week in Muscat primarily to get acquainted with Muscat Eye Laser Center’s use of cutting-edge technology and surgical techniques.
Of particular interest to the visiting pair was the Center’s expertise in performing eye surgeries with the aid of a revolutionary laser called ‘Schwind Amaris’.
“We came here to observe at first-hand the surgical procedures employed by Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez, whom we regard as a pioneer in refractive surgery in the region. We also had the opportunity to watch Dr. Maria perform surgeries with the use of the ‘Schwind Amaris’, which has also been newly installed in our clinic back home in Tehran,” Dr Sadhegi remarked.
Accomplished ophthalmologists in their own right, Dr. Sadeghi and Dr. Moghaddam are attached to the Bina Eye Hospital, a new offshoot of Bina Hospital, a well-known healthcare research facility in Tehran.
“Now that we have familiarised ourselves with the technology of the ‘Schwind Amaris’ under Dr. Maria’s expert guidance, we are eager to put our own ‘Schwind Amaris’ to successful use once we get back home to Iran. We hope to perform our very surgical operation involving the use of this laser in about two weeks,” Dr Moghaddam added.
The visit by the Iranian team comes close on the heels of a similar visit to Muscat by a French-based ophthalmologist about a fortnight ago. During his weeklong stay, Dr. Patrick Humbert, a specialist in laser refractive surgery, observed Dr. Maria conducting complex Femto-LASIK and keratoconus surgeries at Muscat Eye Laser Center.

MELC always strives to satisfy our costumers and it is always very rewarding to hear of their experiences with us.
We received this testimonial from Mrs Riekert Williams and felt we would like to share it.

"I had Lasik done on my eye's yesterday. I cant believe that I walked in with -2.50 R and -2.75 L, walked out a couple of hours later with clear vision. It was not painful at all and I experienced no irritation. Muscat Eye and Laser Center even phoned me in the evening to see how I am doing. I received the best treatment ever, they are friendly, to the point, and very professional. I went for my follow up today, and removed my Laser glasses that I had to wear for 24 hours, and now my vision is even better. Thanks Dr Maria for sorting my eyes out, and for your good service and friendly staff." -Azelene Riekert Williams-

Praise from abroad

>> Sunday, April 4, 2010


20 March 2010, Muscat: Dr. Patrick Humbert, an Ophthalmologist specialised in laser refractive surgery was recently in Muscat for a week long visit. During his stay, the French surgeon visited Muscat Eye Laser Center and watched Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez perform two surgeries – Femto-LASIK and keratoconus.
Based in Metz, a city in the northeast of France, Dr. Humbert practices in Clinique Claude Bernard, a reputed private clinic. This has been Dr. Humbert’s first visit to Oman and he was all praise for the beautiful city and hospitality of the people. He has previously interacted with Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez in international forums and was impressed with the papers she had presented. Once in Oman, he was keen to visit the centre and made a request to observe her perform surgeries.
“Dr. Maria Clara has presented many interesting papers in a number of seminars/ forums. Her skill and reputation are internationally recognised. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the way the center is structured; the use of the latest technology is very impressive,” he said.
From a patient’s point of view, Dr. Humbert appreciates the way they are put at ease right from their first point of contact. “As soon as the patients enter, they are made to feel comfortable, a thorough examination is conducted by the experienced technicians and queries are clearly and precisely answered… A good center is a combination of the expertise of doctors, technology used and the personalised treatment of customers. This is one of the best eye care centers I have visited,” he added.
Jointly established by Sameer Al Awam and Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez in April 2002, Muscat Eye Laser Center is Oman’s leading eye care centre specialising in refractive surgery using advanced technology and procedures. Centrally located in Qurum, the center has 2 fully equipped operating theatres, 6 consultation and meeting rooms, 6 diagnostic and 4 preparation rooms.
