Doctor Johanna Fusk Testimonial - Germany

>> Tuesday, April 17, 2018

The black doors slide open, I enter in a cool, clean room and I look into the friendly smiling face of a woman who is standing behind the reception desk. "Al Salam Alaikum," she says "and welcome to the Muscat Eye Laser Center. May I help You?"
These were the first impressions of my two weeks of internship in the MELC, in the sultanate of Oman on the Arabian peninsula.
I was looking forward to learn more about ophthalmology but I did not expect it to become so interesting. Every day I could join one of the doctors who are mainly from Colombia or the Philippines and have an outstanding education in eye medicine. They explained a lot to me although they thad to see a lot of patients every day. I especially appreciated their drawings to make some things more clear to me and sometimes the doctors also showed me videos or presentations about different techniques to do surgery. It was very helpful that I could practise to use the slit lamp and so I got the feeling how I have to turn on the lights and how I have to move the different devices.
Apart from that I was allowed to go to the surgery room and so I could learn more about laser treatments. The MELC provides their patients the highest technological standard in ophthalmology and together with the skills of the doctors, the patients can expect perfect results. In the field of refractive surgery, this center is one of the leading clinics in the arabic world and the doctors regulary take part at international conferences. Besides they also do scientific work and have a lot of publications.
But I also enjoyed to get an interesting insight in the omanese culture by observing the interaction between the patients, their relatives and the doctors.
Of course the whole staff also told me a lot about their experiences and they come from all over the world. So it is a multicultural team and I had the feelings that it also helps to create this special feeling of openess, respect and tolerance.

In conclusion I can say that my interest in ophthalmology increased during the two weeks of internship and I am very grateful towrads the doctors and the staff that they have provided me this unique chance!

Thank You, Schukran or Muchas Gracias!!!

The SCHWIND AMARIS 1050RS is the product of continuous development work and is the most powerful excimer laser in the AMARIS product family.

The innovative laser system delivers an unsurpassed repetition rate of 1050 Hz – currently the highest of all excimer lasers on the market – and consequently an extremely short ablation time of just 1.3 seconds per dioptre. That means even greater safety and comfort for the patient. 

The risk of the cornea drying out is minimised, and the length of time the patient has to fixate on the green light is reduced. It is a performance leap that brings maximum safety and enhanced patient comfort.

Active 7D eye tracking means that the SCHWIND AMARIS 1050RS combines space and time in an innovative technology without latency time. 

The ground-breaking ‘Latency-Free Tracking’ takes account of eye movements occurring during the period between acquisition of the eye-tracker image and triggering of the subsequent laser pulses – thus, the new target position is known in advance. The ablation process without any latency error offers the patient even more precision.
