(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Staying on the cutting-edge of technology, Muscat Eye Laser Center (MELC), the eye surgical care services provider in the private sector, has acquired the latest technology from the world-renowned Schwind family of eye-tech solutions “ the Amaris 1050RS.
The new Schwind Amaris 1050RS, superlative in speed and precision, sets a new standard in refractive corneal surgery. At the heart of this new technological marvel lies a high-precision eye tracker that is capable of accurately aiming at the cornea as it follows every eye movement. Sensitive to the slightest movement of the eye, the six dimensional tracker can determine and compensate for horizontal and vertical linear and rolling movements as well as the rotating movement during the laser treatment.
Achieving a repetition rate of 1050 Hz, currently the highest of any excimer laser in the market, this innovative system dramatically reduces the treatment time, therefore reducing the risk of corneal dehydration and accelerating the regeneration process. In short, it provides unsurpassed precision in minimum time and is safer than ever before.
''Since the start of MELC 11 years ago, we have been looking for the latest and safest technology that will cause the least discomfort to our customers as their satisfaction is our primary concern. This is the fourth time we have updated the Schwind Amaris since our inception with the sole intention of offering the best in eye care technology available across the world,'' said Sameer al Awam, CEO, MELC. ''With the installation of this system at its facility, Al Sarooj Muscat, MELC is breaking new ground in the delivery of advanced eye surgical care services in the sultanate.
Its decision to take on this latest technology with the advanced Amaris 1050RS at the outset of its global launch underscores MELC's reputation as a trendsetter in the Oman market,'' said Alex Schroeck, a visiting Engineer from German-based Schwind Eye-Tech Solutions. He believes that MELC is miles ahead of other clinics not just for acquiring the latest equipment but ensuring that the clients are provided with nothing but the best right from the time they walk into the centre.
MELC's repetition rate of 1050 Hz is currently the highest of all excimer lasers on the market that, at best, can offer speeds of 500Hz. Schwind Amaris systems offer increased flexibility to treat short sightedness, long sightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia and combinations of these conditions
