LASIK

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. This procedure permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. LASIK is an innovative, quick, technically mature surgical procedure with an uncomplicated healing process. It is relatively pain free and takes only a few minutes to perform. It is carried out with an extremely precise computer controlled excimer laser

Cataract extraction

The Ophthalmologists at the Gulf Eye Center, headed by Dr. Grim, offer a comprehensive range of ophthalmic services. These include cataract surgery, corneal transplants, LASIK & Laser Vision Correction procedures with state-of-the-art equipment and the highest quality of patient care.

Laser eye surgery

Laser eye surgery utilizes several types of lasers to treat conditions like diabetic and other retinal damage, glaucoma and opaque membranes. It is a relatively pain free procedure and it can be performed in a few minutes.

Eye care

An ophthalmologist is a medical eye specialist; medical doctors who have undergone further specialist training to diagnose and treat all eye diseases and dysfunctions. The Gulf Eye Center offers complete eye care, including any medical, surgical or optical treatment of the eye.

Diagnostic and therapeutic services

Eye lid repairs

Eye lid repair is performed to correct drooping upper lids or puffy bags below the eyes which can interfere with your vision, or make you look older and tired.
Phakic Intraocular lens implants

Phakic intraocular lens implants are used to treat a wide range of hyperopia and myopia. This straight forward procedure involves implanting an additional lens into the eye to treat large refractive errors.
Laser vision correction

An increased awareness about vision correction surgery has led more people to seek ways of independence of optical devices like glasses and contact lenses. Refractive surgery eliminates or reduces the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Vision restoration

Implantable contact lens (ICL) are indicated for patients unsuitable for LASIK with extreme myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness) or astigmatism.

INTACS

Intra corneal ring segments are semicircular pieces of rigid plastic/Perspex that are implanted within the cornea to treat mild forms or myopia with little or no astigmatism.

Speciality contact lenses

The Gulf Eye Center specializes in the fitting and management of contact lenses. In order to satisfy our patients€™ needs we have access to an extensive and very comprehensive contact lens inventory. This includes Toric, Keratoconus and coloured contact lenses.

Strabismus (squint) correction

Strabismus correction may include wearing a patch over the unaffected eye, wearing special eyeglasses, or performing eye muscle exercises. Surgery may be required to realign the eye muscles if the strengthening techniques are inadequate.
Near Vision CK

The Gulf Eye Center specializes in the fitting and management of contact lenses. In order to satisfy our patients needs we have access to an extensive and very comprehensive contact lens inventory. This includes Toric, Keratoconus and coloured contact lenses.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a degenerative non-inflammatory disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. Keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, with multiple images, streaking and sensitivity to light all often reported by the patient. In most cases, corrective lenses are effective enough to allow the patient to continue to drive.

Corneal Collagen Cross Linking

Corneal Cross linking use carefully controlled amounts of ultra-violet light, applied for a fixed amount of time to stiffen the cornea. It stops the sagging and partially reverses the sagging to improve the vision

Corneal transplant

Corneal transplants replace the clear covering of the eye (cornea) that is damaged and no longer transparent, with donor tissue.
Orthokeratology

Do you want to slow down the deteriorating vision in your child? Orthokeratology is a non-surgical procedure using specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision. These lenses are worn at night to temporarily correct nearsightedness, so that during waking hours glasses and contact lenses are not needed.

Ortho-K can be used to control myopia progression in children. Evidence suggests that near-sighted children undergoing several years of Ortho-K may end up with less myopia than adults.
