Malta leads in the field of eye re­frac­tive surgery

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The Saint James Eye Clinic has been ap­pointed as an ap­proved Carl Zeiss Meditec train­ing fa­cil­ity. This ap­point­ment will en­able the Saint James Eye Clinic to pro­vide train­ing for oph­thalmic sur­geons world­wide in the field of re­frac­tive surgery.

Carl Zeiss Meditec is one of the lead­ing world’s sup­pli­ers of med­i­cal de­vices and it spe­cialises in the field of mi­cro­surgery and there­fore Oph­thal­mol­ogy is one of the main ar­eas of spe­cial­i­sa­tion in which it ex­cels.

It has a long-stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion in re­frac­tive laser surgery and cur­rently is the only sup­plier of the Visumax Fem­tosec­ond Laser which is li­censed to per­form SMILE sur

® gery, an in­no­va­tive laser re­frac­tive pro­ce­dure which leads to a very quick vis­ual re­cov­ery.

The Saint James Eye Clinic CEO Jean Claude Mus­cat ex­pressed his sat­is­fac­tion on hav­ing achieved this very pres­ti­gious mile­stone and un­der­lined that “this is a con­fir­ma­tion of the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of all the team in pro­vid­ing the high­est qual­ity of ser­vice, thus guar­an­tee­ing the best pos­si­ble out­comes for the pa­tients at all times”.

Mr Mus­cat also high­lighted the fact that for the very first time, Malta is now lead­ing in the field of re­frac­tive surgery, rather than fol­low­ing as was the case in the past, and this was largely as a re­sult of the sub­stan­tial in­vest­ment and ad­vanced train­ing pro­grams un­der­taken by the spe­cial­ist team in the new Saint James Eye Clinic.

The first com­pre­hen­sive train­ing pro­gram by the Saint James Eye Clinic ap­pointed SMILE® re­frac­tive laser train­ing cen­tre was led and de­liv­ered by renowned oph- thalmic sur­geon Franco Mer­cieca sup­ported by other mem­bers of the clin­i­cal team.

The Saint James Eye Cen­tre which is si­t­u­ated in Birkirkara ex­cels in the very lat­est re­frac­tive surgery treat­ments for those pa­tients wish­ing to do away with hav­ing to wear spec­ta­cles or con­tact lenses, and has gained a strong rep­u­ta­tion for ex­cel­lence in the qual­ity of care it pro­vides.
