It also has a special department for paediatric ophthalmology. Over the years, the centre has become synonymous in Oman and the world with proven surgical results.

Speaking on the occasion of the 19th-anniversary celebrations, Sameer Al Awam, CEO, Muscat Eye Laser Center, said, "It is our earnest endeavour to make patients feel comfortable and confident that they will receive eye care of the highest quality. We are committed to providing our patients with a value-added experience and building a strong relationship with them that their needs are met professionally while being fully informed of the diagnosis so that they understand the nature of the treatment they need.”
