  • Opthamology

Quality Ophthalmology

Multiple ophthalmic disorders can present in neonates. Such disorders can be isolated or be associated with other systemic anomalies, preventing optimal visual development.

The critical period of visual development is in the first 6 months after birth. Infants who meet screening criteria for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) should be screened to help prevent serious visual sequelae, including blindness, and neonatologists should identify ocular abnormalities.

We have had an Ortho -K treatment for my 10 yo girl and very happy with the results and approach by the team. Our doctor Chene was very gentle and knowledgeable, always could easily refer to some new research in her specialisation, answered all my concerns. You could not be in better hands)
Located on 19th floor (great view.. That s good for an eye clinic 😉) This place is one of the oldest eyes center in Dubai. Although it's been here for years, it is very modern, Very spacious, very well-equipped with latest technology. All eye exams can be done within their premises.Polite and caring staffDr are highly qualified and take time to clearly explain what they are doing and why. At the end, you ll get a very accurate picture of your eye condition. As the Dr will provide you his diagnosis, he ll highlight all available options and provide an enlighted forecast on your eye's condition evolutionA full session length is around 2 to 3 hours, so better plan it ahead and be on time 😁It includes optometric, various eye scans and thorough consultation with a specialized ophthalmologist.Furthermore, they are offering a very reasonable price. It only costed us 1k AED for all this high quality service.We can only highly recommend Gulf Eye Center.. They are really the best (as you will find when go ogling them) . You can really go there eyes closed 😉

Dr. Grim is excellent and I will highly recommend her.I consulted with her after my post op from another well known clinic, since it was not healing well and I had an allergy to the meds they prescribe me.She was exceptionally patient, understanding and gave me immediate comfort. She takes her time, answer all my questions and did a thorough investigation. I felt that she explained my options and treatment in a caring and kind way.I am very happy since I left there with some vision already being restored! I think she is a miracle worker.For anyone and also all the fellow South Africans, she is fantastic and I know are in safe hands with her.
