About Us

Welcome to
Finland Eye Center

Finland Eye Center is the first venture in Oman and the Middle East by a Finnish group of medical field experts who have already established several eye centers within Europe. The main branch in Qurum, Muscat was inaugurated in 2007 with additional branches in Sohar, Salalah and Al Khoudh following suit in 2010, 2011 and 2015 respectively. Due to increased demand, the FEC Muscat branch relocated to the current, larger premises in March 2012. FEC provides comprehensive ophthalmic care from the cornea to the retina from eye examinations to a full range of surgeries in our own state-of-the-art Operating Theater, making FEC the largest private eye care center in the Sultanate with nearly 40,000 patients to-date at the Muscat branch alone.

At FEC, patients can expect the highest care and expertise whether they visit for glasses or contacts, for a full check-up or for one of the sophisticated, modern procedures such as 9D Z LASIK, multifocal IOL implantation or Corneal Cross-Linking. Additionally, the range of ophthalmic specialties covered by the experienced doctors and surgeons at FEC ensures that every eye condition can be examined, diagnosed and managed to the highest standard.

Finland Eye Centre strives to provide world class quality eye care, always keeping patient safety and satisfaction as a priority. We aspire to reach and maintain the international standards and continuously assess our performance to improve the service towards our esteemed patients. We are proud to have been chosen the best private eye center in the Sultanate by the Ministry of Health in 2015!

After years of experience performing eye surgeries in various operation theaters we have launched our world-class state-of-the-art Operation Theatre on a day care basis, where the patient can comfortably go home the same day after surgery. We always look for the quality in providing services to our different linguistic and geographical groups. Our OT is designed to handle all kinds of cataract, cornea, conjunctiva, glaucoma, squint (also children) and retinal surgeries with the latest and most advanced equipment and highly experienced surgeons performing an array of ophthalmic surgeries.

Our OT is equipped with advanced anesthesia machine (OHMEDA) and cardiac monitors with central gas pipelines for oxygen and other gases. It is staffed by an experienced in-house anesthesiologist to provide appropriate anaesthesia. Infection and hygiene control is paramount and we apply world-class standards of theatre sterility by monitoring the sterility according to recommended parameters. The laminar flow air conditioning system keeps the theatre ventilated with purified, bacteria-free and particulate matter-free air by HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters with multiple air changes. To enhance sterility we disinfect the environment with high intensity UV-ray space sterilizer. Our operating table is specially manufactured to meet the needs of eye surgeries.

Our theatre is staffed by excellent nurses with vast experience in assisting all types of eye operations and familiar with the latest machines and surgical instruments. We have taken all measures to extend our care to post-operative recovery room area with vital signs monitors, crash trolley and central oxygen supply. In addition, we are equipped with an intensive care unit (ICU).
