Samaya Specialized Center is the result of a dream of one group of practicing physicians and surgeons who want to provide high standard and excellent quality of health care through centers specializing in different medical services. The first project in this regard is Samaya Specialized Center for eye care specialty and general dental services at Al Bateen Area, Abu Dhabi, UAE. In 2019, Samaya will open its second branch at Khalifa City A, Abu Dhabi, UAE. Our future aim is to start a similar highly specialized center for dermatology and ear, nose and throat (ENT) services.
Samaya Specialized Center for eye care is a state of the art center with modern eye care equipment capable of dealing with all types of eye care problems (cornea, cataract, glaucoma, retina, children’s care, squint, correction of refractive errors with glasses and surgery, etc.). Our center was the first in the Gulf region introducing the laser assisted cataract surgery (LensX Laser Machine) in 2012 and all types of refractive surgeries (PRK, Lasek, Epilasek Femto Lasik, Contoura PRK, and Contoura Lasik). We also offer the latest designs of multifocal implantable lenses as a part of cataract surgery which makes possible for our patients not to wear glasses for distance and reading. One of our physician (Dr. Ameen Saleh Ali Al-Saleem) is a leader in this field with vast experience in the Gulf region, implanted the highest number of different types of multifocal lenses. He was also the one who introduced among the first in the Emirates C3R procedure which is nowadays a well- known treatment opinion for keratoconus.
We also offer refractive surgical options for those who want to get rid of glasses but the eyes are not suitable for laser refractive surgery. We provide high quality implantable phakic intraocular lenses which provide better sharpness of vision as can be achieved by corneal laser refractive surgery.
Our eye consultants have UK, Canada/USA and European fellowship certifications and carry vast experiences in their fields. Dr. Yahya Al Midwahi was the first ophthalmologist in UAE who introduced a number of new ophthalmic treatment methods, instruments, and surgical technologies (LASIK, Keratoplasty, YAG laser, Retinal laser, etc.) being Medical Director and Head of Ophthalmology Department of Mafraq Hospital during many years. Under his leadership, many young ophthalmologists learned not only the art of ophthalmology but also the great respect and empathy for patients who are in need for help.
Our retina service offers treatment for vitroretinal diseases with laser treatment, different types of intravitreal injections and small gauge (sutureless) surgeries.
