The ophthalmological centre is equipped with cutting–edge equipment, having a multi-disciplinary team of doctors who cover all ophthalmology subspecialties.

 
Some of the services provided by the centre include cataract surgery, retina and vitreous surgery, oculoplastic surgery, refractive surgery, glaucoma, paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, clinical optometry and ocular traumatology, to name a few.

Dr. Nasser Khalifa Al Budoor, Assistant Undersecretary of Ministry of Health and Prevention and Director of Dubai Medical District and Jose Maria Perez de Olacoechea, the International General Manager of Quironsalud Group.

 
Al Qutami said, “The new centre is a valuable addition to the health sector in Dubai and will support the authority in achieving Dubai’s health tourism goals of attracting more than 500,000 international health tourists to Dubai by 2020. Choosing Dubai to launch its first centre in the Middle East is a testimonial to Dubai’s international standing and reflects the opportunities offered by Dubai for this kind of investment. We see the private sector as a strategic partner in our developmental drive. We are constantly working on developing the healthcare sector keeping in mind patient safety, high quality health services and excellent patient experience.”
