About Marion Eye Center
In the four decades since Marion Eye Centers & Optical first opened their doors in 1974, theyve grown into a multi-specialty ophthalmological practice providing comprehensive medical, surgical, and optical services to the communities of southern Illinois and southeast Missouri. Known for their commitment to keeping pace with cutting-edge technology, Marion Eye Centers & Optical provides their patients with the skilled expertise necessary to treat every eye disorder and disease.
Founder Dr. M. Ahmad realized early on that in order for Marion Eye Centers & Optical to offer patients the highest quality, most effective treatments for their vision, it was imperative to have the latest technology in-house. As such, MEC maintains on the premises the most advanced lasers and diagnostic equipment available, putting them ahead of even the nations largest metropolitan area practices:
Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, enables state-of-the-art optic nerve and retinal imaging. OCT is currently most often used to examine the macula in ARMD (age-related macular degeneration)
Many people dont understand that not all LASIK surgery is the same. The iLASIK procedure is the result of a decades worth of technical refinementit combines all of the latest iLASIK technology in one efficient blade-free LASIK procedure. iLasik has is has been approved for the astronauts and the military.
Most locations also have on-site YAG, Argon, Focal, SLT, PRP, and Diode lasers, plus diagnostic equipment including the GDX, Pachymeter, Topography, and Visual Fields to accurately diagnose a myriad of diseases and disorders of the eye.
