COLD SPRING, N.Y., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- When Muscat Eye Laser Center (MELC), based in Oman on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, needed a medical website update, new content, videos and functionality, they found Aurora Information Technology (Aurora IT), a medical website design company based in Cold Spring, New York on the Internet. "Their old flash site was outdated and got very little traffic," explained Daniel Gilbert, CEO of Aurora IT, an agency that provides medical marketing, medical logos, Bitrix Content Management System, patient portal and custom software services to physicians and healthcare providers. "This new healthcare website is targeted, content-rich and better suited for their visitors."
World-renowned eye specialists, Muscat Eye Laser Center is the only specialized eye laser clinic in the Sultanate of Oman to earn the ISO9001:2008 quality management system certification. Coupled with superior expertise and world-renowned ophthalmologists, MELC offers cost-effective solutions for their patients' eye care needs. MELC provides the latest in technology by constantly upgrading their equipment with superior surgical and diagnostic tools with high safety standards, as seen on their Technology page.
MELC is centrally located in Qurum with two fully equipped operating rooms, six consultation and meeting rooms, six diagnostic and four preparation rooms. MELC recently decided to include specialist ophthalmological services for children. They are committed to nurturing their staff's talent and professional interests, and demonstrated this commitment recently by providing full advanced studies scholarships to three employees. MELC also hosted a major international eye laser surgery conference, the 12th International Schwind Users Meet, that attracted some of the world's leading experts of eye laser surgery techniques; in all, over 150 delegates from 45 countries.
Mr. Sameer Al Awam, with over 20 years of experience in design, construction and consulting, and his wife, Dr. Maria Clara Arbelaez, a leading Cornea and Refractive Surgery Consultant, jointly founded MELC. Dr. Arbelaez has performed over 50,000 successful ophthalmic surgeries. Dr. Arbelaez is currently the Medical Director of MELC, leading an esteemed staff of ophthalmic technicians and other support staff. She has offered many award-winning presentations and lectures on ophthalmic surgeries, some of which are featured on the Publications tab.
The redesigned website (www.muscateye.com) features fun ocean-themed graphic headers and a brand new violet logo, compliments of Aurora IT. A violet-colored flash scrolling news feed provides news on the practice. Information boxes offer background material on eye laser surgery, general eye surgery and general eye care. The Treatments tab contains videos of many of the different types of eye surgeries performed by Dr. Arbelaez herself. Their Testimonials page features a unique video presentation of the practice and Dr. Arbelaez. An online contact form and hyperlinks to the practice's Twitter and Facebook pages round out this highly interactive site.
"This new site gives Muscat Eye Laser Center a larger reach, even beyond the Sultanate of Oman, which will be of interest to our incoming travelers and business people," concluded Mr. Gilbert. "We are happy to be a part of this project by promoting to the world a state-of-the-art practice with its superior staff and medical expertise."
