The Eyes Hospital in Tripoli has received cutting-edge equipment for the laser department provided by the Ministry of Health.

The Hospital Director, Dr. Rania Al-Khauja, disclosed that the department had received new laser devices for different tasks including, treating retinal detachment caused by some diseases such as diabetes, scanning implanted eye lenses, and treating glaucoma and coloboma.

One of the devices is also equipped with special features for treating "eye floaters", which are spots in the vision that look like black or gray specks, according to Dr. Al-Khauja.

Dr. Al-Khauja considered the new advanced equipment a distinctive addition that would enhance the services of the hospital and the efficiency of eye operations conducted by its medical team, "which has developed significantly and remarkably in recent years," according to her statement.
