Refractive surgery, cataract surgery, glaucoma, corneal, uvea-retina, vitreoretinal surgery, strabismus, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastic, contact lens are made by doctors who are experienced in the most advanced examination and examination devices.

Otorefraktokeratometry, Airpuff and Applanation Tonometers (for eye pressure measurement), Biomicroscope, Direct and Indirect Ophthalmoscope are used for eye examinations. The most modern techniques and devices used by experienced surgeons are used in all surgeries of the eye. Cataract surgeries are performed with drop anesthesia in almost all patients by a seamless Phacoemulsification technique. All kinds of complicated vitreoretinal surgery including pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane peeling, photodynamic therapy in advanced age-related macular degeneration, and foveal translocation surgery are performed successfully. Corneal transplantations are performed using donor corneas from eye banks.

Glaucoma (eye tension), strabismus, and retinal detachment operations are performed using the most appropriate methods for the eye. Excimer laser applications for correction of myopia, astigmatism, and hypermetropia are performed with the Lasik method and drop anesthesia.

Excimer Laser
The idea that the eye number could be changed by changing the inclination of the cornea brought up Fyodorov's 'scratch' surgeries 25 years ago. The cornea in myopia was flattened by drawing in certain ways with diamond blades. Relative satisfaction with this method required more perfect pathways. Twenty years ago, investigators discovered that Excimer laser was able to achieve a thickness of 0.25 microns and consistently ablated. The advances made in this regard have made Excimer laser a very consistent, controlled, and reliable solution for correcting refractive errors. For the last 15 years, millions of people in the world and in our country have been treated with excimer laser refractive error. Each laser pulse solves the molecular bonds between corneal cells. This process is sensitive to a thickness of 0.25 microns. In an excimer laser, the laser beam eliminates the targeted tissue at the targeted thickness and width, so that the fracture of the eye is changed as desired. In this method, the pressure changes do not threaten the integrity of the eye because the eye is not scratched. Since the effect of the laser is only at a specific area of ​​the cornea, the laser does not damage the visual centers. Initially, the method called PRK was used, and now Lasik or Lasek method is applied according to the eye condition. Which method is appropriate to which eye is very important and can only be understood by detailed exam

eye operation

This method, which has been applied since 1994, is a form of Lasik Excimer Laser which is formed by a flap in the cornea. After the laser has been applied, the cover is reattached. Thanks to the Lasik method, the pain after the laser is very low. The next day, enough to see. Lasik has the ability to laser high numbers. No significant strain on the cornea. The return of the number after Lasik is rare. The stabilization of the number is completed within 1 month. At the end of 1 month, if there are still enough glasses to be needed, the existing cover can be removed and the laser can be reused. Lasik, +6,00 hyperopia inappropriate eyes -12,00 number myopia gives successful results. In refractive surgery, the aim is to reduce the number of the eye and, if possible, completely remove it. After the operation, the patient can see the glasses without glasses as much as they can see. Excimer laser treatment has received FDA approval in the US where health-related standards are strict rules, and so far, millions of eyes have been treated with Excimer laser. Lasik drops are made under anesthesia. The eyelids are opened with a separator and prevented from blinking the patient. After the center of the cornea is marked, the microkeratome which will create a lid in the cornea is placed in the eye. The light sensation disappears due to the pressure of the keratoma when preparing the lid. After removal of the keratoma, the valve is opened and the cornea bed is a laser. Laser operation often does not exceed 1 minute. Then the eye is washed thoroughly and the lid is placed in its place and it is provided to adhere to the eye. The process is terminated by dropping the antibiotic drop. Two days after surgery; Light burning, stinging, watering can. It is very important that the lid does not wrinkle after Lasik. Therefore, the first days more important for 1 month should not be rubbed eyes. If the wrinkle occurs, the valve can be replaced by the physician again.

Corneal is applied to patients who do not have enough thickness for Lasik. This method is also done under drop anesthesia. The patient does not feel pain during the laser. In this method, the front layer of the cornea is removed and then the laser is made. After the laser, the removed layer is replaced and the contact lens is put on it. The contact lens remains in place until the removed layer is repaired again (4-5 days). The first 1-2 days may be mild pain, stinging, burning, redness. The vision begins to improve the next day of surgery. Total recovery is slower and longer (usually 3-4 weeks) than the Lasik method.
