Turkey is the World’s favorite in eye treatment
The most important organ that directly determines the relationship of the individual with the environment and the world is undoubtedly the eyes.
Eye diseases, which can negatively affect a person’s whole life, can often be eliminated thanks to developing technology and medical knowledge.
It is known that about 10-15 percent of people in the world have some eye problems. While eye defects such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism constitute an important part of these problems, there are diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts that can lead to partial or complete loss of vision.
Ophthalmology treatments, which have a very old history, are today performed by ophthalmologists / ophthalmologists, who are physicians who study eye-related medical conditions and specialize in medical and surgical treatment.
There are doctors who specialize in everything related to the eye, from mild eye/vision defects to severe eye injuries and advanced eye diseases.
WHAT ARE THE EYE TREATMENTS WIDELY APPLIED?
Ophthalmologists today diagnose and monitor moderate to severe eye conditions; cataract surgery; glaucoma surgery; refractive surgery to restore vision; eye cancer treatment; reconstructive surgery to repair trauma or birth abnormalities such as strabismus; chronic or severe tear duct infections or blockages; removal of foreign substances (tumors, cysts or other bodies) from the neoplasm; monitoring or counseling of cases related to other conditions such as diabetic retinopathy or immune conditions; injections around the eyes and face to alter facial structure function and appearance; performs operations such as repairing torn or severed retinas and corneal transplantation.
In addition, aesthetic interventions such as lifting the eyelid and removing eye bags are performed by ophthalmologists.
EYE TREATMENT IN TURKEY; ADVANTAGES AND COSTS
In terms of health tourism, it was determined that one out of seven patients who preferred Turkey came to our country for the treatment of eye diseases. Turkey, which is generally the country that is preferred in health tourism, stands out in terms of the use of advanced technology and equipment, as well as the presence of specialist physicians and technicians, with eye hospitals that are specialized in eye diseases and have international accreditation.
All treatments related to eye diseases are carried out at high standards in Turkey, and surgical interventions such as corneal transplantation, laser surgeries and cataract surgeries are also performed successfully. Eye hospitals and clinics, which have an important place in the investments made in the health sector, especially in the last 20 years, receive visitors from all over the world.
Turkey is also the reason for preference because it covers eye treatments, which are done for very high fees in many countries, at much more reasonable costs, reaching up to 60 percent. In addition, the solution of eye diseases in Turkey is provided in a much shorter time compared to countries with long waiting and long treatment periods.
Turkey stands out as a pioneer country in the world, especially in laser eye surgeries. Laser surgical interventions are applied in Turkey today with methods such as LASIK, ILASIK, LASEK, PRK, Transepithelial-PRK (NO TOUCH), WAVEFRONT and Femtosecond Laser-SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction).
WHAT IS EYE SURGERY WITH LASER, HOW IS IT APPLIED?
LASIK, which is the most advanced point of eye surgery with laser technology, which was first steps taken in the 1950s and developed in the 1990s, is the name given to the technique of removing the Epithelial and non-renewable Bowman layers, which are located at the outermost of the corneal tissue, with a device called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser layer by layer.
Laser eye surgeries, also known as “eye drawing” in the society, are successfully applied to mild and moderate visual impairments such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, and yield close to 100 percent results. Laser eye surgeries can be applied to anyone over the age of 18 after a doctor’s examination to determine whether the person is suitable for laser eye treatment.
Turkey ranks high in both Europe and the World in terms of both the number of cases and success rates in laser eye surgeries.
WHAT IS CATARACT SURGERY AND HOW IS IT APPLIED?
Cataract is the general name given to the development of cloudy parts in the lens of the eye. If left untreated, these patches often enlarge, causing hazy vision and curtains, and eventually blindness.
Cataract, which can be seen in both eyes, usually occurs with aging, but can also occur in infants and young children. Cataract, which hinders daily life activities in mild cases, has become a disease that can be easily prevented without progressing with modern technology.
The only definitive treatment for cataracts is surgery. Cataract surgery is the name given to the process of removing the lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. During the procedure, the operated area is anesthetized with an eye drop. Cataract surgery, which is usually performed as an outpatient, is a safe and risk-free procedure. It may take between two and six weeks for vision to return to its original state after cataract surgery.
