Eye Disease

Turkey, in the treatment of eye diseases is one of the first destinations that come to mind.Approximately 30,000 health tourists come to Turkey for eye treatment per year.Our contracted hospitals designed, constructed and equipped with state of the art instruments, to serve solely as an eye surgery center. Its experienced medical staff performs thousands of eye surgeries annually.

+ Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic pattern. This can permanently damage vision in the affected eye(s) and lead to blindness if left untreated. It is normally associated with increased fluid pressure in the eye (aqueous humour). The term “ocular hypertension” is used for people with consistently raised intraocular pressure(IOP) without any associated optic nerve damage. Conversely, the term ‘normal tension’ or ‘low tension’ glaucoma is used for those with optic nerve damage and associated visual field loss, but normal or low IOP.Glaucoma has been called the “silent thief of sight” because the loss of vision often occurs gradually over a long period of time, and symptoms only occur when the disease is quite advanced. Once lost, vision cannot normally be recovered, so treatment is aimed at preventing further loss.

+ Amblyopia

Amblyopia means that vision in one eye does not develop fully during early childhood. Usually, amblyopia is a correctable problem if it is treated early. Late treatment can mean that the sight problem remains permanent. A squint is one of the most common causes of amblyopia. Treatment involves making the amblyopic (lazy) eye work harder to see. This is usually done by blocking the vision in the good eye with a patch or making the eyesight in the good eye blurry by using atropine eye drops.Amblyopia is a condition where the vision in an eye is poor because of lack of use of the eye in early childhood. In most cases, only one eye is affected, but it sometimes affects both eyes. Amblyopia is often called a lazy eye. In some cases of amblyopia caused by anisometropia (see below), the problem can sometimes be corrected by glasses. In most cases, however, glasses do not help.

+ Cataract and Refractive Surgery

A cataract is when the lens of an eye becomes cloudy and affects vision. Cataracts most commonly occur in older people and develop gradually. Cataracts can usually be treated with a routine day case operation where the cloudy lens is removed and is replaced with an artificial plastic lens. However, in developing countries where treatment is not available, cataracts are a major cause of blindness.When you look at an object, light from the object passes through the cornea, then the lens, and hits the retina at the back of the eye.Cataracts are cloudy (opaque) areas that develop in the lens of an eye. The lens should normally be clear. But, with cataracts, the affected lens becomes like frosted glass. Some people have the wrong idea about cataracts. For example, some people wrongly think that a cataract is like a skin that forms over the eye or lens. This is not true. A cataract is a gradual change in the structure of the lens in an eye, which makes it gradually more and more cloudy.

+ Eye Examinations

An ophthalmologist or optometrist will perform a comprehensive eye examination. It will include evaluations and tests that can reveal a medical condition threatening to eyesight or general health.Review of medical history: current symptoms, current general health, medication review (please bring all medications in their original containers to your appointment), allergies . Visual acuity testing: distance vision, near vision, refraction for glasses, dilation . External examination: this includes inspection of the cornea, eyelids and lashes, lacrimal system and evaluation of the pupils.Slit Lamp Examination: a microscopic examination of the eye (both inside and outside of the eye) that detects lid infections, inner eye infection or cataracts. Eye Muscle Examination: This exam includes an evaluation of the muscle of the eye, detects eyes that do not work together properly or are misaligned. Tonometry: a test to determine the pressure of the eye. Ophthalmoscopy: an examination of the internal areas of the eye. It can detect glaucoma, high blood pressure, brain tumors and others.

+ Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic Surgery, also known as Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive, Oculofacial or Eye Plastic Surgery, is a surgical subspecialty of Ophthalmology that deals with the medical and surgical management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, orbit (bony socket) and the adjacent face. An Oculoplastic Surgeon is an Ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional advanced training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and surrounding structures.

+ Retina Diseases

The retina is a thin layer of tissue on the inside back wall of your eye, containing millions of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that receive and organize visual information. Your retina sends this information to the brain through your optic nerve, enabling you to see. Retinal diseases can affect the area of the retina that serves your central vision (the macula and the fovea at the center of the macula). Many retinal diseases share common symptoms and treatments, but each has unique characteristics. The goal of retinal disease treatments is to stop or slow disease progression and preserve, improve or restore vision.

+ Strabismus

Strabismus or tropia are the medical terms for eye conditions commonly called by various names: eye turns, crossed eyes, cross-eyed, wall-eyes, wandering eyes, deviating eye, etc. Strabismus is not the same condition as “lazy eye” (amblyopia).A strabismus is defined as a condition in which the eyes deviate (turn) when looking at the object of regard. The object of regard would be the target that you, the patient, regards (aims eyes toward, looks at!). Eye doctors generally look for the presence of a strabismus when looking at distance (20 feet or more); at near (16 inches for an adult and 13 inches for a child); and the lateral and vertical directions (up, down, left, or right). When the eye turn occurs all of the time, it is called constant strabismus. When the eye turn occurs only some of the time, it is called intermittent strabismus. With intermittent strabismus, the eye turn might be observed only occasionally, such as during stressful situations or when the person is ill.

+ Lasik Eye Surgery

LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that corrects certain vision problems, reducing or eliminating the need for eyeglasses or corrective lenses. LASIK is short for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, the technical term for the surgical procedure. LASIK eye surgery is the most common type of refractive surgery. Refractive surgery changes the shape of your cornea — the dome-shaped transparent tissue at the front of your eye. The desired result of LASIK eye surgery is to bend (refract) light rays to focus more precisely on your retina rather than at some point beyond or short of your retina. The goal of LASIK eye surgery is to produce clearer, sharper vision.

+ Excimer Laser

20 years ago, researchers found out that excimer laser can create an ablation (destruction of the tissue by so to say vaporizing it) of 0,25 micron thickness. Thanks to improvements of the technique; excimer laser is now very consistent and reliable. For about 15 years refractive errors are being treated with excimer laser all over the world as well as in our country.Every single laser pulse embraces the ligaments between the corneal cells. The sensitivity of this procedure is up to 0,25 micron thickness. In excimer laser technology, the laser beam ablates (in desired thickness and width) the targeted tissue. Thus, refractivity of the eye changes as desired. This technique does not scratch the eye, therefore pressure alterations do not jeopardize the integrity of the eye. Since the laser only influences some specific areas of the cornea it does not harm the optic center.Operations were used to be performed using a technique called PRK; however today’s medical sciences prefer Lasik or Lasek depending on the condition of the eye.
