A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of your eye. It can be seen at any age. In many cases, cataracts are age-related, appearing first after turning 55, since cataract is not possible to treat with drugs, surgical (PHACOemulsification) operation or Laser (Femtosecond Laser) operation is required.
Blurred vision, hazy vision, the feeling of looking through a dirty glass, the need to use glasses, people with near-sightedness who cannot see without eyeglasses, sensitivity to light. In addition, some types of cataract can increase pressure in the eye and develop glaucoma.
Excimer Laser treatment for refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism has been recognized in the medical community as a reliable method with known rules and results.
Excimer Laser treatment is not a new treatment as most people think, millions of people have benefitted from this treatment and were relieved of the limitations of wearing glasses or contact lenses that they encountered in their social and professional life, it has been successfully applied since 1980.
Excimer Laser treatment can take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.
Thanks to the techniques we apply, it is aimed to provide the best optical quality of vision for the patients long-lasting after excimer laser treatment.
It is a laser technology method that treats myopia and astigmatism, it treats up to -10 in myopia and up to -5 in astigmatism without flap creation. It is a suitable treatment method for athletes and professional groups who are at risk of being exposed to impact and pressure.
i-LASIK; is a combination of laser technology Intralase bladeless laser, personalized treatment Wavefront, and eye recognition system. iLASIK is a completely customized treatment. It is performed according to the patient’s vision quality.
The first step in iLASIK procedure is to determine the characteristic features of your vision as a result of some tests including “Personalized Treatment Wavescan ™” technology. The Wavescan system creates a 3-dimensional map of your visual defects. Then, digital information taken from this map is used with personalized treatment (Advanced CustomVue ™).
Wavefront involves sending a light beam to the eye and applying a laser treatment tailored for a specific person, after evaluating the image obtained from the retinal layer. This method is specifically preferred in patients with night vision problems or with dilated pupils, in order to avoid scattering, diffraction and haloing around light after laser. After evaluation with special Wavefront analysing devices, the decision for surgery is made.
With the Wavefront technology, 5 different measurements can be done in a short time. 5 different measurements that are normally done with automatic refractometer, keratometer, topography, aberrometer and pupillometer can be done with a single device. Custom-made treatments are offered using the data acquired. With the iDesign Wavefront technology, detailed corneal analysis can be done and the refractive errors can be identified up to the minute details.
Our eyes are one of the most important sensory organs because of their visual function. Besides being able to look at the world clearly, the outer beauty of the eye is also important matter. When it comes to the beauty of the eye, it includes not only the inner part of the eye, but also the eyelids, surrounding areas, and the outer part of the eye. Especially with Injectable treatments done around the eyes, existing lines and wrinkles are greatly removed and reduced that cannot be seen.
Posterior Vitreous Detachment
The inner cavity of the eye is filled with a transparent gel-like fluid called the vitreous humor. Often as we get older, the vitreous fluid loses its gel consistency and shrinks. This shrinkage can cause the vitreous membrane to peel away from the retina. This condition called Posterior vitreous detachment.
Posterior vitreous detachment may also occur after an eye injury, high degree of myopia, genetically inherited diseases, and previous eye surgeries.
Posterior Vitreous Detachment: Symptoms
Posterior vitreous detachment is not the same as retinal detachment caused by a tear or detachment in your retina that requires treatment.
However, the risk of rupture and retinal detachment increases slightly during the formation of a posterior vitreous detachment, and especially in the first 12 months after it occurs. The patient will therefore have to proceed to a fundus examination to check that there is no such danger. If retinal detachment has happened, it may result in vision loss if it is not treated within a short time. Therefore, it is important to know the symptoms of retinal detachment.
