Et bien je ne savais vraiment pas où je mettais les pieds. Au début , j’avais peur de faire un règlement à distance, en ayant fait que des échanges par wats app. Je suis parti en famille avec mon mari et mon fils de 5 ans. Je recommande fortement votre service. L’organisation et les informations sont en corrélation. Le seul point négatif est qu’il n’y est pas de pension complète. Peut être faut il en faire la demande?

I had to do a lot of research in order to find the right clinic because of my hair type which is afro hair but I am so happy with my choice and result. I was kept in contact from the beginning, the procedure was so painless as it was done with the local anesthetics. The team was very helpful. Now I have a good hairline, can't wait to get a decent shape up. Best decision I have ever made.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT EYE OPERATIONS

Laser eye surgeries or cataract surgeries are few of the most common vision correction procedures carried out around the world, and is sought after as a replacement of glasses and contact lenses. Depending on the age and the issues of the patients several methodologies can be used for the correction of the vision.

Laser eye operations may eliminate your need for glasses and lenses due to myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism, presbyopia (need of a reading glass). Regardless how they are called by marketeers (HD, femto, double tech, intra lasik, I lasik etc. ) basics of all laser eye operations are the same. A thin layer of the cornea (called a flap) is opened in different ways (with a blade, using alcohol or with laser beams) and then a laser beam is used to reshapes the cornea in a unique pre-specified pattern for each patient. In Ilasik operations this flap is opened with laser beams.

SMILE procedure is a newer technology to provide faster healing and better resistance to traumas. In the SMILE procedure, the surgeon uses a femtosecond laser to create a small, lens-shaped bit of tissue (lenticule) within the cornea. Then, with the same laser, a small arc-shaped incision is made in the surface of the cornea, and the surgeon extracts the lenticule through this incision and discards it. With the tiny lenticule removed, the shape of the cornea is altered, correcting nearsightedness. The corneal incision heals within a few days without stitches, and sharper vision occurs very quickly.

If your eyes are not suitable for laser operation due to your: cornea being very thin, diopter numbers are too high, age is over 45-50 intraocular lenses (IOL) may eliminate your need for glasses or lenses. Even reading glasses… Basics of all intraocular lenses operations are the same: A lens is made specific to your eye, the surgeon placed it in the eye from a 1.8mm-3mm without touching your eye lens. If you will combine this operation with a cataract operation, then first your current eye lens will be removed. Then a new lens will be placed inside of your eye to correct the vision. There are many lens options that can correct all your short, long and medium vision at once. Your surgeon will define which lenses to use or whether to do a laser operation with lens placement.

Which surgery should be used has to be discussed with your doctor after your diopter values and eye topography are identifed.

FAQ - EYE OPERATIONS

Get_Rid_of_Your_Glasses

Are there any risks or complications after the procedure?

Like all medical operations, laser eye operations have some level of risk.
Very rarely: Undergoing the surgery again due to over or under-correction. Need to wear contact lenses or glasses but at much lower levels than before.

Very unusually: corneal infection, problems with the cornea’s shape, making it impossible to wear contact lenses, decrease in contrast sensitivity, dry eyes, glare or haloes, light sensitivity, driving problems at night, reduced vision or permanent vision loss, scratchiness.

Do I need to wait few days before my other eye is operated?

No, the operation of both eyes will be done one after the other on the same day.

Do laser operations cause any pain or discomfort?

During the operation no. After the operation:

  • ILasik: A slight stinging and burning and lachrymation may be experienced for about 6 hours after the operation.
  • PRK: Patient may feel pain for 2 to 3 days after the operation as the eye surface is stripped.

In order to ensure patients to suffer less, contact lenses may be applied in the eyes as protection.

Do laser operations cause bleeding?

No. Since laser operations are performed on the cornea, which is a veinless tissue of the eye, no bleeding occurs.

How can I learn which laser operation method is suitable for me?

After Global Medical Care online consultation, your doctor will tell you whether you are suitable and if yes, to what kind of operations. You are free to decide which operation you want considering your budget and needs.

How do I keep from blinking during the surgery?

Your surgeon will gently prop your eyelids open for surgery. So you cannot blink even if you want.

How many times can a laser treatment be applied on each eye?

This depends on the thickness of your cornea. For a natural result, after the operation, our hospitals aim for 250 micron of cornea thickness. A cornea with an average thickness can be corrected a couple of times.

I have a specific health condition (like diabetes, hypertension etc.). Will this be a hindrance to this surgery?

Diabetes and hypertension, if controlled, may not pose any significant problems for these procedures. A detailed check-up will tell you more.

I heard about LASEK, HD Laser, Wavelight, Wavefront and a lot of different names. What is the difference between them?

All of these names are either different names created for marketing or old technologies where blades are being used to open a flap. Nowadays there are newer technologies that cost the same. As Global Medical Care, we promise to eliminate all marketing bullshit and bring you the newest technology, we do not recommend any other techniques.

Is everyone suitable for surgery?

Best candidates are:

  • Between 18-40
  • Stable eye numbers for at least 1 year.
  • Not pregnant, not breastfeeding
  • Free from other systemic diseases such as rheumatism, diabetes, allergy sufferers (in some cases we can define a specific procedure per individual bases.)
Is it possible to undergo a cataract operation for a person who had a laser operation previously?

Yes, this is possible. Laser operation maybe neither the cause nor a drawback for, any other eye treatment you may have in the future.

Is it true that Astigmatism can be corrected by Laser operation?

Yes. Laser operations can correct astigmatism.

Is it true that people who have undergone a laser operation suffer from eye-dryness?

Eye-dryness may be experienced for a certain period of time after any laser treatment. However, eye-dryness is controlled by the use of artificial tears. Eventually, the need for artificial tears will disappear gradually.

What do I need to do before my operation?

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon about what to do and what not to do before the operation. Here is general guidance that our surgeons share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and health history
  • If you are having surgery on only one eye, you can bring your contact lens or spectacle for the non-operative eye. If you bring your spectacle, you can remove the lens of the operative eye
  • On the day of your surgery you should not wear facial piercings, necklaces, makeup (especially around the eyes), facial lotions or cream, perfume, cologne or aftershave
What happens if my eye moves during the surgery?

It will not move, as our doctors will fix it after applying an anesthetic eye drop. As well our laser machines are equipped with an eye detection system, which will automatically adjust the procedure for small movements or stop the procedure if your body moves.

What I need to do after my operation?

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored to your situation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients is as follows:

  • There is no need for eye closure after the operation
  • You will be given a prescription for pain medication as well as antibiotics by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan that your doctor sets for you
  • It’s normal to feel a mild sense of stinging, burning, blurred vision and swelling on eyelids after operation
  • You should not drive after surgery
  • Please be sure that you are not staying in a dusty environment
  • You should not apply to make up at least 10 days after your laser eye treatment
  • You should not rub your eye, wash your face and take a bath in first 24 hours of the operation
  • You can swim 20 days after your laser eye surgery.
  • There is no restriction on using cosmetic contact lenses after your laser treatment. But you must notice that it would be better to use lenses three months after your treatment and under doctor supervision
  • You should start using your eye drops after the operation and you should continue this action intermittently until you go to bed
  • Drop your liquids into the upper eye by pulling your upper eyelids upwards
What I will experience after the operation? When I will go back to my normal daily activities?

After 24 hours,  you will open your eye to a glasses-free life (PRK: it may take 2-3 weeks). You may carry out your normal daily activities only 24 hours after your laser operation (i.e. traveling, jogging, cycling). It is recommended:

  • to use prescribed eye-drops given by the physician.
  • not take a bath during the first 24 hours after the laser operation.
  • to use sun-glasses to avoid from the sunbeams which may be disturbing in the first day.
  • not to swim either in a pool or sea for around 20 days in order to be protected from any potential infection.
  • to use your color contact lenses for cosmetic purposes one month after if you desire to do so.
  • to go to the regular control examinations after the laser operation.
What would be my daily schedule for my laser operations?

Although it may vary from patient to patient, here’s a typical daily schedule for eye laser operations:
First Day:

  • You arrive at the airport and your driver will wait for you by the exit of the customs zone with a sign which has your name on it.
  • He will drive you to the hospital and hand you to your patient representative who is fluent in your language.
  • After the initial registration procedure you will leave your luggage at your room and meet your doctor in person.
  • Your eye surgeon will explain to you the procedure in detail and examine you before he advises on the application that he is going to make on your eyes. You will have an opportunity to discuss your questions about laser eye operation and expectations from your surgery.
  • Then you will have your tests and checks to confirm your suitability for surgery.
  • Your procedure will be performed under local anesthesia.
  • Your doctor will do an initial check-up after the procedure.
  • And you will start resting in your room in the hospital.

Second Day:

  • Your doctor will perform a second check-up concerning the condition of your eyes. This will be your last check-up.
  • You will be advised on your medication and provided instructions on eye-drop routine.
  • You should avoid heavy activities but shopping or attending city tour might be a good option for you in order to visit different places in the city.
  • After your rest tonight in your hospital room you can travel whenever you want.

If you will have a PRK operation then your stay will be 4 days. You will be free on the second day after your doctor sees you and the third day, whereas you need to see your doctor again on the fourth day before you leave.

Will my eyes need to be closed?

No.

Will my post-operation diopter values be zero? Can they change over time?

98% of our customers no longer wear glasses after the operation, as their values are between +/- 0.5D. Otherwise, a second eye correction operation is offered, free of charge. It is very rare that patients still have to wear contact lenses or glasses after the operation, but with a much-reduced correction. As with all people, you may need to wear reading glasses from the age of 40.

IOL_Lenses

Are there side effects from IOL implantation?

No, but some implants require more specific after-surgery instruction. Your eye surgeon will discuss these details with you.
Generally speaking, you should expect at least a few of the following temporary side effects; irritation and discomfort, redness, blurred vision, rings or halo vision, light sensitivity.

How much time will I need to recover from IOL implantation?

Not much time. Most patients leave with no eye patch, no stitches, and very little sign of having had surgery. That day, you may have some blurry vision but it will improve each day.

Is IOL implantation painful?

No. Your eye surgeon will give you numbing medications before and during the surgery. Occasionally, patients may feel pressure during the actual lens implantation but it is typically mild, lasting only for a few seconds.

What I need to do after my operation?

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored to your situation. Please wait for these instructions to act, as yours may be different. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients are as follows:

  • There is no need for eye closure after the operation.
  • You will be given a prescription for pain medication by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan that your doctor sets for you.
  • It’s normal to feel a mild sense of stinging in your eye in the first week. If you notice any unpleasant situation as sore, bleeding and blurred vision please contact your doctor
  • You should avoid your eye contact of any soap or shampoo
  • You should not rub and pressurize your eye.
  • You should also ask your doctor about the risks and time period of sports like swimming, diving and all other water sports
  • You should avoid hard body activities. Do not lift heavy objects.
  • You should start using your eye drops until you sleep at night. You should drop your eye liquids in equal time intervals
  • You should wait a minimum 5 minutes for every different eye drop
  • You should use your eye drops into your lower eyelid by pulling it downwards
What I need to do before my operation?

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon on what to do and what not to do before the operation. Please wait for these instructions to act, as yours may be different. Here is general guidance that our surgeons generally share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and medical history
  • On the day of your surgery you should not wear facial piercings, necklaces, makeup (especially around the eyes), facial lotions or cream
What would be my daily schedule for IOL operations?

Will I have to wear thick glasses after the operation?

No, that won’t be necessary. In the past, when intraocular lenses were not yet developed, thick glasses had to be used. Nowadays, since we place a lens in the eye, the use of thick lenses is no longer necessary.

Will surgery hurt?

That would be unusual. Most patients are surprised when we tell them “Your surgery is over!” You are typically very relaxed from the sedation used and may even doze during the operation.

Will there be any bleeding during surgery?

Modern cataract surgery rarely causes any bleeding. Topical anesthesia removes the risk of bleeding behind the eye as well.
