Ophthalmology is a medical service that diagnoses, treats, and follow-ups eye conditions and diseases.
Ophthalmologists are doctors who specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of this organ. There are many diseases diagnosed and treated in our ophthalmology department.
Eye diseases center
Our eye diseases center has been established to make an accurate and definitive diagnosis and to apply effective treatment for eye diseases. In our center, today’s most advanced and safe technological methods are applied in the treatment of eye diseases and disorders.
Eye diseases we treat
Ophthalmologists are responsible for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of nearly all eye conditions and vision problems. Common eye diseases are;
Eye pressure (Glaucoma)
Treatment of eye diseases
Ophthalmologists perform a wide variety of medical and surgical procedures. Some of the most common daily procedures that an ophthalmologist will perform include diagnosing and monitoring mild eye and vision conditions. It is also common to prescribe glasses and contact lenses.
Treatment methods performed in the eye diseases department are;
Refractive surgery to improve vision
Reconstructive surgery to repair trauma or birth abnormalities, such as crossed eyes
Chronic or severe tear duct infections or blockages
Neoplasm (tumor, cyst, or foreign body) removal
Monitoring or counseling cases of other conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy or immune conditions
Injections around the eyes and face to change facial structure function and aesthetic
Repairing torn or detached retinas
Eye laboratories, eye angiography, and eye ultrasound are also important procedures performed in this department.
Cataract surgeries are performed in our hospital with a seamless, small incision technique, which is the most reliable method accepted in the world, and the insertion of a foldable intraocular lens into the lens capsule.
During the procedure, the patient is under regional anesthesia so our patients who are mostly elderly do not need to undergo anesthesia. The patient is discharged 1-2 hours after the operation and the bandage on the eye is removed in the next day’s control. After the operation, there are no restrictions such as not lifting heavy, bending down, or not being able to take a bath.
Retinal (the layer of the eye that provides vision) diseases can be due to different causes. Vascular disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, changes such as yellow spot disease, retinal tears, retinal detachment can cause serious vision loss and eye loss.
In our center, especially diabetic retinopathy, all other retinal vascular diseases (vascular occlusions, vasculopathy), hypertensive retinopathy, retinal diseases that may accompany hematological diseases, and other internal diseases, are diagnosed by examinations such as visual field and eye angiography. Besides, laser applications used in its treatment are successfully applied with the most advanced devices and modern methods.
Glaucoma (eye pressure) is an eye disease that can lead to blindness if left untreated. In our hospital, intraocular pressure and computerized visual field tests are performed for glaucoma patients, and both diagnosis and follow-up of the disease can be successfully performed.
FFA (Fundus Fluorescein Angiography) and argon laser applications are also successfully applied with the most advanced computerized devices.
With eye ultrasonography, many eye diseases can be diagnosed and the ideal number of the lens to be attached to the eyes of patients who will undergo cataract surgery can be determined.
Interventions for congenital or acquired obstructions of the tear ducts, plastic surgery procedures for droopy eyelids or tumors, and surgical treatment of strabismus of all ages are carried out in our hospital.
In our center, follow-up and treatment (surgical and/or medical) procedures for other subunits of eye diseases such as oculoplastic, cosmetic valve surgeries, pediatric ophthalmology, strabismus, and neuro-ophthalmology are also successfully performed.
In our ophthalmology center, advanced computerized devices are used in all kinds of eye examinations, from determining visual acuity to determining eye number, to glasses trials. Fast and accurate determinations can be made automatically.
Routine eye exam
An eye exam helps to detect eye problems at the earliest stage. Regular eye exams will allow your doctor to notice vision changes or to help you adjust to them.
There can be several factors that determine how often you need an eye examination, including your age, health, and risk of developing eye problems. The most widely accepted eye exam frequency is divided by age.
Eye examination under the age of 3
For children under the age of 3, your pediatrician will likely look for the most common eye problems and these are; lazy eyes, misaligned eyes, or misaligned eyes. If there are eye concerns or symptoms, it is appropriate to have an examination at that time, regardless of age. Your child can have a more comprehensive eye examination between the ages of 3 and 5.
Eye examination for school-age children and adolescents
Before starting first grade, you should have your child’s vision checked. If your child has no symptoms of vision problems and no family history of vision problems, an eye examination every two years is appropriate. Otherwise, you should schedule eye exams based on your ophthalmologist’s advice.
