Laser Eye Correction Surgery in Turkey
Refractive and laser eye surgeries are any surgical procedures used to correct vision problems. Most laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, so that light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye. Other procedures involve replacing the eye’s natural lens.
Types of Laser Eye Surgery
- Stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis. This laser eye surgery can help people, who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism. Vision is corrected by reshaping corneal tissue in order for it to be able to properly focus light onto the retina. In order to access the tissue, a flap is made in the outer layer of cornea. Advanced computer imaging, called the "wavefront technology" can create an image of the cornea, which is used as a map for treatment.
- Stands for photorefractive keratectomy. These surgeries can correct mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. In this procedure, a pulsating ultraviolet laser is used to reshape the cornea. Unlike LASIK, here the laser is used only on the surface of the cornea.
- Short for laser epithelial keratomileusis, this is a variant of PRK. First, a flap is created and the epithelial cells are loosened using an alcohol solution. A laser is used to reshape the cornea. Finally, the flap is replaced and secured with a soft contact lens while it heals. LASEK surgery is used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
- This is the latest and most advanced treatment for presbyopia - the natural loss of near vision that impacts virtually everyone. First, a laser is used to create a pocket in the cornea. Then, the KAMRA inlay, which is a mini-ring with an opening in the center, is inserter into the cornea. It is much smaller than a contact lens and lighter than a grain of salt. The opening in the center of the inlay restores near and intermediate vision by focusing light coming into the eye. In addition, the inlay’s advanced design features 8,400 high precision, laser etched micro-openings along the surface to help your cornea stay healthy.
