The first glasses were round lenses in a frame. It took almost five hundred years to put the lenses in the frame on the nose with the help of temples.
Since the late 80s, excimer laser vision correction has been rapidly spreading around the world, and is now successfully used in almost all leading ophthalmological centers. To date, millions of people suffering from myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism have already chosen the excimer laser correction method as the most effective and safe way to restore vision.
Modern ophthalmology does not stand still, every year the boundaries of the use of laser correction are expanding. New techniques are constantly emerging that allow you to select the most effective options for this procedure, optimally suited for each individual patient - and today laser correction is successfully performed for people even with very complex refractive errors.
Laser correction is a modern, popular, effective method aimed at improving and restoring vision functions. This is practically the only way to help minimize the wearing of glasses and lenses or completely stop using them. The essence of the procedure is the use of a laser. The laser beam is directed to the eye cornea, as a result of which it changes its shape (optical properties), and the retina has the opportunity to correctly focus the image, thus, the process of improving vision occurs.
Our medical consultants will take care of you during 1 year after the surgery.
If you need any assistance, if you have questions, you can contact our staff.
Laser treatment of the eye is minimally invasive. The healing process is kept to a minimum and the risk of infection is very low, as there is no scar with sutures to heal.
Within 24 hours, most patients regain clear vision after laser eye surgery, while others need two to five days to recover. Blurred vision and fluctuations in vision may occur after surgery.
During the first week, wear the goggles you got from your doctor while sleeping and do not let tap water get into your eyes. You should also avoid eye make-up during the first week. You should refrain from competitive sports for the first 2 weeks. Diving and swimming as well as visits to the sauna and solarium are possible again after 4 weeks.

In Turkey, salary and cost of living are lower than in Europe, in addition, the government supports the health sector. Therefore, an eye laser surgery in Turkey can be done without compromising on quality and standard, with lower costs at much cheaper prices.
With over 2 million medical tourists per year, Turkey is one of the five world leaders in health tourism. Experienced doctors, together with a professional team, take care of patients expertly and competently. With approximately 86 million population, Turkey ranks 17th in the world in terms of population. Doctors have a lot of practical experience compared to other countries, which makes them competent professionals. It is safe to have your treatment in Turkey.
You save money and costs, benefit from international quality and avoid long waiting times. In Turkey, you get the appointment for your breast augmentation at short notice, in Germany you have to wait weeks. The short flight time from Europe is another advantage.
Our contracted clinics offer the comfort of a 5-star, high-class hotel. The medical equipment meets international standards of the highest level. Across Turkey, 600 clinics have been awarded the coveted JCI certificate, which attests to safe and effective treatment methods, structured working methods and comfortable conditions. In comparison, fewer than 10 clinics in Germany hold this certificate.
The most widely used method of laser treatment in the world is LASIK treatment. PRK LASEK, ILASIK or SMILE techniques are also used to correct visual disorders with laser.
During laser eye correction, a precisely calculated amount of corneal tissue is removed. This changes the surface curvature of the cornea and corrects the eye's refractive error. The LASIK method spares the delicate surface of the cornea.
As a result of reshaping the cornea, which is the transparent layer of the eye, with the Laser beam programmed through the computer according to the degree of visual impairment, correct focusing and clear vision is achieved.
Femto-LASIK is an innovative eye laser method. It is particularly gentle because instead of a knife, the cornea is processed with a laser. This laser is called femtosecond laser and works computer-controlled. This means that the incisions can be made with high precision.
The iLASIK method combines femto- and wavefront LASIK. With the aid of fully automated eye diagnosis using the latest wavefront technology, highly precise laser eye results can always be guaranteed on the basis of the measurement data collected.
Before the treatment, the eye is anesthetized, so you will not feel any pain.
The duration of the laser eye treatment is approximately between 5 and 15 minutes per eye.
Immediately after the treatment, the eyes are slightly sensitive to light and should be protected. Wearing sunglasses is recommended for the first 24 hours after surgery.
Patients should be over 21 years old, as the eyes can still change up to this age, and corneal thickness must be sufficient.
During the treatment, a thin layer on the top of the cornea is cut. Then a laser is placed on the corneal surface, which opens it in a valve shape. In order to ensure that the cornea is still sufficiently stable even after surgery, the corneal thickness is so important.
Eye laser treatment corrects nearsightedness up to 10 degrees, astigmatism up to 6 degrees and farsightedness up to 6 degrees.
Pregnant women, patients who are breastfeeding, people with diabetes, rheumatic diseases, high eye pressure or cataracts are not suitable for laser eye surgery.
The complication rate for laser eye surgery is well below 1 %. Depending on the method chosen, various discomforts may occur, such as increased sensitivity to glare or reduced visual acuity in twilight and glare. Normally, however, the patient already has good vision the following day. Dry eyes are often a problem after eye laser surgery. However, this can be treated with the respective eye drops that you receive from your doctor.
During the laser procedure, the laser reshapes the shape of the cornea and the result is stable. However, in some people, despite successful vision correction, a partial return of diopters is possible. It depends on the individual
Yes, the procedure itself is very short and allows simultaneous correction of both eyes. In addition, simultaneous vision correction helps the neuroadaptation of the brain.
Anesthesia is given in the form of eye drops that will help your eye lose sensation. Sometimes a drug is taken orally to help you relax.
After the LASIK procedure, you will receive special glasses that you will take off the next day when you come for your first follow-up visit. After the LASEK procedure, the doctor will put you therapeutic contact lenses. You must wear them for 5-6 days.
No worries. You won't do anything so terrible if you blink or move. If you make a sudden movement of your head, the laser will simply stop working and start working again when the doctor returns you to the desired position.
No. In the entire history of the existence of the laser vision restoration method, not a single case of blindness from this procedure has been recorded.
Of course, you can get in regular contact with your doctor, who will be available to answer any questions you may have. Also, our team is always available for you.
