Diagnosis: Cataract

I decided to put IOLs a long time ago, they were recommended to me by ophthalmologists in the district clinic. At the same time, my friends were talking about unsuccessful cases of operations, when patients could no longer or almost could not see. Therefore, I was afraid to make a decision and delayed the decision as much as I could. I started looking for information on the Internet, and found out that cataract surgeries have been performed abroad for a long time and are not something complicated. Therefore, it was decided to be treated abroad. A friend of a relative helped me choose a doctor, she is an ophthalmologist interested in foreign developments in this area, and she also knows foreign specialists. She advised to contact Professor Anat Loewenstein, a recognized world-class expert. I had a consultation with her 3 weeks later. After the examination, the professor gave recommendations on the operation, which was carried out at the Sourasky clinic. Everything went well. After an operation on my right eye, where there was a mature cataract, I began to see well, as if I had been born again. The operation on the second eye no longer scared me. I am deeply grateful to Professor Anat Loewenstein, as well as the specialists of the Sourasky Clinic for the work done. The world around me shone with colors!

I am very satisfied with the level of service at Rambam Clinic. I came for cataract treatment, because our doctors sent me immediately for surgery. Israeli experts conducted the survey with a responsible professional approach. The correct diagnosis was made and a course of treatment was prescribed, surgery is not required now. All visits to the doctor are at the appointed time, which made it possible to visit excursions. Thank you for arranging accommodation and transfer. Many thanks to the team of coordinators who accompanied 24/7 throughout the trip. Also, thanks to the staff of the clinic for their care, professionalism and humanity. I will be treated by you until recovery.

I would like to thank all the doctors of the Ihilov Clinic for a comfortable examination, consultation with Professor Anat Levenstein and the operation itself. Everyone is very friendly, responsive, explained everything and reassured. I am very happy with the results of the surgery, I can’t believe that I can see well again. I recommend it to everyone!

I arrived with cataracts in both eyes, I could hardly see in my right eye. I’m leaving – vision is 100% in both eyes. Thank you very much! I’m happy.

The medical staff at Sheba Clinic works like clockwork. All doctors and nurses are very attentive and courteous with patients, everyone is very polite. In a word, comfortable. Single room, has everything you need. I’m satisfied.

Diagnosis: cataract

I chose a clinic for the treatment of cataracts not on the principle of where it is cheaper, but on the principle of where the operation is performed with better quality. The choice fell on Assuta. I was offered ultrasonic phacoemulsification. Already in the evening after the operation, the vision began to gradually improve and became almost 100% in a few days.

Diagnosis: cataract

I have a type 1 diabetic cataract. Our local ophthalmology clinic refused to operate on me because, on top of that, I suffer from hypertension. Therefore, I decided to undergo treatment at the Israeli Sheba clinic. I was lucky to get a consultation with Dr. Daniel Kotler, a top-class specialist, who very carefully double-checked all the indicators and took me for an operation. Everything went without complications and today, thanks to the professionalism of Dr. Kotler, I live a full life and can even enjoy reading my favorite books again.

Diagnosis: cataract + glaucoma

Recently, my mother (she is 70 years old) had a double operation for the treatment of cataracts and glaucoma in Assuta. Everything went well, no problems. We spent only a day in the hospital, she feels well.

Why choose cataract treatment in Israel?

Лечение катаракты в ИзраилеCataract is a common eye disease, in which there is a clouding of the natural glass eye of the lens. If left untreated, cataracts can lead to complete loss of vision.

According to the sources of the World Health Organization, this eye disease has been diagnosed in 65 million people in the world in recent years. At the same time, cataracts have caused blindness in almost 24 million people. Today, Turkish specialists can effectively deal with it in one day. This fact is confirmed by the positive feedback from patients on the Experts Medical website.

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the main successful treatment for cataracts is surgery. Modern technologies that guarantee success in 98% of cases are used by Turkish ophthalmologists. This is one of the main reasons why foreign patients come to Turkey for all kinds of eye surgeries.

What do you need to know about cataracts?

Фемтосекундный лазер IntraLaseA cataract is a serious eye disease caused by the appearance of cloudy spots on the lens. They usually increase in size over time, resulting in hazy and blurry vision. Most often occurs in older people.

Cataract symptoms may include:

  • dim and hazy vision;
  • inability to see objects at night or in low light;
  • all colors look faded, fuzzy, and muted;
  • sensitivity to light;
  • The patient sees everything around him as blurry, around objects there is a “halo” around bright lights.

Depending on which part of the lens is affected (central, lateral, or posterior), doctors classify different types of cataracts. A cataract can develop in one or both eyes without developing at the same time.

The basis of the occurrence of cataracts is the accumulation of protein in the lens. This process takes a long time, with time the lens becomes cloudy and loses its transparency.

The exact causes of the disease today could not be established. Among the possible factors for the formation of cataracts, doctors name eye injuries, previous eye surgery for other diseases, kidney failure, diabetes, overweight, smoking, and hereditary factors.

An ophthalmological examination includes a set of tests and examinations, including:

  • biomicroscopy of the eyeball is applied to study physiology and identify the pathology of the visible part of the eye;

  • ophthalmoscopy – examination of the fundus;
  • electrophysiological diagnostics of the retina allows to evaluate the work of the visual organs and identify disorders in the retina;
  • optical coherence tomography is used to study the functions of eye tissues;
  • angiography and Doppler diagnostics of the eye allow to carefully examine the eye vessels;
  • refractometry, viscometry, and perimetry with and without correction allow doctors to determine the refraction of the eye, field, and visual acuity;
  • keratometry is used to detect corneal curvature;
  • laboratory studies allow to exclude or confirm the presence of eye infections, inflammations, and viruses.

Indications for Cataract Surgery

Замена хрусталика в ИзраилеDespite the widespread occurrence of the disease, today there is no drug therapy that would eliminate the cause and consequences of cataracts. Therefore, the only way to restore vision to the patient is through surgery.

Cataract surgery involves removing the lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens – an intraocular lens. Turkish ophthalmologists use different types of implants: monofocal, multifocal, toric, and accommodative.

The doctor decides on the choice of the type of lens based on the anatomical structure of the patient’s eye. Cataract surgery in Turkey is performed if the visual impairment caused by the disease prevents the patient from leading a normal life.

Lens replacement surgery for cataracts may be indicated for a variety of medical reasons, which may include:

  • overripe and swelling cataract;
  • dislocation or subluxation of the lens;
  • accession of secondary glaucoma;
  • the need to diagnose the fundus: before treating other eye diseases, before performing a laser surgical procedure.

After a thorough diagnosis, the Turkish ophthalmologist decides on the need for surgical treatment and determines the optimal technique.

 

Cataract Surgery in Turkey: Basic Methods

Depending on the indications for cataract removal, Turkish ophthalmologists can perform both extracapsular cataract extraction and more gentle laser-mechanical or ultrasound interventions.

Методы лечения катаракты в ИзраилеIn partner clinics of Experts Medical in Turkey, the following surgical methods of cataract removal are available to patients:

  1. Ultrasonic phacoemulsification is the most popular cataract surgery in Turkey among foreign patients. This is a microsurgical procedure, during which the doctor destroys the clouded lens using ultrasound, and then removes it from the eye cavity with a special thin aspirator. The operation lasts 5 minutes and does not involve suturing. Vision begins to improve within 3 hours. Full recovery of the patient takes 1-2 days.
  2. Laser phacoemulsification is a new word in modern ophthalmology. It is the most sparing method of surgical treatment. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that the doctor performs all incisions to remove and replace the lens using a special laser. After that, it replaces the affected lens with a flexible intraocular lens. Laser cataract treatment in Turkey is carried out as quickly and accurately as possible, and the risk of complications and side effects is minimized. After 3 hours the patient leaves the hospital. The only negative may be the higher cost of the procedure compared to other methods.
  3. Mechanical phacofragmentation. During the manipulation, the doctor removes the affected lens through a small incision. After that, an intraocular lens is implanted in its place, an artificial lens. There are also no stitches in this procedure.
  4. Extracapsular extraction is a special operation to remove cataracts. The intervention involves the removal of a cataract through a deep incision in the eyeball. Postoperative sutures are removed after 2-3 months. This operation is carried out exclusively in the later stages of the disease with mature cataracts.

Cataract treatment in Turkish hospitals is also carried out after LASIK laser vision correction. This is done so that the effect after installing the intraocular lens is not reduced, which happens in the presence of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Therefore, the doctor may decide on a complex surgical procedure.

 

Contraindications for cataract surgery

Like any other operation, cataract surgery has a number of contraindications. They can be temporary or absolute.

Temporary ones include pregnancy, acute infections in the body, including eye infections, and SARS.

Absolute contraindications to the operation include:

  • functional disorders of the retina and mechanical injuries of the eye;
  • cardiovascular diseases;
  • serious condition of the patient after a heart attack, stroke;
  • diabetes mellitus.

There are also age restrictions. As a rule, many clinics do not perform laser and ultrasound procedures on patients under 18 years of age.

The American Hospital in Istanbul specializes in laser treatment of cataracts and other eye diseases in the elderly. If it is impossible to treat cataracts surgically, the patient is prescribed drug therapy aimed at slowing the progression of the disease.
