Diagnosis: Myopia

I live in Moscow, Russia, but since my husband is Turkish, I decided to do a laser vision correction in the Veni Vidi Eye in Istanbul. I had  myopia in both eyes. The correction was performed immediately. I didn’t have pain after correction, my vision has fully recovered and again I perfectly see at a distance. I want to thank you for the staff of the clinic, for their care and efficiency. I recommend the doctor Ozer Kavatsioglu, an excellent specialist!

What is laser eye surgery abroad?

Laser eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery for vision correction performed on the cornea, the front transparent part of the eyeball. The procedure is performed by an ophthalmologist using a laser device. Laser eye surgery abroad is not a life-saving procedure and is performed purely at patients’ request, like plastic surgery on the face or body. People choose laser eye surgery abroad to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

Who needs laser eye surgery abroad?

Who needs laser eye surgery abroad: hyperopia, myopia, astigmatismLaser vision correction is necessary for patients who don’t like glasses or contact lenses and the inconvenience associated with them. That is, refractive laser eye surgery abroad is not a «treatment» but a correction of some visual impairments:

  • hyperopia;
  • myopia;
  • astigmatism.

Doctors do not perform laser eye surgery for everyone who needs it. The patient must be over 18 years old, have the same level of vision for the last year without changes, not be pregnant or nursing. Also, the patient shouldn`t have serious eye diseases.

 

What are the most popular types of laser eye surgery abroad?

most popular types of laser eye surgery abroad: LASIK, SMILE, PRKAn urgent question for all patients is «how to choose a country for laser eye surgery abroad?», «how much does laser eye surgery abroad cost?», and «is it worth going abroad for laser eye surger?». In addition to the chosen clinic and the doctor’s qualifications, the price is also affected by the type of laser procedure selected. 

The most popular and modern types of refractive laser eye surgery abroad are:

  • LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis): LASIK is the most common type of laser eye surgery abroad. It involves creating a thin cornea flap, reshaping the underlying tissue with an excimer laser, and repositioning the flap for rapid healing.
  • SMILE (small incision lens extraction): SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure that uses femtosecond laser technology to create a small, lens-like piece of tissue in the cornea. This tissue is then removed, reshaping the cornea and correcting myopia. SMILE is the newest laser eye surgery technology abroad.
  • PRK (photorefractive keratectomy): PRK is an alternative to LASIK suitable for people with thinner corneas or those not applicable for LASIK. It involves removing the cornea’s surface layer before using an excimer laser to reshape the corneal tissue. Healing takes place within a few days. PRK is the cheapest laser eye surgery procedure abroad (compared to LASIK or SMILE). 

Therefore, when a patient is looking for the best country for eye surgery, they should focus not only on the price but also on the modernity of laser devices and vision correction methods.

How is LASIK performed on the eye?

Laser eye surgery abroad: LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis)The procedure for LASIK laser eye surgery abroad is almost the same everywhere. On the day of surgery, the patient spends 3-4 hours in the clinic. The surgery takes only a few minutes and consists of three stages:

  • The doctor uses a microkeratome to create a precise corneal flap. 
  • The surgeon then lifts the flap and uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea underneath. The laser beam reshapes the cornea with extreme precision, correcting the specific refractive error. 
  • After the cornea is reshaped, the flap returns to its original position and fits naturally without stitches. 

Laser vision correction has become a routine and widespread procedure in the world. To determine where it is better to have laser eye treatment abroad, pay attention to the clinic’s qualifications, the ophthalmologists’ experience, and the number of operations they have performed. For example, the team of doctors at Expert Medical relies on patient reviews of laser eye surgery abroad, the achievements of ophthalmology clinics, and their own experience.

What does the patient feel during laser eye surgery?

Before the procedure, the doctor instills particular anesthetic drops into the patient’s eyes, which cause a temporary feeling of numbness. During the operation, a person sometimes feels mild pain and sometimes something like a burning sensation, and “the presence of sand or glass” in the eyes. All unpleasant feelings disappear within a few hours when the patient rests at home. After 24 hours, patients do not feel any discomfort, provided they follow the doctor’s postoperative recommendations.

For laser eye surgery abroad, a patient must allocate an average of 7 days. Upon returning home, the patient will not feel anything unusual in the eyes.

What is the rehabilitation after laser eye surgery abroad?

rehabilitation after laser eye surgery abroadAfter LASIK, the eye begins to heal immediately. The next day, most patients return to their daily lives. If PRK surgery is performed, in which the outer layer of the cornea is removed, healing takes several days.
