Diagnosis: strabismus

I brought my eight year old son to Shiba Clinic for treatment of strabismus. The child was diagnosed and surgery was scheduled. After the surgery there followed a period of our active work on the result – hardware therapy, exercises, wearing prism glasses. And the result surpassed all expectations – eyes look straight and vision improved from 2% to 70%.

Diagnosis: strabismus

For a long time I doubted whether to fly to Israel for treatment or not. After a video consultation with Dr. Loewenstein I had no doubts left. From her words I realized that I could be helped. The surgery for strabismus was successful, the position of the eyeballs was corrected, thanks to which I finally stopped complexing and began to feel confident in public.

Diagnosis: strabismus

I had strabismus since childhood, I went to the hospital, the doctors prescribed exercises that helped, but only a little. The older I got, the more noticeable the problem became, I began to feel very complex about it, I felt inferior and unattractive. Then came the goal to be cured, and in our doctors there was no confidence. I came across the site of Ihilov clinic, contacted a consultant and in 2 weeks I had an operation and completely corrected the situation. I am very grateful to the Israeli doctors for giving me beauty and confidence.

Diagnosis: strabismus

Our 10-year-old daughter has amblyopia and congenital myopia. Since the age of 3 we have been under the supervision of an ophthalmologist and carefully followed all the recommendations of the doctor, thanks to which we managed to maintain binocular vision. But in the last two years our eyesight has deteriorated greatly, and strabismus has appeared. In Ikhilov Clinic my daughter underwent a number of diagnostic procedures, was prescribed a course of hardware therapy and wearing special lenses. Positive dynamics appeared almost immediately and now we are on the right path to achieving the desired results.

What are the advantages of strabismus treatment in Israel?

Treatment of strabismus in IsraelTreatment of strabismus in Israel is characterized by safety & low traumatism. Israeli doctors combine advanced therapeutic and minimally traumatic surgical techniques. Each patient has selected the most effective therapy strategy in his case. 

According to summary data from hospitals in Israel, doctors can permanently relieve children and adults from pathology without repeated surgery in almost 100% of cases. The main advantage, in addition to high quality, is the affordable price of strabismus treatment in Israel.

 

Why is it important to eliminate strabismus?

Strabismus (strabismus) is an eye disorder manifested by a deviation of one or both eyes in relation to the central axis. It usually develops during childhood. According to WHO, about 4% of children have this pathology. 

This is not only a cosmetic defect of appearance but also a disease in which visual acuity decreases, neurological disorders may occur. In complex cases, blindness may develop. Therefore, it is important to undergo quality treatment of strabismus in Israel and get rid of the defect forever.

What diagnostics is performed before starting strabismus treatment in Israel?

Diagnosis before starting strabismus treatment in IsraelAn eye examination of the patient is performed using high-precision equipment and classical and innovative methods. In the Assuta Clinic in Tel Aviv, a set of diagnostic procedures includes:

  • collection of anamnesis – the doctor determines the causes of strabismus;
  • visual acuity testing with and without the use of special lenses;
  • ophthalmoscopy and biomicroscopy – to determine the condition of the anterior parts of the eyeball, the eye fundus and the transparency of the ocular environment;
  • measurement of eye divergence angles;
  • computerized refractometry and skiascopy – to assess the degree of clinical refraction;
  • assessment of the position of the patient’s head, eyeballs, symmetry of parts of the face, and eye slits.

The doctor may invite a neurologist for consultation if a paralytic form is suspected. In this case, a person may need additional tests.

What conservative techniques are offered in Israel for the treatment of strabismus?

conservative techniques for the treatment of strabismus in IsraelTreatment of strabismus in Israel, regardless of age, always begins with conservative therapy. Ophthalmologists select an individualized plan for the patient, which includes effective techniques for each case. Among them:

  1. Special glasses or contact lenses. A standard therapy option in the presence of refractive disorders. Correct the focus of the eyes and reduce the tone of the eye muscles.
  2. Patches, glasses with closed glass. Indicated in pathology caused by amblyopia (lazy eye). The patch closes the strong eye, forcing the weak one to function actively. 
  3. Orthoptic therapy. A set of exercises designed to strengthen and coordinate muscles, and improve binocular vision and depth perception. It is performed under the guidance of a doctor with the use of special devices: convergence trainers, synchronizers, stereoscopes.
  4. Pharmacological treatment – use special eye drops and ointments. 
  5. Botulinum toxin injections – contribute to the reduction of muscle spasms and, in some cases, are an alternative to surgery. 
When is it better to do surgery?

Optimal to carry out surgical treatment of strabismus in Israel for children, according to ophthalmologists of the Herzliya Medical Center, at the age of 4-6 years. The child has not yet fully formed a visual function, so it is easier to achieve good visual acuity. A special rehabilitation complex of exercises can be effective at this age.

Treatment of strabismus in Israel: types of operations

Treatment of strabismus in Israel: types of operationsOphthalmologists in Israel have extensive experience in performing microsurgical procedures to correct the position of the eyes in 1 day. Surgical treatment of strabismus in Israel is aimed at correcting the eye muscles. The choice of technique is determined by the causes of pathology. The main types of interventions in the Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv include:

  1. Recession is an operation in which the surgeon moves and fixes the muscle in such a way as to weaken it. It helps to reduce the angle of deviation of the eye and bring it closer to its normal position.
  2. Anteposition – recommended for the paralytic form, when one of the eye muscles does not work due to nerve or brain damage. The doctor changes where the muscle is attached to the eye to enhance its action. 
  3. Plasticity is needed when one of the muscles is too short or stiff and restricts the eye’s movement. The surgeon lengthens the muscle, and it gains elasticity. 
  4. Resection – indicated when the muscle is weakened and does not control eye movement. The doctor shortens the muscle to activate its functioning. 

Surgical treatment of strabismus in Israel is usually performed within 45-60 minutes under local anesthesia.

What are adjustable sutures?

During surgical treatment of strabismus, ophthalmologists in Israel use adjustable suture technology. It allows you to adjust the position of the muscles after surgery without the need to perform it again. With this technique, surgeons at the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa achieve a 100% successful result even when performing repeated surgeries. This is confirmed by the reviews of many people who have undergone strabismus treatment in Israel.

How is rehabilitation after surgical treatment of strabismus in Israel?

Postoperative recovery of visual functions lasts 1-2 weeks and includes innovative hardware laser techniques:

  1. Synoptophore – increases eye muscle tone and restores binocular vision. 
  2. Monobinoscope – affects the pathologies of the eye structure and minimizes future relapse.

Reviews of patients confirm that after the treatment of strabismus and subsequent rehabilitation in Israel, vision is restored.

What is the price of strabismus treatment in Israel?

An ophthalmologist can announce the final cost after a thorough diagnosis of the oculomotor apparatus and understanding the pathology’s nature. On average, the price of strabismus treatment in Israel is 25-35% lower than in many countries of Western Europe and the USA.

What is written in reviews about strabismus treatment in Israel?

reviews about strabismus treatment in IsraelPatients who have undergone strabismus treatment in Israel, note in the reviews positive points:

  1. Accurate diagnosis made it possible to select a productive variant of therapy.
  2. Rapid recovery of visual fields after surgery within 1-2 days. At the same time, the central nervous system has fully adapted to the changes. 
  3. Painlessness of procedures and comfort in Israeli hospitals. 
  4. Support of medical staff.
  5. Affordable price for treatment of strabismus in Israel.
