The eye is one of our most important organs. If the necessary care is not taken, some eye diseases will reduce the patient's quality of life and most importantly, cause vision loss. At this point, every individual with or without complaints should have an eye examination regularly and take early precautions against a possible eye disease. The advancement of technology and significant developments in eye diseases in recent years both facilitate the diagnosis of diseases in the field of eye diseases and increase the success rate of treatments.
Some Applications in Eye Diseases:
Argon Laser Photocoagulation
Argon Laser Photocoagulation application is a treatment method applied to eliminate the leaks in the eyes and to protect the eyesight. The high-energy beams of the argon laser are applied to the retina of the eye. This treatment method is generally preferred for intraocular bleeding and diabetic retinopathy diseases caused by diabetes.
Lasik Treatment, which makes it possible to treat myopia up to 12 degrees and hyperopia up to 6 degrees, as well as the problem of astigmatism, has helped many people to get happy results. As a result of this method, which has been used for nearly 30 years, the pain that occurs after laser treatment has been greatly reduced. Thanks to this method, which shows its effect immediately, the person regains the ability to see the next day and does not cause a noticeable stain on the cornea. FDA-approved Lasik Excimer Laser Treatment in the USA has achieved successful results in millions of people.
Optical Coherence Tomography
In Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) shots, the retinal layer is precisely displayed and measured with low laser energy.
This examination is carried out in order to make a detailed analysis of the structural condition of the eye in diseases that may occur in some parts of the eye such as macular degeneration and optic nerve, choroid, retinopathy and retina.
Vitreoretinal Surgery is a treatment method that removes the disturbances in the retina of the eye and removes the vitreous in the posterior region of the eye by surgical intervention.
Phacoemulsification (Phaco) Method
Phacoemulsification (Phaco) Method, which is a common method used in the treatment of cataracts, is the separation of the eye lens from other layers with the help of a special liquid called viscoelastic gel without any damage to the eye. The most important feature of this method is that it is performed with the help of small incisions of 2 mm. Thanks to the phaco device, which is inserted into the eye through a 2.2 mm incision and works with ultrasonic wave power, the lens is broken into particles and removed from the eye. The lens of the eye is cleaned, then a new lens is placed in the posterior capsule sac.
