We at Medicana Health Group know how important eye health is to your well-being. We provide thorough Ophthalmology departments at each of our hospitals because of this. Here are a few of the services we provide to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of various eye conditions:

Evaluations of Contact Lenses and Glasses

These examinations are essential to preserving clear eyesight and good eye health. Our eye disease units at Medicana Health Group have skilled and experienced optometrists who specialize in conducting thorough eyeglass and contact lens assessments.

During an eyeglass evaluation, the optometrist will evaluate your vision, check the health of your eyes, and establish your prescription for glasses. They will also assess your lifestyle and visual requirements to suggest the finest kind of lenses, such as internet use, reading, and outdoor activities.

The optometrist will examine your eyes during a contact lens evaluation to decide whether contact lenses suit you. They will also assess your visual requirements and select which contact lens option is appropriate for you, such as daily disposables, extended wear, or colored contacts.

Surgery for Cataracts

A cataract is a hazy or opaque spot in the eye's lens that impairs vision. It is frequently removed by surgery, which is often advised when cataracts are causing severe visual issues, such as fuzzy vision, difficulties seeing at night, sensitivity to light and glare, or frequent adjustments to eyeglass prescriptions.

The clouded lens is removed during surgery, performed under local anesthesia, and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). Ultrasound energy is often used to break the lens into small fragments, which are removed through the incision during the procedure.

The surgical approach can vary, but phacoemulsification is the most frequently employed. Using ultrasound energy, the lens is broken up and removed through a small incision. Another method is manual minor incision cataract surgery (MSICS), in which the lens is manually removed with a blade after a small incision is made.

The substitute IOLs can be either a standard monofocal lens or a more expensive lens with better vision at various distances, like a multifocal or toric lens. The patient's unique needs, including age, lifestyle, and visual requirements, are often considered when selecting an IOL.

Cataract surgery is a secure and efficient way to restore eyesight clarity and raise quality of life. Patients can frequently return to their regular activities a few days following the operation because it is a routine procedure with a high success rate. Foreign patients, visitors, and expatriates in Turkey can choose Medicana for their cataract surgery requirements because our Ophthalmology units have highly qualified and experienced ophthalmologists who use the most up-to-date medical equipment and methods to provide the best possible patient care.

Evaluation and Treatment of Glaucoma

A series of eye conditions known as glaucoma can cause blindness and visual loss if unchecked. To protect vision, glaucoma must be diagnosed and treated early. Our eye disease center at Medicana provides thorough glaucoma assessments to identify and track this illness. Our team of skilled ophthalmologists uses modern tools and technology to conduct comprehensive eye exams, including monitoring eye pressure, analyzing the optic nerve, and inspecting the retina.

Our team of specialists will work with you to create a specialized treatment plan once glaucoma has been diagnosed. Opioid medicine in the form of eye drops, laser therapy, and surgery are available for glaucoma treatments. Our mission is to reduce or stop additional eyesight loss while enhancing your quality of life.

We are committed to offering our glaucoma patients the best possible care. Our eye disease section features the most advanced equipment, operated by skilled ophthalmologists dedicated to giving each patient the best results possible. Foreign patients, visitors, and expatriates in Turkey may rely on Medicana to provide the best care possible.

Evaluations and Treatments for the Retina

The retina is the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye that sends visual signals to the brain. Thus, retina evaluations and treatments are essential to eye health care. Medicana Ophthalmologists use the most up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic technologies when performing retina evaluations and treatments.

Our ophthalmologists complete eye exams to find indicators of retinal damage, such as macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and retinal tears. They may occasionally use cutting-edge imaging methods like optical coherence tomography (OCT) or fluorescein angiography to obtain an in-depth retina image.

Our ophthalmologists can then suggest the best course of action if they notice any issues with the retina. This could involve surgery, photodynamic therapy, or laser therapy. For instance, diabetic retinopathy, which can harm the blood vessels in the retina, can be treated using laser therapy. A specific dye is injected into the bloodstream during photodynamic treatment to detect and treat aberrant blood vessels in the retina.

If surgery is necessary to treat a retinal detachment, our ophthalmologists are skilled at carrying out intricate procedures, including vitrectomy, which involves extracting the vitreous gel from the eye. Our patients obtain the finest results from their retina assessments and treatments thanks to our cutting-edge facilities, highly skilled surgical teams, and dedication to patient safety.

Refractive Surgery and LASIK

Modern methods like LASIK and refractive surgery treat visual issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Using precise laser technology, these operations reshape the cornea, the transparent layer that covers the outside of the eye. They improve vision by ensuring that light entering the eye appropriately focuses on the retina.

A common form of refractive surgery called LASIK precisely shapes the cornea using a cold light beam. Patients can quickly resume their regular activities after the short, painless, and often minimally disruptive operation.

Our eye disease departments at Medicana are equipped with cutting-edge technology and highly skilled ophthalmologists who use the most recent surgical methods to ensure our patients get the finest outcomes. Our dedication to ongoing education and training and the creation of cutting-edge tools and technology shows how serious we are about our patients' safety and satisfaction.

Whether they are foreign patients, visitors, or expats in Turkey who want to enhance their vision, Medicana offers a secure, dependable, and cost-effective solution for all of their eye-care requirements. Thanks to its top-notch facilities and skilled eye doctors, Medicana is the most excellent option for people seeking the highest standard of care and the finest results from their eye surgeries.
