We at Medicana Health Group are aware of how important eye health is to your general wellbeing. 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.
The optometrist will evaluate your vision, check the health of your eyes, and establish your prescription for glasses during an eyeglass evaluation. In order to suggest the finest kind of lenses for you, they will also assess your lifestyle and visual requirements, such as internet use, reading, and outdoor activities.
The optometrist will examine your eyes during a contact lens evaluation to decide whether contact lenses are right for you. Additionally, they will assess your visual requirements and decide which contact lens option is appropriate for you, such as daily disposable, extended wear, or colored contacts.
Surgery for Cataracts
A cataract is a hazy or opaque spot in the lens of the eye that impairs vision. Cataracts are frequently removed by surgery. It is often advised when cataracts are posing serious 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 the surgery, which is done under local anesthetic, and is then swapped out for an intraocular lens (IOL). Ultrasound energy is often used to break the lens into little fragments, which are then removed through the incision during the procedure.
The surgical approach utilized can vary, but phacoemulsification is the one that is most frequently employed. Using ultrasound energy, the lens is broken up, and it is then removed through a small incision. Another method is called manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS), in which the lens is manually removed after a small incision is made with a blade.
the substitute IOLs can be either a common 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 taken into consideration while selecting an IOL.
All things considered, 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 a team of highly qualified and experienced ophthalmologists who use the most up-to-date medical equipment and methods to provide the best possible patient care.

Evaluations and Treatments for the Retina
As the retina is the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye that is in charge of sending visual signals to the brain, retina evaluations and treatments are an essential component of eye health care. Ophthalmologists at Medicana Ophthalmology departments use the most up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic technologies when performing retina evaluations and treatments.
To find any indicators of retinal damage, such as macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and retinal tears, our ophthalmologists do complete eye exams. To obtain an in-depth image of the retina, they may occasionally use cutting-edge imaging methods like optical coherence tomography (OCT) or fluorescein angiography.
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 assist 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 are used to treat visual issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. These operations reshape the cornea, the transparent layer that covers the outside of the eye, with the help of precise laser technology, improving vision by ensuring that light entering the eye is appropriately focused onto 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 outfitted with cutting-edge technology and staffed with highly skilled ophthalmologists who use the most recent surgical methods to ensure that our patients get the finest outcomes.
