I was choosing a clinic, I’m not sure, I’m not sure what I’ve been trying to do. as soon as possible ... Thanks to the coordinator, Dmitry Belik, Now, I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. For their health care team, they are Bookid and Cagin eye Hospital. It is a highly qualified specialist.

My mom had retinal detachment and cataracts, we were very confused, could not choose a clinic (there was too much conflicting information about clinics in Turkey), while they decided to confide, lost time, the operation had to be done as soon as possible .... Thanks to the coordinator, Dmitry Belik, we were able to quickly make a decision and ended up at Cagin hospital. Now, I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Kursat Cagin for his excellent work and professionalism, and to all the staff at Cagin Hospital for their well-coordinated work, as well as their attentive and kind attitude to patients. We did not regret that we trusted Bookimed and the hospital Cagin. About the hospital, I want to briefly write that this is a specialized ophthalmological hospital, equipped with modern equipment for diagnosis and treatment, and all the hospital staff are really highly qualified specialists.

Cagin Eye Hospital in figures


Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea when it becomes thinner and deformed. 500 patients with keratoconus undergo treatment in the Department annually.

Cagin ophthalmologists use such treatment methods as:

  • Implantation of the corneal ring

With the help of a laser, an ophthalmologist places transparent arcs in the eye. They stabilize the curvature of the cornea and stop the progression of the disease. Corneal rings are made of a biocompatible material that fits well in the eye.

Implantation of the corneal rings is recommended for patients in the early stages of the disease.

  • Corneal crosslinking

This is an innovative method of keratoconus treating. An ophthalmologist applies ultraviolet light and individual drops to strengthen the cornea. Firstly, doctors drip the riboflavin (vitamin B12), then they affect the corneal layer with ultraviolet radiation. The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

Corneal crosslinking


The operation is performed in patients with corneal impairments or keratoconus in the late stages. Cagin doctors use a donor cornea for transplantation.

Ophthalmologists apply lamellar keratoplasty, the most modern method of transplantation. This is a layer-by-layer replacement of only 1 damaged corneal layer. During the procedure, the healthy eye tissues are preserved.


Cataract surgery is a removal of the clouded lens and its replacement by an artificial one.

Cagin doctors apply phacoemulsification, a safe and minimally invasive method of cataract removal. An ophthalmologist makes a micro-incision on the eye using a laser, crushes the clouded lens and replace it with artificial one.

Advantages of phacoemulsification:

  • accurate incision;
  • the soft crushing of cataract by ultrasound;
  • rapid healing of the eye compared to the open surgery.

Doctors develop an individual treatment plan for vision correction based on the diagnosis and features of the eye. Ophthalmologists use such modern treatment options as:

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)

PRK is used to correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

This technique is considered the most traumatic. During the procedure a doctor scrapes the upper epithelium of the eye. Healing process lasts 2-5 days.

During the PRK procedure, an ophthalmologist corrects the shape of the cornea with an excimer laser. Laser radiation changes the cornea curvature and returns patient’s normal vision.

LASEK eye surgery

LASEK vision correction is recommended for patients with a thin cornea.

With the help of a laser, a doctor makes an accurate incision on the upper layer of the eye and lifts it carefully. The laser beam acts directly on the cornea to give it the correct shape.

The procedure is painless. Normal vision returns to a patient in 7-10 days.

LASIK eye surgery

It is the most minimally invasive method of vision correction. During the LASIK eye surgery, doctors apply 2 lasers. The 1st laser forms a protective film on the eye and pushes back the top layer to access the cornea. The 2nd one affects the cornea and corrects its shape for the wright light refraction.

Recovery after the procedure is rapid. A patient may return to work and drive in 24 hours.

iLASIK eye surgery

This is an advanced LASIK technology that includes computer modeling of the operation. NASA has officially approved the iLASIK technique for astronauts' treatment.
