The patient was treated of keratoconus in Memorial Şişli Hospital

The clinic has a welcoming atmosphere, but the wait for each appointment and an interpreter is sooo long. Doctor A. Ozkaya proved himself to be a professional, answered all our questions, the corneal transplant operation for my one-year-old child was rather quick and effective at the moment. We came across a very polite and excellent Bookimed coordinator Jan, he helped on any even minor issue, contacted the clinic, helped absolutely with everything! You have wonderful employees, prosperity and all the best! В клинике располагающая атмосфера, но ожидание каждого приема и переводчика - ооочень долго. Врач А.Озкая проявил себя, как профессионал, отвечал на все наши вопросы, операция по пересадке роговицы моему годовалому ребенку прошла довольно быстро и на данный момент эффективно.

Нам попался очень вежливый и отличный координатор Bookimed Ян, он по любому даже незначительному вопросу помогал, связывался с клиникой, помогал абсолютно со всем! У вас прекрасные сотрудники, процветания вам и всего наилучшего!

Questions and answers

What is ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye diseases, partial and complete vision loss.

Pediatric ophthalmology is a subdivision of ophthalmology that studies the characteristics of children's vision. The child’s vision, unlike that of an adult, is constantly changing. Pediatric eye doctors study the features of a child’s vision changes and related pathologies.

What does an eye doctor treat?

Ophthalmologists in Turkey correct not only vision impairments but diseases of the eyeball, eyelids, lacrimal organs, conjunctiva, and eyepit as well. 

The most common eye disorders an ophthalmologist can help you to cope with are:

  • nearsightedness (myopia) is a visual impairment when the image is focused in front of the retina and the person cannot clearly see distant objects
  • farsightedness (hyperopia) is a visual impairment when the image focuses behind the retina of the eye and a person cannot clearly see close objects
  • conjunctivitis — inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye (conjunctiva)
  • cataract — a clouding of the lens of the eye
  • glaucoma — increased eye pressure causing visual impairment
  • astigmatism — a violation of the shape of the lens or cornea.

How is the eye disease diagnosis carried out?

At the initial appointment, the ophthalmologist in Turkey conducts an examination and computer vision diagnostics. To determine various visual impairments, the following eye tests are carried out:

  • autorefractometry (a measurement of the refractive power of the eye)
  • keratometry (assessment of the curvature of the cornea anterior surface)
  • non-contact measurement of intraocular pressure
  • corneal topography or photokeratoscopy (scanning the surface of the cornea)
  • ultrasound of the eye (necessary to assess the condition of the membranes of the eyeball, allows diagnosing changes in the retina and vitreous body, determination of intraocular neoplasms)
  • ultrasound biometry (determination of the length of the eye, the thickness of the lens, the depth of the anterior chamber)
  • pachymetry (measuring the thickness of the cornea using ultrasound)
  • direct and reverse ophthalmoscopy (assessment of the state of the retina, choroid, optic disc, macular zone based on examination of the fundus)
  • biomicroscopy (a method that allows examining the anterior and posterior parts of the eyeball with different lighting and image sizes). The study is carried out using a special slit lamp device.
  • gonioscopy (examination and assessment of the anterior chamber angle).

Comprehensive ophthalmologic diagnosis in Turkey allows the ophthalmologist to identify visual impairments and latent refractive errors, develop the most effective treatment plan.

What are eye treatment methods?

To treat eye diseases, ophthalmologists use the following methods:

  • drug therapy — the use of drops, vitamins, injections to treat disorders
  • physiotherapy — considered the most effective in inflammatory diseases treatment 
  • eye surgery — used in cases when conservative treatment does not give the desired results.

What are the indications for eye surgery in Turkey?

The most common visual impairments are considered glaucoma and cataracts. These diseases are dangerous because they can lead to a significant decrease or even loss of vision. Therefore, surgical intervention is often prescribed to eliminate these effects.

The surgery is also required for treatment of the following diseases:

  • refractive disorders
  • severe endophthalmitis (inflammation of the interior of the eye)
  • progressive severe visual impairment
  • astigmatism
  • concussion
  • inflammatory diseases
  • retinal detachment.

What are the methods of eye operations?

Ophthalmologists in Turkey perform three types of operations:

  • surgery for medical reasons to preserve vision, remove a tumor or prevent the spread of infection
  • operations to eliminate refractive errors like farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism
  • plastic surgery to eliminate defects such as benign neoplasms, entropion, ptosis, or to change the incision and color of the eyes, remove bags under the eyes.

What are the most common eye surgeries in Turkey performed?

The following operations are most often performed:

  • keratoplasty — corneal transplant in case of cornea defects and other serious changes
  • corneal cross-linking — an alternative to keratoplasty for keratoconus treatment at the initial stages
  • laser vision correction 
  • retinal laser photocoagulation
  • PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) — myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism correction using an excimer ophthalmic laser
  • lens replacement surgery
  • cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation
  • glaucoma surgery.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.
