The patient underwent consultation with an ophthalmologist in LIV Hospital
star star star star_border star_border

I went to Liv hospital to do laser vision correction with the femto lasik method. However, I was not able to do this operation. The doctor who examined me found a small chance of 1 in 5,000 of the occurrence of a complication after the operation, and refused to do the operation. This is a brief description of my trip. Now I will tell in detail. I came to Istanbul for the second time to see a doctor to do a laser vision correction. The first time was in October 2018, but then I needed to strengthen the retina with an argon laser. Strengthening the retina was successful, and now my retina is in good condition. And the laser vision correction was postponed to December 2018. When I arrived in December (I am writing about this trip now), the doctor already knew that I want to do a laser vision correction. However, the operation was canceled. I do not understand why the doctor did not warn me about the cancellation of the operation earlier, in October? He could have examined me in October using his instruments. I specifically singled out a week in December for this operation, but the operation was not done. On the other hand, this doctor has a strong positive side - for a modest fee, he gave me quite a lot of time and attention. First, he examined me with his instruments, where he works. The devices showed that the situation with the right eyes is uncertain - it is unclear whether it is possible to perform an operation, or not. Then the doctor examined me several times with the same instruments, analyzed my images for a long time and discussed the problem with the nurses and the nurse. It took a few hours. Then the doctor said that my situation was not quite normal, and I contacted my colleague who works at American University Hastanesi, if I remember the name correctly. In this place recently appeared some new ophthalmologic apparatus, which is considered one of the newest. And the doctor arranged for me to do an additional examination there on this device free of charge in order to clarify my borderline situation. Then came the negative point: the doctor said that my situation is borderline, and if I have an operation, there is a small risk of complications on the sclera or on the cornea, I did not understand exactly. If there are complications, another operation will be needed. Therefore, I have one day to decide whether I agree to have surgery despite the risk. I thought until the morning, decided to have an operation and reported it. However, after that the doctor invited me to his place, talked about the fact that he would not take the risk, and as a result refused to do the operation. I do not understand, if the doctor in any case decided not to have an operation for me, why did he ask me to think one day and make a decision? In addition, if I can’t do the femto lasik correction, why haven’t I been offered an alternative - the smile method, the implantation of phakic lenses? Why didn’t the doctor say a word about these alternatives? I myself asked about phakic lenses, but the doctor and the staff were very busy at that time, in parallel with me the doctor was still taking other patients, and I did not receive an answer to the question. This is the description of my trip to Liv Hospital. Next, I will look for another doctor to do a laser vision correction.

The patient underwent laser eye surgery in LIV Hospital
star star star star star_border

I conducted an eye examination and an operation to strengthen the retina with an argon laser at Liv Hospital. My operation was successful, I feel fine. Therefore, I am pleased with the treatment at Liv Hospital. From the positive points about the hospital, I can say the following. I have a good impression of the doctor who examined and treated me and his colleague who also examined me. In my case, the hospital organized a free transfer from the airport to the airport. Of the shortcomings I can name a few. First, translator Laysan did not do her job well because she did not translate everything I said to the doctor. When I asked a specific question - "Why should I not remove redness from the eye?" or "How long the eyes will recover after surgery" - she did not transfer them to the doctor. Instead, she herself began to say something to me, sometimes in a not very polite manner. When I asked to find out if the doctor could recommend me suitable glasses, she again did not want to transfer the doctor. After each of these questions that I asked, I had to persuade Leysan to make her translate them into Turkish and. Sometimes it was possible to persuade in a minute, sometimes she argued with me for a long time. This manner of communication had a bad effect on the quality of medical care, because of her I did not have time to discuss with my doctor some details concerning my health. In fact, my communication with the doctor was difficult. For a fair review, I note that Lysan did not always do this. Once she spent her time on purpose and helped me find out what I did not have time to ask the doctor during the reception. But still, translation difficulties were significant.

FAQ

What is corrective eye surgery?

The laser (refractive) eye surgery is a set of procedures to correct the common vision problems.

The operative vision correctness help to stop wearing glasses and contact lenses.

What vision problems does the laser surgery solve?

Ophthalmologists of the laser vision centers offer the corrective operations in cases of:

  • Myopia (near sight, nearsightedness) is a vision abnormality when a person sees only the close objects, but the farther away ones are blurred. The near sight is 1 of 3 leading blindness causes. 30% of people worldwide are myopic.
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness, hypermetropia) is the widespread vision condition when a person sees the distant objects more clearly in comparison with the close ones. 15% of people with refractive problems are hypermetropic.
  • Presbyopia is a loss of possibility to focus on the objects in the aged people. 1.3 billion people over the world have presbyopia. Most often presbyopia occurs after age of 40.
  • Astigmatism is the optic condition that makes the eye to focus incorrectly and causes the blurred vision. It is a common eye impairment in children and adults. Over 45% of people worldwide have astigmatism.

How does the refractive surgery repair the eyes impairments?

Eye doctors perform the laser vision surgery for people aged 18-55. The refractive procedures are the best treatment options for persons who have:

  • astigmatism from -1,0 to 15,0 diopters
  • farsightedness from +1,0 to 6,0 diopters
  • nearsightedness from ± 0,5 to ± 5,0 diopters.

With any visual impairment, the image of the surrounding objects does not focus on the retina of the eye.

The main aim of the laser vision correction is to change the shape of the cornea. It makes the image of objects fall precisely on the retina of the eye.

Laser vision surgery: to be or not to be?

Several million of the laser eye surgeries are performed over the world annually. The vision correction surgeries are considered the most effective and safest visual treatments for over 20 years.

What are the advantages of the laser eye procedures?

  • Safety. 99% of the laser eye surgeries are successful. It means that there are no complications and side effects of the refractive therapy.
  • Suitable for any visual impairment treatment. 20/20 vision without glasses or contact lenses after the surgery. If a patient has no contraindications, the laser eye correction can restore vision in the patients with myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia.
  • Appropriate at any age. Patients aged 18 to 55 are the optimal candidates for this procedure.
  • Surgery time. The operation itself takes a few seconds to a minute. The rest of the time is spent on preparatory procedures and takes 10 minutes per eye.
  • No pain. Doctors of the laser vision centers apply the anesthetic drops. They block pain sensitivity entirely. A patient feels only touches and pressure at some phases of the operation.
  • Outpatient basis. There is no need to stay in an eye laser clinic after the procedure. A patient comes back home in 1 hour after the correction.
  • Quick recovery period. A patient may notice the 1st results in 2 hours after the laser eye surgery. During a few days to several weeks vision stabilizes completely.
  • Predictable results. A patient may rely on the visual acuity that s/he has in glasses or lenses before the correction.
  • Stability of the operation results. After the laser correction of vision, the shape of the cornea persists for life (if a patient does not have progressive myopia).

What are the refractive eye surgery steps?

All the types of the laser correction procedures consist of 3 steps:

  1. Creation of the superficial corneal flap with the help of microkeratome or laser. The flap is taken away as a page of the book.
  2. The laser beam changes the shape of the cornea according to the patient’s characteristics.
  3. Returning of the corneal flap to its original position and its engraftment without stitches and scars.

What are the types of laser eye surgery?

  • LASIK (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) is the most common kind of the laser operations. Performing the procedure, ophthalmologists take into account the individual features of the patient's cornea structure. Specialists of the laser vision centers carry out the LASIK surgery with the microkeratome or the femtosecond laser. The patients have a good vision at all distances without glasses or lenses.

97% of the LASIK surgeries are successful. 7 out of 10 patients have 20/20 vision after the LASIK procedure. Over 95% of all patients are satisfied with the LASIK results.

  • LASEK/PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy/Laser Subepithelial Keratomileusis) is the refractive surgery method for vision correction in cases of contraindications to LASIK procedures. For example, when a patient has too thin cornea, the LASIK therapy is impossible. Ophthalmologists perform the LASEK surgery using the excimer laser. During the first 3 days after PRK surgery, a patient feels discomfort and pain. It is the primary disadvantage of the LASEK procedure.

The recovery period after the LASEK lasts 3-4 days. The visual improvement is noticed in 3 days after the procedure.

  • ReLEx SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction) is the most innovative type of the laser vision correction. Eye doctors perform the SMILE operation with the femtosecond laser of high precision. The procedure takes 23 seconds. A specialist makes no incisions during the process. There are no risks and side effects of the ReLEx SMILE. The surgery is suitable for the treatment of visual impairment at all stages.

Over 700,000 people in 60 countries worldwide are treated with the ReLex SMILE procedure annually.

100% is a success rate of the ReLEx SMILE operations. 98% of patients are satisfied with the results of the procedure. 97% of people are willing to recommend the SMILE to their family and friends.

What factors affect the laser eye surgery cost?

How much does it cost for laser eye surgery? There is no absolute answer to this question. The laser operation for eyes cost depends on the number of factors.

  • Laser vision center location. The prices for the laser eye surgery vary from country to country dramatically. The main reason for this is the economic development of the state. In the highly developed countries (the USA, Germany, Spain, the UK) the procedure is over 50% higher than in the less developed nations (Thailand, India, Turkey).
  • Eye laser clinic status. The state clinics provide the cheap laser eye surgery cost. But the healthcare services are of the poor standard. The private laser eye centers show the best results in the refractive therapy, but the prices for the procedures are much higher.
  • Laser eye surgery type. The laser eye center costs depend on the procedure chosen by a patient. The ReLex SMILE surgery is approximately 15% higher than the LASIK procedure. And the LASEK one is performed with the cheap laser eye surgery cost in comparison with SMILE and LASIK.
  • Additional services. The laser operation for eyes cost may include pre- and postoperative care, meals, accommodation (if needed), medicaments. Some laser vision centers provide the extra charges for these services. Be attentive and clarify the information about the price policy at a center!
