Although it depends on the type of surgery performed, there usually is no need for stitching with today's cataract surgery techniques.
The time taken for the patient to have a normal vision after surgery varies depending on the difficulty of the operation and the rigidity of the cataract.
Within 1 week to 15 days a good vision point is reached. The patient will heal completely within 15 days to 30 days. A patient who came in for the right time for the surgery may recover within 1-2 days.
Depending on the condition of the patient, type and degree of cataract, this period may vary. Nowadays cataract surgery can be performed in a short time with the phacoemulsification technique. With this technique, a small incision in the eye is opened to remove the opacified lens and put the artificial intraocular lens instead of it.
If the artificial lens placed in your eye during the operation is single-focused, you will need reading glasses. If you have special ‘multifocal’ intraocular lenses that are for long and short sight, you will not need to wear glasses.
* In some cases, you may need to wear glasses.
• Do not go outside without sunglasses when the sun is very bright in summer.
• Smoking has a negative effect on our eyes, as well as on the other organs, do not smoke.
• Eat plenty of vitamin C, which is reducing the risk of cataract.
• Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, which have a positive effect on your eye health.
Except for special cases, the lens stays in the eye for a lifetime.
Multifocal lenses are slightly more expensive than monofocal lenses because of their advantages.
Private health insurance can pay this operation depending on the agreement. SSK and Bağ-Kur pay for the standard cataract package price.
LASIK treatment is the most applied method of laser treatment in the world. With help of an Excimer Laser beam, which is programmed by the computer according to the dioptres, correct focusing and clear vision are obtained by reshaping the cornea, which is the transparent layer of the eye. For the correction of visual disturbances with Excimer Laser, techniques like PRK, LASEK or LASIK are applied.
The treatment of refractive diseases with Excimer Laser has started with years of knowledge and clinical trials and with approval from the FDA in the United States (the most important institution for Food, Health and Medication Control in the United States) as effective and safe.
