Eye Care & Surgery

Contrary to many organs in our body, some anatomical structures of the eye such as the pupil, conjunctiva, iris, tear, and eyelid can be controlled by external examination. Some of these structures (tears, eyelid movements, intact epithelial tissue, etc.) have a protective role for the eye. You can rely on RECMED expertise for your eye health.

Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)

Amblyopia means that one eye sees less than the other eye. Its cause is an anomaly that usually occurs in the visual function of the eye during childhood. The weak eye may shift to the right or left.

Rarely, it can occur in both eyes. It can often be corrected with treatment with glasses, contact lenses, and one eye closure.

Cataract Treatment

A cataract is the loss of transparency of the lens in the eye. Our intraocular lens is located in our pupils and must be transparent from birth.

This lens begins to lose its transparency most often from the age of 60. Unfortunately, cataract treatment without surgery is not possible. Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in medical sciences and the success rate is 97%.

Excimer Laser

Laser therapy allows the person to eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. It is often used for the treatment of refractive errors in the eye (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia).

It has been a recently chosen treatment method thanks to its short duration of operation, immediate results after surgery, and short recovery period.

Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)

Retinopathy of prematurity is one of the most important health problems seen in the eyes of premature babies. The veins in babies’ eyes develop until the baby is born.

Since this development is not completed in preterm babies, it continues after birth. Oxygen given in high concentrations to keep premature babies alive can cause abnormal development of the vessels in the eye.

If not treated early, it can cause blindness in both eyes. For this reason, preterm babies should be checked by an ophthalmologist. As a result, retinopathy of prematurity disease occurs in the retinas of infants with incomplete vascularization.

Smart Lens

The smart lens works by refracting light entering the eye from close, medium, and far distances and focusing this light on a single focal point on the retina.

This enables simultaneous focusing on near, intermediate, and far objects with a single lens. These modern and smart lens types can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Strabismus

In healthy people, both eyes work in parallel and harmony. The deterioration of this parallelism between the eyes due to various reasons is called strabismus.

In squinted people, one eye looks straight while the other eye moves up, down, inward, or outward. In more severe cases, strabismus may be seen in both eyes. Depending on the cause of strabismus, these shifts may be temporary or permanent.

Uveitis

Uveitis is inflammation of the middle layer of the eye. The uvea consists of the iris, choroid, and ciliary body.

Uveitis is the third most common disease in developed countries that can lead to permanent vision loss. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important to prevent complications related to uveitis.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that damages the optic nerve of your eye and gets worse over time. Glaucoma is usually related to increased pressure inside your eye.

The increased intraocular pressure can damage the optic nerves that transmit images to your brain. Glaucoma can cause permanent blindness within a few years if left untreated. Glaucoma may be inherited and may not appear until old age. Most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes. It is caused by damage to the photosensitive tissue and blood vessels at the back of the eye (retina).

Another feature of diabetic retinopathy is that it can cause new blood vessels to form on the retinal surface. These new veins bleed easily. If undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause blindness.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus disease is the thinning and anterior bulging of the cornea, which is the transparent layer in the front of the eye.

Forward cambering of the cornea can lead to decreased vision in patients and a decrease in vision that cannot be treated with glasses. It is a disease that usually affects both eyes. However, one eye may be more affected than the other.
