LASIK Eye Surgery in Antalya

Compare 3 clinics

LASIK or Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis is a modern laser eye surgery technique that quickly became popular due to its high patient satisfaction rates which are usually between 92% and 98%.

LASIK is used in ophthalmological centres all around the world to treat patients that suffer from short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatism. The excimer laser used in LASIK eye surgery is the pinnacle of laser eye technology and this is also clearly seen in the results.

LASIK Eye Surgery Candidates

Patients suffering from myopia or short-sightedness can benefit greatly from LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is also a solution for patients that suffer from hyperopia and astigmatism.

Am I Suitable for LASIK Eye Surgery?

A few factors influence the eligibility for LASIK eye surgery. If you fall into the following categories, you may not have LASIK surgery:

● Under 21
● Pregnant
● Suffering from diabetes
● Have other eye problems such as cataract or glaucoma
● Born with a thinner cornea or a larger diameter pupil

Before You Leave for LASIK Eye Surgery

Before you leave for LASIK eye surgery, it’s a good idea to inform your eye doctor about your travel and the procedure you plan on having. Your ophthalmologist may also give you a quick check-up before you leave and also offer some advice.

Preparing for LASIK Eye Surgery

It’s recommended that you stop wearing contact lenses and makeup at least a few days before going in for LASIK. Contact lenses may damage the cornea and makeup may interfere with the LASIK procedure.

How is LASIK Eye Surgery Performed?

You’ll first have a very detailed eye examination. Your doctor will numb your eyes through the use of an anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. The data obtained from the eye examination is fed into the LASIK system and your LASIK technician will decide on an incision point. Once the incision point is decided, it is marked with an ink marker and a flap is created over the surface of the eye. After that, the excimer laser is used in order to shape the cornea according to the type of refractive error the patient suffers from. You will be asked to look at a certain spot or target but the excimer laser is used for less than a minute. Once the laser part is over, the eye outer membrane or flap returns to its initial position.

After that, your vision may improve drastically in the first few hours after surgery, or it may improve steadily during the first weeks after surgery.

LASEK is a procedure very similar to LASIK and both of them use the same precise excimer laser. The only difference is that with LASEK the cornea outer membrane is fully removed during surgery and then placed back once the procedure is over.

LASIK Eye Surgery Recovery

The recovery period lasts around 2-3 weeks. During this period you should avoid powerful light sources such as the sun or desk lamps. You should also be careful and follow the doctor’s recommendations thoroughly. You will need to keep your eyes hydrated and to refrain from rubbing your eyes during this period. Other recommendations include:

● Not wearing makeup during the recovery period
● No contact sports allowed
● Swimming is not allowed – tiny microorganisms from the sea or ocean may damage your cornea

LASIK Eye Surgery Risks and Complications

Although there are no known long term side effects of LASIK surgery, a few small risks exist. Patients that decide to have LASIK laser eye surgery must be careful and follow the doctor’s recommendation thoroughly in order to avoid potential:

● Eye infection – during the recovery period it’s recommended not to swim in the sea or ocean. If you do get an eye infection, it can be easily treated with antibiotics.

● Corneal membrane wrinkles – if you rub your eyes, squeeze or practice contact sports you may end up with a wrinkled corneal membrane which in turn leads to decreased vision.

● Ectasia – it usually appears in 1 in 15.000 patients after LASIK surgery.

LASIK Eye Surgery Success Rates

LASIK is one of the most common laser eye surgeries used to correct refractive errors. Post-operatory success rates range from 92% to 98%. This is the reason why LASIK gained so much popularity in recent years.

Before and After LASIK Eye Surgery

It’s very important to mention that there are no known long term side effects from LASIK surgery. It’s also worthy to mention the fact that LASIK does not guarantee perfect vision, although many patients do obtain it after a few weeks from surgery.
