Once you have decided to undergo strabismus surgery, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and that your procedure will be customized in a way that minimizes scarring. During the online consultations, expect the following questions:
When you decide to have a pterygium surgery, our first step will be to present to you several detailed options of clinics and doctors. After you have chosen your preferred clinic and doctor, we will then set up an operation date and arrange your trip. All the dates are set according to your preferences!
This surgery is usually performed in the morning or afternoon, so we always recommend that you arrive in Turkey a day before the surgery –so that you can have enough time to rest.
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your strabismus surgery. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals.
Before the surgery commences, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in a good health state. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests so as to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery.
To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, your surgeon will give you local anesthesia. If you have Trypanophobia (fear of needles), you should let us know so that we can offer you doctors who can give you anesthesia without using needles.
Can I wear make-up on the day of the operation?
No. You should appear without makeup and bring dark sunglasses.
Can I smoke before the operation?
Limit smoking if possible. Smoking leads to increased bleeding during the operation and, as a consequence, to bruising and poorer wound healing.
Is a hospital stay necessary?
The doctor will specifically discuss this question with you during your first consultation.
Will I experience pain during surgery?
No. The operation will be painless for you. This applies to both general anesthesia and local anesthesia.
After the surgery, what can I do to make my eyelids swell as little as possible?
In the first 48 hours, as much as possible should be cooled by means of a cooling face mask. This is delivered to the patient after each operation.
Our team will dedicate their effort and time to help you choose the clinic best for you. Our goal is not just to find ‘a doctor’ for you, but to find ‘the right doctor’.
