    • FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY IS AVAILABLE IN OUR HOSPITAL ..
      CATARACT is the opacification of the natural lens. Because cataract is the most commonly performed operation in our hospital we have the principle of providing all the recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder. Professor Mahmut Kaskaloglu is one of the most respected eye surgeons in Turkey and he performs all of the cataract operations in our hospital. Professor Kaskaloglu is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, International Society Refractive Surgery, European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. He teaches cataract surgery in courses and live surgery sessions all over Europe and Middle East. 25 years experience and the latest technology at our disposal explain the high success rate in our hospital. After the diagnosis is made the patient is examined by two state of the art systems. ZEISS IOLMASTER calculates the power of the intraocular lens to be implanted and Pentacam measures the corneal surface and thickness so that we can correct any preexisting astigmatism. With the utilization of the lastest technolgy Femtosecond laser many steps of the operation are done by computer controlled instruments making the operation more precise and safer.

      Technically the operation is called “Phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation.”

      On the day of the surgery after being evaluated by the anesthetist, drops are instilled to widen the pupil. Operation is done under topical anesthesia, which means “ONLY DROPS, NO INJECTION”. We use laser and sound wave energy to remove the cataract through a very small incision, which means “NO STITCH”. Average duration of the surgery is less than 10 minutes. The patient can go home after the operation. The intraocular lenses we use are by the top companies so that our patients enjoy excellent vision after the operation
