What is laser eye surgery?


Laser eye surgery, also known as laser vision correction, corrects vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During the procedure, a laser precisely reshapes the cornea, allowing patients to see clearly without glasses.


By adjusting the cornea, the laser helps focus light on the retina at the back of the eye, improving overall vision. This reshaping aims to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.


Different types of laser eye surgeries, including LASIK, PRK, and LASEK, are available. The choice depends on factors like the individual's eye prescription, corneal thickness, and overall eye health.


Laser eye surgery is a popular option for those seeking improved vision and decreased dependence on corrective eyewear.


What can laser eye surgery help with?



Eye surgery might sound a bit scary, but laser eye surgery in Turkey is surprisingly comfortable and safe. The complication rate is impressively low at less than 1%. People opt for laser technology for eye surgery for logical reasons.


Benefits of laser eye surgery in Turkey:


  • Improved vision without the hassle of contact lenses.

  • Scar-free results; this surgery leaves no marks.

  • Long-term outcome; laser eye surgery is a permanent solution.

  • Cost-effective; no more spending on pricey prescriptions, frames, or contacts.


Eye conditions for which laser eye surgery is most commonly performed in Turkey:


  • Nearsightedness (Myopia): Difficulty seeing distant objects clearly.

  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia): Difficulty focusing on close-up objects.

  • Astigmatism: Blurred or distorted vision due to irregular shape of the cornea or lens.

  • Glaucoma: Increased pressure within the eye, leading to optic nerve damage and potential vision loss.


Laser eye surgeries in Turkey


Turkish clinics provide different options for laser eye surgery technologies. Patients can choose a lasting solution from these clinics to correct vision issues without relying on glasses or contact lenses.

After conducting thorough eye tests and examinations, the doctor tailors the treatment to the patient's overall health, age, vision problem, and corneal structure. This personalized approach ensures the most effective outcome. The procedure is typically performed in a specialized eye hospital or center.


Common types of laser eye surgery include:


  • Glaucoma Trabeculektomy

  • SLT

  • LASEK

  • LASIK

  • PRK

  • ECP


Each of these techniques caters to specific vision needs, providing patients with diverse options for achieving optimal results.


Glaucoma Trabeculectomy in Turkey


Trabeculectomy surgery is a top choice for treating glaucoma, especially when eye drops prove ineffective. Laser trabeculectomy is another option to manage intraocular pressure.


Laser trabeculoplasty works by enhancing the absorption of intraocular fluid, reducing pressure through controlled burns in the trabecular network.


For open-angle glaucoma, Trabeculectomy is the go-to surgery. It targets the sclerocorneal junction, the area where the white sclera meets the trabeculum.


This surgery, typically done under local or sometimes general anesthesia, has a long track record. Its known results and complications, plus its high effectiveness, make it a widely used method that can even be combined with cataract surgery.


Glaucoma Trabeculectomy cost in Turkey


The cost of Glaucoma Trabeculectomy eye surgery in Turkey per eye starts from $3230 with our exclusive all-in-one package, available exclusively for A-Medical customers. This comprehensive offer includes hotel accommodation, free translator support, transfer assistance, personalized travel planning, and attentive patient follow-up, including doctor check-ups.


LASIK in Turkey


LASIK eye surgery provides a painless and knife-free solution for high-quality cornea correction, effectively addressing myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.


The procedure ensures a rapid balance in your eye numbers with a minimal chance of reverting to the previous state. Opting for surgery on both eyes poses no risks.


The surgery, completed in a day, allows for quick patient discharge. Those choosing the LASIK technique can resume their daily activities within 24 hours.


As the most common laser vision correction method, LASIK offers a practical solution for myopia and hyperopia issues.

This comprehensive offer includes hotel accommodation, free translator support, transfer assistance, personalized travel planning, and attentive patient follow-up, including doctor check-ups.


LASEK in Turkey


LASEK laser eye surgery is a type of Excimer Laser procedure that doesn't involve removing the thin layer at the front of the cornea. It's commonly used when the corneal structure isn't suitable for LASIK.


Both LASIK and LASEK follow similar procedures, but with LASEK, the thin corneal layer remains untouched. Recovery typically takes about one week. If LASIK isn't suitable due to the person's eye structure, LASEK is the preferred option.

Glaucoma Laser Treatment - SLT in Turkey


SLT, or Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, offers a quick and efficient solution for lowering eye pressure, a key concern in treating open-angle glaucoma. This laser treatment, performed in-office by an ophthalmologist, provides a practical alternative to both medications and surgery.


In just a short session, SLT can decrease intraocular pressure by 25-30% for most patients.


Unlike drug treatments or surgeries, SLT is convenient for patients and can be repeated as needed, making it a straightforward choice in managing eye pressure.

PRK in Turkey


PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a laser method to correct refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism without creating a corneal flap.


PRK is chosen by those who prefer a scar-free option. Since there's no removal of a corneal flap, the procedure leaves no scars and preserves the natural structure of the cornea.


PRK laser surgery is painless. Without using a vacuum during the operation, and with stable eye pressure, patients experience no discomfort.


After PRK, a follow-up check occurs between the 3rd and 6th days, with a speedy recovery of just three days before patients can resume normal activities.


PRK cost in Turkey


The cost of PRK eye surgery in Turkey per eye starts from $1900 with our exclusive all-in-one package, available exclusively for A-Medical customers. This comprehensive offer includes hotel accommodation, free translator support, transfer assistance, personalized travel planning, and attentive patient follow-up, including doctor check-ups.


ECP in Turkey


Endoscopic Cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) offers an effective option for mild-to-moderate glaucoma patients using multiple medications or not responding well to filtration surgery.


ECP can be done alone but is now commonly combined with cataract surgery.


In glaucoma, blocked channels cause fluid to accumulate in the eye, raising eye pressure. ECP, using laser therapy, reduces fluid production by targeting and partially destroying the tissues responsible for fluid production (ciliary body). This helps lower eye pressure, providing relief.


ECP cost in Turkey


The cost of ECP eye surgery in Turkey per eye starts from $1500 with our exclusive all-in-one package, available exclusively for A-Medical customers. This comprehensive offer includes hotel accommodation, free translator support, transfer assistance, personalized travel planning, and attentive patient follow-up, including doctor check-ups.

Remove corneal epithelium, laser reshape the cornea, place a protective contact lens

Longer initial recovery, vision improvement may take days to weeks

Thin corneas, corneal instability

ECP (Endoscopic Cyclophotocoagulation)

Treat glaucoma, reduce intraocular pressure

Insert endoscope to visualize and treat the ciliary body with laser energy

Generally faster recovery than traditional glaucoma surgeries

Glaucoma patients, refractory cases
