Stating that Excimer laser treatment, also known as eye drawing surgery, has been used safely around the world for over 30 years, ophthalmology specialist Op. Dr Yalçın İşcan said that I am experiencing the priceless happiness and honor to bring this treatment to the city where I was born and raised to the same standards as the best clinics in the world, with the latest technological devices, and to have performed one. of my biggest dreams.
Dr İşcan made statements about the Excimer laser, which is applied in the permanent treatment of refractive errors called myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Stating that the laser beam removes the targeted tissue with the thickness and width desired in the treatment, a permanent change is created in the stratum corneum located at the outermost part of the eye, and the treatment of myopia, of farsightedness or astigmatism is achieved, İşcan said: “Have over 18 years to apply this treatment, have the number of glasses in the past year. It must be unchanged and the structural properties of the corneal layer must be adapted to the laser. For this, in addition to the routine eye exam, a corneal tomography is ordered and the surgery can be applied to the appropriate people. Today, with Excimer laser photo-ablation, myopia up to 8 degrees, hyperopia and astigmatism up to 5 degrees can be treated. At the end of this treatment, it is possible to get rid of the glasses for good.
How many ways can the request be made?
Like two methods. We perform these two methods, both the Notouch and Lasik method, in our clinic with the latest standards. In both methods, there is no pain during the operation.
How long is the treatment?
Depending on the device used, the laser is applied for a period of 20 seconds to 1 minute, the patient’s stay in the laser room is 5 to 10 minutes in total.
What are the advantages of the device applied?
I can say that the device we are using is the fastest and most reliable device in the world, it can reset even the largest numbers in a maximum of 20 seconds. With Contoura laser technology; It measures flaw maps at 22,000 different points on your eye and lasers according to that eye map and delivers more than what you see with glasses i.e. provides a clearer image than the clearest image you can see with glasses. Just as your fingerprint is unique to you, your treatment must also be unique to you!
It also has a multidimensional eye tracker that can track the smallest movements of the eye and make hundreds of small adjustments every second.
If at any time the eye goes out of range or moves too fast, the laser will wait for the eye to return to its place and resume without any deviation. In this way, it increases the sensitivity of the Lasik and No-touch treatment making sure that each laser pulse hits the right place.
How long is the recovery period after application?
In this method, a thin part of the cornea which we call the flap is removed like a cover and then the flap is placed in its place by applying treatment. After surgery, slight burning and tingling sensations occur for the first 4-6 hours, then vision is restored and complaints are significantly reduced. Those who have LASIK treatment can return to work the day after surgery.
To whom can the non-contact laser method not be applied?
The Notouch laser can be applied to myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism with appropriate eye structure.
How is the non-contact laser application done?
The No Touch Laser application is performed under drop anesthesia. The beams emanating from the laser device are applied directly to the eye.
What is the healing process after a non-contact laser procedure?
Usually the eyes do not need to be closed after the procedure, the patient can go home with both eyes open. Usually, the burning and stinging occurs within the first 2-3 days, and the complaints should go away on the 4th day. It aims to make this process more comfortable with the medications to be prescribed to the patient.
When does the vision after Notouch become clear?
Blurring can occur until the 4th day after Notouch Laser. Usually from the 5th day the clarity begins to increase and routine tasks such as computer and driving can be performed. Visual clarity gradually increases up to 21 days.
What are the points to consider after application?
Op.Dr. Yalçın İŞCAN drew attention to the regular use of prescribed eye drops after the procedure. Care should be taken to protect the eyes from UV rays as much as possible, and care should be taken to use sunglasses when daylight is strong. The eyes should not be touched with water for 4 days and the vehicle should not be driven immediately after application. In addition, the Notouch laser does not prevent other eye operations such as cataracts which can develop in old age.
