OPTHALMOLOGY

OPTHALMOLOGY

At our eye disease clinic, the first step is always for the doctor to listen to the patient’s complaints. According to these complaints, the doctor conducts a routine eye exa- mination, including observation of the external appearan- ce of eyebrows, eyelids, and eye positioning. Using the auto refractometer and retinoscope devices, our doctors then measure the patient’s refractive error. During the slit lamp examination, the eyelashes, conjunctiva, cornea and other anterior eye segment elements of reputation are carefully examined. Finally, the eye’s blood pressure is measured.

REFRACTIVE

Images of objects and light become a point of vision on the retina by breaking through a transparent lens layer of the eye, called the cornea. In the normal eye, sharp images are seen due to the reflection of external light rays on the cornea and lens, straight down the vision center.

The most important symptoms of refractive error are visual disturbances, eye pain and illness. The names of refractive disorders are: nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), horizontal or vertical eye breaker differences (astigmatism) and sightedness due to age-related disorders (presbyopia.)

TREATMENT OF GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma occurs as a result of elevated intraocular pres- sure, which is eventuated from congested channels that drain intraocular fluid. High eye pressure damages and chills the optic nerve. Glaucoma is a disease that does not have any symptoms, but progresses insidiously and can cause sudden blindness. Regular medical examination is the best way to detect and protect against glaucoma.

PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY

An easy way to monitor and control children’s eyes is by using pediatric auto refractometer. All that this procedu- re requires is a quick look into a disk of light just meters away. It is important and necessary to do routine eye examinations of newborns and children ages one to three, especially for those children who come from a family with known eye disorders.

STRABISMUS

Strabismus disease is the deterioration of the parallel status of the eye when looking at a single point. The causes of strabismus are: failure to use glasses when needed, abnormality in the muscles that move the eye, congenital and neurological problems.

Slip patterns:
Inward shift (esotropia)
Outward shift (eksotropia)
Sliding Down (hipotropya)
Slip up (hipotropya)

Strabismus treatment aims to increase sight, correct double vision, control provisions of eye movement, and remove aesthetic complaints. Strabismus is treated by surgical methods.

WHAT IS RETINA?

Retina is a light sensitive layer that lines the interior of the eye. It is composed of light sensitive cells known as rods and cones. The human eye contains about 125 million rods, which are necessary for seeing in dim light. Cones, on the other hand, function best in bright light - there are between 6 and 7 million in the eye. Cones are essential for perceiving sharp, accurate images and they can also distinguish colors. The retina works much in the same way as film in a camera.


WHAT IS CATARACT?

Cataracts are a disorder of the eye, characterized by loss of transparency, blurring and gray coloring of the lens. Once the lens becomes blurred, the visual quality of the eye deteriorates due to the blockage of light penetration.

Cataracts are a disorder of the eye, characterized by loss of transparency, blurring and gray coloring of the lens. Once the lens becomes blurred, the visual quality of the eye deteriorates due to the blockage of light penetration. The senile cataract is the commonest form of cataracts. However, in some cases, intra-uterine infections may result in congenital cataracts in infants. Though not a constant rule, cataracts typically appear gradually and progressively.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CATARACT?

Patients with cataracts suffer from blurry vision, double vision, darkness and color imperceptions.

WHEN SHOULD CATARACT OPERATION BE UNDERGONE?

Cataract surgery is suggested when the conditions of visual disorder hinder the daily life of the patient. If catara- cts are discovered in infants and babies, surgery should be completed as soon as possible to avoid disturbance in vision.

THE PROCEDURE OF CATARACT SURGERY

First, the eye is locally anesthetized with drops. Next, the lens containing the cataract is split into pieces by ultrasound power and then these pieces are removed using special probes 1 mm in size. This method is called ‘phacoemulsification’. The next step in the procedure is the inserting of artificial intraocular lens implants. There is no need to use stitches because the entire procedure is done through very small incisions on cornea. The quality of the lens, which is implanted within the eye, is vital, thus, our medical facility use only the best FDA approved intraocular materials.

EXCIMER LASER-LASIK

The contemporary treatment for refraction disorders, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, is LASIK. This operation is performed in three steps, ‘flap creation’, ‘laser remodeling’, and ‘repositioning of flap’. The main content of the operation is to remodel the corneal stroma. The laser vaporizes tissue in a finely controlled manner without damaging the adjacent stroma. Performing the laser ablations on the deeper corneal stroma typically provides rapid visual recovery and less pain.



OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY

The oculoplastic branch of surgery aims to treat the inward or outward rotation of the eyelid, wrinkles around the eyes, elimination of the lower lid bags, correction of tear duct obstruction, prosthetic eyes, and treatment of eye tumors.

CHILDREN'S EYE HEALTH AND ITS IMPORTANCE

Our children are our future, precious and valuable. The most valuable gift that can be given to them is a healthy life. However, due to negligence arising from the lack of knowledge regarding their eyes, our children may encounter eye diseases that are becoming more and more difficult to treat. There is no age limitation for an eye examination. Any abnormalities of the eyes should be examined regardless of one’s age.

Some children may refuse to be examined, in which case an anesthesia can be used to tranquilize the child. Even though children may not have any complaints, they should still undergo at least one eye examination between the ages 1 and 2. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for a child’s eye health, otherwise, they may be forever condemned to sight impairment in addition to aesthetic problems. The ideal age for the first eye exami- nation for a child is at age 2, even when the child has no complaints. It is of critical importance that children who attend school undergo an eye examination at least once a year.
