Types of Eye Laser Surgery in Turkey: Femto-Lasik and ReLEx Smile
As medical technology progresses, different methods have been developed in eye laser surgeries, which can be considered as one of the most important discoveries of modern medicine. By these methods, the vision disorders are corrected and efforts have been made to improve the comfort of the patients, optimize the recovery process, improve the vision and shorten the duration of the procedure. While aiming all these, minimizing the interventions by hand and reducing the invasive were also possible thanks to the developing technology.
Eye laser surgeries performed in Turkey for many years have enabled doctors to specialize in this field and facilitated the application of current technologies. Today, ReLEx Smile and Femto-Lasik methods are among the most widely used eye laser surgery techniques in Turkey.
ReLEx Smile in Turkey
The ReLEx Smile method represents the most modern technology of today’s laser eye surgery. The result of the Femto-Lasik procedure is clearly similar to the ReLEx-Smile method, but ReLEx SMILE has some advantages over the Femto-Lasik method.
Unlike Femto-Lasik, instead of opening a large flap on the cornea, the procedure can be performed by making an incision of only 2-3 mm in length. This process makes the ReLEx Smile method less invasive and therefore carries less risk.
With the VisuMax laser, thin corneal lens is first created (lenticule) in the intact cornea. Then, depending on the structure of the patient’s cornea, access is provided with the help of this incision of approximately 3 mm. The lenticule is then removed through this incision. This process minimally affects the biomechanics of the cornea as significantly fewer nerve fibers are irritated.
Removal of the lenticule regulates the refraction of light due to the change of the cornea, thereby increasing vision. This method is a new procedure that is not offered in every eye laser center. In short, the advantages of the ReLEx Smile method can be listed as follows;
- No large flap is created in the cornea
- Only a short recovery period is achieved thanks to a minimal incision
- No dry-eyes is expected after the operation
Femto-Lasik in Turkey
Mechanical tools are not used in the Femto-Lasik method. For the operation, an incision must be made in the uppermost corneal layer, which creates a “flap” that can be opened later. In the Femto-Lasik method, this incision is made with a laser, which means that significantly stronger visual impairments can also be corrected.
After the “flap” is folded to the side, poor vision improves with just a few seconds of operation for both eyes. Here, defects in the cornea are corrected by laser so that the refraction of light is precisely adjusted to the retina. The “flap” is then closed again and allowed to heal on its own. The healing process takes about three weeks.
Femto-Lasik optimized for Wavefront
The Wavefront method helps improve vision in poor light conditions such as darkness or glare. For this, the refractive errors of the patient are analyzed. It creates a kind of an eye map showing all the refractive errors for more precise modeling of the cornea and the treatment is then carried out.
How is the Femto-Lasik and ReLEx Smile Process in Turkey?
According to your visual impairment, corneal thickness, age and eye numbers; our partner specialist decides whether you are suitable for the operation or which operation you are suitable for.
Before the operation, a number of sensitive eye examinations are performed and the necessary information is evaluated by the doctor. The procedure is performed with special devices in a sterile operating room, and the operation itself takes about 15-20 minutes.
After the procedure, you will be asked to use some prescription eye drops and protective glasses. The next inspection is done the next day of the procedure and the process is completed in this way.
