Testimonials

Our in vitro treatment in Istanbul in July, 2011.

I had four surgeries (fallopian tube pregnancy). After this, we decided in vitro fertilization treatment.  However, we couldn’t achieve a successful result in Switzerland. I had six in vitro treatments and they all became unsuccessful.  One day in May 2011, my husband made a web search and he found MedicalTravel for IFV treatment in Turkey. There was a seminar in Zurich on another day and there we met MedicalTravel and we contacted it. Then, we decided to have an in vitro treatment in Turkey. MedicalTravel organized everything for us, including the flight, welcoming service etc. We flew to Turkey and now we are very happy.  Acıbadem was a very good hospital, it was very clean, hygienic and its staff was very sincere and cheerful. Treatment lasted for about 10 or 12 days, and the operation had no problem. My surgery was on 17.07.11 and then the successful transfer took place on 22.07.11. Then we went to Switzerland. The only thing we were supposed to do here was to have our blood tested by our family doctor. I received the good news on the same day, the result was positive! We were very happy after several trials. We found the happiness in Turkey. The result was a success and our dream came true. I recommend this experience to anyone. Your happiness awaits somewhere; we’ve found ours in Turkey!

Refractive surgery

 

The target of refractive surgery is to correct sight deficiencies via operative methods.


This area in ophthalmology is a field of expertise in helping those with sight deficiencies and experiencing problems with their eyeglasses or lenses.


Thanks to a surgical interference on the cornea or lenses, it aims at correcting the sight deficiencies in a way to reflect light beams and images accurately and clearly on the retina without the support of additional visual aids.

 

Overview at all operations

Innovative methods of refractive surgery that have been being applied for years, brought up new opportunities in ophthalmology

Operations are generally divided into two as lens procedures and cornea procedures

Cornea applications (Excimer laser method)

The word ‘excimer’ derives from the term “excited dimer” in English; that is cell manipulation via cold beam laser. In medicine, laser is used for different areas.

Since the beginning of 80s, Excimer-Laser has been used in eye surgeries. Excimer laser is applied for myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatic treatments and reduces the period of treatment to the minimum.

There are three different methods applied with Excimer Laser

  1. LASIK = situ keratomileusis laser (Standard/ Femto/ Supracor)
  2. LASEK = Laser (Sub) epithelial keratectomy
  3. PRK =  photo refractive keratectomy

Lens operation
Surgical operation with lenses is preferred for very high breaking mistakes where a complete correction on cornea is especially not possible via eye laser. This method is also used in presbyopia corrections.

There has been an experience on implanting lenses for almost 50 years. The first artificial lens was used to correct sight deficiency in 1950s.
