Eye Diseases (Opthalmology)

The Yeditepe University Hospital Eye Department offers treatment for a wide range of eye conditions
including cataract surgery, refractive surgery, keratoconus and esthetic
surgery around the eye.

The goal of refractive surgery is to reduce dependency on glasses or contact lenses by reshaping the
cornea. Light passes through the lens and cornea and is focused onto the
retina, a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye. If light does not hit
the retina properly, your vision is blurry and you have a refractive error.
Depending on the degree of your refractive error and the physical attributes of
your eyes, Yeditepe University Hospital physicians will recommend a specific
procedure that will give you the best correction possible.

The Yeditepe University Hospital Eye Department uses the most advanced excimer lasers to reshape
curvature of the cornea and reduce or cure common vision disorders such as
myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, as well as some degenerative disorders.

The Department offers treatments using different kinds of laser and intraocular lenses to treat
patients whose condition is not amenable to regular laser assisted methods.


The vertebrate retina is a light-sensitive layer of
tissue lining the inner surface of the eye that is essential for vision. Retina
problems can lead to diseases that affect vision, or even cause loss of sight,
and should be treated as a matter of urgency. Individual patients may require
medical, laser or surgical intervention depending on the type and severity of
their condition.

Vitreoretinal disease may be the result of trauma, or
have occurred naturally. These kinds of conditions require surgical treatment.
The Yeditepe University Hospital Eye Department offers surgical treatment
conducted by highly trained and experienced vascular surgeons and physicians
for retinal tearing and detachment, eye trauma and macular diseases.

Some diseases such as age-related macular degeneration
(also known as yellow spot disease), diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein
occlusion and Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) do not require conventional
surgery but can be treated with laser or needle treatment that is offered at
the Yeditepe University Hospital Eye Department using the most advanced
equipment and techniques.


Glaucoma is a condition in which an increase in the
pressure within the eye causes damage to the optic nerve. It is an
asymptomatic, “stealthy” disease that can only be detected through analysis of
measurements taken during regular eye examinations.

If it is not detected and treated in time, it can lead to
loss of vision and even blindness.

Whatever their symptoms, the eye pressure of all Yeditepe
University Hospital patients is determined through detailed measurement. This
is a precautionary step that allows timely intervention.

Yeditepe University Hospital Glaucoma Center operates as
part of our Eye Department Services offering comprehensive glaucoma care and
second opinion consultations for all forms of glaucoma. We often provide
evaluations of diagnosis or treatment options to patients when these are
requested by their eye physicians or when patients desire our opinion

We care for infants and children, adults, and all forms
of glaucoma, whether primary or related to complex eye problems. Medical
treatment, laser therapies, and surgical procedures for glaucoma are available.

Our Center closely follows all developments in terms of
new methods to improve glaucoma care, including stem cell research, gene
therapy, preventive programs for glaucoma worldwide, improved diagnostic
imaging, and methods to make glaucoma surgery safer.

Refractive surgery

Refractive eye surgery is used to improve the refractive
state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses or contact
lenses. The Yeditepe University Hospital Eye Department uses the most advanced
excimer lasers to reshape curvature of the cornea and reduce or cure common
vision disorders such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, as well as some
degenerative disorders. The Department offers treatments using different kinds
of laser and intraocular lenses to treat patients whose condition is not
amenable to regular laser assisted methods.

Blade-free Eye Solutions 

There has been a great expansion in the range of laser
eye surgery in recent years. At first, laser treatment was only used to correct
shortsightedness (myopia,) but these days it successfully treats a multiplicity
of conditions including farsightedness (hypermetropia), near sightedness,
disease- or trauma-related cornea surface irregularities, corneal staining, as
well as being used in corneal transplantation and the correction of
post-transplantation defects.

Personalized Treatment

The patient’s specific requirements are determined using
advanced equipment; there is no such thing as a ‘standard treatment.’ Surgical
treatment is tailored according to the particular needs of the individual
person. Only clinics that prioritize patient benefits with specialized doctors
trained in the application of the latest technology can get the best results.
With its institutional structure, laser systems and its team of experienced
specialists, Yeditepe University Hospital fits the bill.

Laser Technologies

Excimer Laser technology is the most widespread method of
refractive surgery for treating myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia
(farsightedness) and astigmatism, worldwide. Who Are Candidates for Laser Treatment? 

People over the age of 18 who use glasses or contact lenses.

Those whose eyesight has not varied more than +/- 0.5
diopters over the previous year.

Those with a degree of myopia of up to -10 degrees

Those with a degree of astigmatism of up to -6 degrees

Those with a degree of hyperopia of up to -5 degrees

Those whose cornea is of sufficient thickness and of the appropriate structure

Those not suffering from systemic diseases such as diabetes or rheumatism

Those without any other eye disease (keratoconus, glaucoma etc.)

Laser treatment may be carried out only after a thorough
examination and providing the patient’s eye structure is suitable for surgery.

Women who are not pregnant.

Preliminary Steps for Laser Treatment

Candidates for laser treatment at Yeditepe University
Hospital undergo a detailed eye examination (with and without drops) and other
tests, in order to determine their suitability for surgery. Following this,
their degree of suitability is established and the most appropriate laser
method is recommended
