- Welcome to Our Eye Health Center and its Surgical and Cosmetic Operations
Bionic eye is a very small photo-sensitive device that is implanted into the retinal or the visual cortex of the brain , able to converse light to electrical impulses that stimulate retina and optic neural pathway to create a preliminary image to patients who had completely lost their vision , so that they can have some sense about the environment and live without the help of anybody.
Femtosecond Laser operation ( or femtolasik ) is a simple and short intervention that utilizes supreme technology by which the operation can be performed in a very sensitive , safe and precise way
Strabismus ( or Squint) is the case where both eyes are not focusing on the same object at the same time. So, both eyes are not in a straight position.
To be sure that eye is proper to laser operation there should be 2 factors: The first is the glasses number of the eye should be suitable (myopia between -1.0 to –10.0 , hyperopia +1.0 to +5.0 , and astigmatism+/-1.0 to +/- 5.0).
The second factor is the structure of the eye -especially cornea – should be proper, regarding topography, shape and thickness of the cornea, without having any eye disease that may effect laser outcome, like cataract, glaucoma and retinal diseases.
So.. a detail test including corneal topography and thickness (pentacam test) should be performed before laser operation.
To decrease the possibility of the regression of the refractive problem after laser operation to the minimal level , we should prefer to perform the latest laser technology which is Intralasik (Femtolasik).
In cases of hyperopia and astigmatism the possibility of some regression is higher after lasik. Whereas if we perform Femtolasik, possibility of regression is almost absent.
Patient will not need any kind of general or local anesthesia. Drops are enough for complete anesthesia of the eye so that patient will not have any pain . Anyhow, the operation will not last for more than 10 minutes.
If the eye’s refractive number, and structure are suitable, and if we execute the latest Femtolasik laser technology, the side effect possibility will be less than 1/1000 . So tests before laser operation are very important.
All laser operations of all techniques are not handicap for any future eye operation, like cataract (that mostly occurs elderly) , glaucoma or even retinal surgeries .
Actually, what most people call excimer laser (not lasik of femtolasik) is the PRK laser operation, in which laser is applied superficially onto the cornea without lifting a corneal layer (flap). But this will create some pain and bothering that may last for 3 days. This is the oldest laser technique and it is mostly now not preferred because of the pain and the haze that may be created.
To get rid of such problems, lasik and Intralasik techniques had been developed, in which a corneal flap is lifted up and then laser rays are applied beneath it. So, patient can return to normal life directly in the next day.
In lasik operation the corneal flap is lifted up by a special knife which is inserted inside a machine called microkeratome. However, in femtolasik the corneal flap is lifted up by the femto laser which can control very precisely the thickness and shape of the lifted corneal flap. That’s why femtolasik is more precise, safer and much better than lasik.
In lasik and femtolasik operations nothing is put inside the eye during the opertation. However, in PRK operation a contact lens is put to protect the eye and decrease the pain for 3-4 days.
Our Patients Says ….
My view in the TV screen is very important for me as a TV host , and I don't like the glasses reflections in front of the camera. So I put in mind getting rid of my glasses, and I went to the doctor who I trust, Dr. Muhammed. He applied the latest laser technology to my eyes before many years, and since then, I feel more confident in front of cameras. Really, I advise everyone who wear glasses not to hesitate about laser treatment. Nizar Al-Hirbawy, TV Presenter & well known TV host
I have used both distance and nearness glasses for too many years, and I am fed up with them. I came to Dr. Muhammed who had performed laser treatment for my eyes before many years. And since then I don't need the glasses any more. Resul Tosun, Member in Turkish Parliament & Famous author in Turkish journals
I am a practising doctor, I know very well the seriousity of having an eye operation. But my glasses used to be an overload for me, that's why I was always thinking of throwing them out. When I came to Dr. Muhammed I trusted him and decided to undergo the laser. And now, it has been many years for living free without glasses. Dr. Muhammed Amin, Family doctor & Chairman of Association of Palestinian doctors in Turkey
As a news reporter, I had faced many difficulties regarding putting on my glasses. I was always hesitated about doing the laser operation to my eyes. But now after many years of having undergone lasik operation by Dr. Muhammed, I am still happy and very satisfied. Amer Lafi, Reporter at Aljazeera TV channel in Turkey
