THE PLACE OF LASER TREATMENTS IN VISUAL DISORDERS
Visual disorders are among the health problems that make life the most difficult and disturbing. The number of people who have to wear glasses or contact lenses for a healthy vision is quite high. However, it is obvious that these products are solutions that negatively affect the quality of life.
Today, with the development of medical technology, laser eye treatments make it possible to treat visual disorders, making the use of glasses and contact lenses no longer a necessity.
Laser eye treatments are successfully used in the treatment of different degrees of near-distance vision impairment and astigmatism, as well as in solving the problems of the transparent layer of the eye.
Laser treatments are very simple and can be applied without the need for a surgical intervention. The solutions it brings continue for life and are permanent. It provides physiological and psychological relief for the patient.
FOR WHICH EYE DISORDERS LASER TREATMENT IS APPLIED
It is when the person sees close objects very clearly but distant objects are blurred. Myopia is essentially a refraction-related disorder and occurs when the light coming from outside is focused on the front part of the eye, not directly on the retina.
Myopic headache, tiredness and sometimes strabismus may show symptoms. Myopia causes people to squint their eyes.
Myopia can be treated with an excimer laser device up to 12 degrees. Smart lenses are recommended for patients who are not suitable for laser therapy.
Contrary to myopia, farsightedness is when distant objects are clearly seen and the vision becomes blurred as objects get closer.
People with hypermetropia get tired quickly because the eye constantly tries to focus while reading something. Burning, stinging sensation and headache are seen in the tired eye. Hyperopia in children and babies can cause strabismus if not treated.
Hyperopia can be treated with excimer laser application. Intraocular lens (smart lens) application is recommended for patients who are not suitable for high-grade and laser treatment.
Astigmatism is a vision problem caused by the congenital deformity of the transparent layer in the front of the eye.
Astigmatism symptoms are blurred and double vision. It is a problem with refraction of light, as in hyperopia and myopia. In astigmatism, the light falls on more than one point and the cornea refracts the light with a different strength. The person sees objects blurry and broken.
It is generally a genetic disorder. Especially when reading, it shows symptoms such as overlapping of letters, deterioration of visual clarity as distance increases, eyes get tired quickly and distraction.
Laser treatments are the most commonly used method in astigmatism treatment. Intraocular lens application is recommended for patients who are not suitable for laser treatments.
What is ReLEx Smile Laser?
Smile Laser is the top version of the bladeless laser applications developed in 2000s. While a large incision is required in the application in LASIK, this incision is also at a very low level with the SMILE Laser.
Very good results can be obtained especially in high grade myopia. All stages of the Relex Laser treatment are completed in a single laser and without a blade. In this way, a safer treatment, reduction in burning and stinging complaints, rapid recovery and less dry eye problems are seen.
Who are ReLEx Smile Laser Candidates?
Since SMILE Laser treatment does not require flap cutting, complications that may occur after flap creation are prevented. For this reason, SMILE laser treatments are mostly recommended for people who live an active life and active athletes who have the risk of accidentally dislodging the flap.
Who Can ReLEx Smile Smile Laser be Applied?
Patients 18 years of age or older

Patients under 18 years of age
Patients with unsuitable corneal health

How is ReLEx Smile Laser applied?
First of all, after a detailed eye examination and examinations, it is decided whether the eye structure is suitable for the SMILE technique. There is a 27-second laser application process in the operation. During this time, the part created in the cornea is removed only through a 2mm incision. A vacuum ring is placed in the eye to prevent you from moving your eyes during the surgery. Postoperative sensitivity, watering, and drugs to prevent light shine are given.
What are the Benefits of ReLEx Smile Laser?
No complications are expected since there is no need to make an incision to create a flap in the cornea.
Situations such as folding or not fitting the flap do not occur.
There is no risk of valve displacement due to trauma on the eye in the future.
Dry eyes are minimal.
It can be applied up to 10 degrees in myopia and up to 5 degrees in astigmatism and provides the closest to nature with a high visual quality.
Excimer Laser technology, which has been used safely for more than 30 years all over the world, is used in the treatment of diseases such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, which are related to refractive errors in the eye. The cornea layer is reshaped by using a computer-adjusted laser beam according to the degree of visual impairment. Refraction problem is resolved and correct focus is achieved. In this way, the person can get rid of glasses or lenses in a few minutes. Clear vision is provided throughout life.
Excimer Laser Types
Excimer laser treatment is applied to the stroma layer under the epithelial part of the cornea. It takes different names according to the method used to reach this layer.
PRK or No touch
If the epithelial layer is removed by laser, the method used is called PRK if it is removed with no touch, spatula or alcohol.
The epithelial layer will renew itself within 4-5 days. It is a painless method and stinging and burning can be felt for 1-2 days after the operation. It may take several months for vision to become sharp.
In Lasik method, a cover called flap is created in the cornea. While a knife was used to create this cover in the past, today it is started to be made with laser. With this laser called femtosecond, the cover is removed and the cornea is reshaped with an excimer laser.
Unlike the standard method, a personalized cornea map is created. Laser shots are made in accordance with the corneal topography of the person. It is applied completely under computer control without any mechanical intervention. While removing the cornea layer, a knife is not used, the valves are removed using a laser. It is one of the important developments in laser eye treatments as it provides personalized treatment.

My contact for istavita was a guy who answered my many questions quickly & with a great deal of patience at different times of the day. He was clear as to what to expect which lived up to what happened.
