About the Department

Although the eye covers a very small volume in our body, it is one of our most important organs. As one of our 5 sensory organs, we obtain 85 percent of the data coming to our brain in daily life with our eyes. In this sense, it can be understood how closely eye health can be related to body health.

Eye examination should be performed periodically in early infancy, childhood and adulthood. Currently, eye examination should be performed in infants at 2 months, 6 months and 12 months, and eye examination should be repeated regularly every year, even if there is no problem.

Computerized and manual measurement and evaluation devices such as autorefractokeratometer, airpuff and applanation tonometers (for eye pressure measurement), biomicroscope, direct-indirect ophthalmoscope are used in eye examinations and patient information is also stored in computer environment.

The most modern techniques and devices used by experienced surgeons are used in all operations of the eye. Cataract surgeries are performed in almost all patients with drop anesthesia with seamless phacoemulsification technique. All types of complicated vitreoretinal surgery, including pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane peeling, treatment of advanced age-related macular degeneration, and subretinal vitrectomy are performed successfully in advanced vision loss due to diabetes. Corneal transplantation is performed using donor corneas obtained from eye banks.

Glaucoma (eye pressure), strabismus and retinal detachment operations are performed using the most appropriate methods for the eye. Excimer laser applications for correction of myopia, astigmatism and hypermetropia are performed by lasik method and drop anesthesia.
