“Ilasik” for Eye Defects Treatment

Surg. Faruk Eroğlu, Specialist of Eye Health and Eye Diseases Department in Hisar Intercontinental Hospital informed us about ”İlasik” treatment which is used as the most effective method in treatment of eye defects such as myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism and enables more than 70 millions of people around the world to give up eye glasses and contact lenses.


What is “ILASIK”?

ILASIK is the consolidation of today’s recent laser technology, INTRA-LASE TM and a personal treatment (Advanced CustomVueTM) which is made through VISX Star S4 IR excimer Laser Device. Two basic steps of laser treatment which are creating Corneal Flap and then applying laser on the cornea became “patient-specific”, even “eye-specific”. Since “iris recognition system” is used in laser application, correct information obtained from the measurement can be applied in one-to-one manner and the treatment can be completed with almost zero error. This one-to-one technology in ILASIK method is highly reliable. NASA and US Army gave approval for ILASIK treatment of the astronauts and pilots in air forces.


Steps of Treatment

• Personal treatment profile is created by observing the eye in detail.   All characteristics of the eye are recorded.
• Eye drop is instilled and the eye is anesthetized.  Corneal flap is created by means of INTRA-LASE. The process is completed in seconds.
• All of your eye defects are treated by using Advanced CustomVue and VISX Star S4 IR excimer Laser Device.
i-LASİK is effective on the treatment of Myopia, Hypermetropia and Astigmatism. It is a nonsurgical method and takes only 10 minutes. The patient does not feel a strong pain.
