All of us, more or less, we have heard about myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. These terms describe the most significant refractive disorders of eyes.
These refractive disorders may be corrected if we manage to focus,with appropriate methods, the image of the object onto the retina. This is achieved either by adding lenses such as eyeglasses, contact or bifocal lenses or by altering tissue composition of the natural eye lenses (i.e. the cornea and crystalline lens), as is done with laser surgery and refractive lens exchange (RLE) surgery.
As in all choices in our lives, there are advantages and disadvantages for each treatment of refractive disorders. Each method is examined carefully and balanced with the expectations of each patient. Operating methods for myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are safe procedures with low complication rate for the patient. Applying though massively any surgical medical method, the number of complaints increases.
Refractive surgery is at an excellent level in our country and usually the patient information is sufficient.
