OPHTHALMOLOGY

      The eye is the mirror of the soul, it has a special language to reveal the mysteries of the self and its emotions. Therefore, since ancient ages, the human has sought to protect and treat the eye, as a result, the profession of ophthalmology has started in our country as an independent specialization.

      There are many factors that cause eye diseases such as aging, DNA, external factors and some systemic diseases. The essential condition for successful treatment is early diagnosis and periodic examination of the eyes.


LASER Treatment

      The Laser is a radiation directed to the cornea to treat myopia, hyperopia, or corneal aberration (astigmatism) and consequently, medical glasses will be abandoned. This process takes about 10-15 minutes for one eye and a local anesthetic will be used as droplets, and the patient will be kept awake during the operation. During the operation Excimer Laser will be used to remove a part of the inner tissue of the cornea, then the surface layer will be returned to cling to the cornea without surgical stitches.

     LASIK is a shortcut to (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratectomy). In this method, the shape of the cornea will be changed by laser according to the defects of the vision degree, after displacing the outer surface of the cornea. Then the surface of the cornea will be reconstructed. Ophthalmologists prefer using this method because of its accuracy and the lack of serious complications that may result.

     PRK is a shortcut to (Photo refractive Keratectomy). This is the second most common eye surgery after LASIK, during this operation the part of the surface of the cornea or epithelial tissue will be removed, then it will grow again spontaneously. This process is suitable for those suffering from a thin cornea. Pain and discomfort are felt for 2-4 days after the operation because healing of the epithelial tissue is completed in this period.

     LASEK is a shortcut to (Laser Assisted Sub Epithelial Keratectomy). This process includes cutting off a part of the cornea using the laser. It is very similar to PRK process, but it is different in that alcohol is applied to the corneal epithelium to decrease the corneal cells and move the cells easily without removing them. Some patients may experience burning and stinging in the eyes for 2-3 days. The vision becomes clear within 1 week to 10 days, the final result may be completed in the third month; however, patients can do their daily activities without using eyeglasses during this period of time.

  • The patient has to be over 18 years old, his diopters have not changed more than 0.50 diopters during the last 12 months.
  • The patient has myopia up to -10 diopters, or astigmatism up to -6 diopters and hyperopia up to +4 diopters.
  • The patient’s eye structure is suitable for surgery.
  • The thickness of the cornea must be suitable.
  • The most common effects are Light sensitivity occurs on the first day, the desire to scratch the eyes and some redness may occur in one or both eyes but it can heal without treatment within 15 days maximum.
  • Drought in the eyes, so a moisturizing drop is used in the first weeks.
Since 1988, laser therapy has been performed in nearly 2 million cases around the world, and there is no a sign of bad eye effect.

Corneal Transplantation

      Corneal can be damaged by many infectious diseases, and some eye diseases that may cause a variance in the shape of the cornea, which affects the ability to see, and sometimes leads to darkness. In these cases, the patient needs to implant a new cornea. The cornea that will be implanted will be cut to suit the damage of the original cornea. Then it will be fixed - sometimes without the need for suturing. At the end of the operation, a bandage is placed above the eye.

  • In some cases, only during in the healing phase, scar forms on the cornea that has been implanted may appear and thus it makes the vision unclear.
  • Rejection implanted cornea. But now we can use ANTI - IMMUNE RESPONSE DRUGS.
  • Drought in the eyes, so a moisturizing drop is used for about a month.
  • The most common effects are Light sensitivity occurs on the first day, the desire to scratch the eyes and some redness may occur in one or both eyes but it can heal without treatment within 15 days maximum.
  • Drought in the eyes, so a moisturizing drop is used in the first weeks.
95% and more if correct treatment methods are followed.

Cataract

Cataract is a term that refers to impaired vision, resulting from the loss of transparency of the lens which located behind the pupil. This status could be found in elderly people frequently. The patient will feel better immediately after the surgery, but the best improvement occurs after a month of operation.


      We also use the best treatment techniques in the following cases: Presbyopia, strabismus, retina, glaucoma, lazy eye, and uveitis.
