Types of Eye Surgery in Turkey

Now let's understand the types of surgery our clinic provides, which include:

In this surgery, the doctor makes incisions to remove the excess skin from the upper and lower eyelid, depending on the patient's requirement.

A cloudy area in the lens of an eye affects visibility, which is known as a cataract. The doctor removes this lens and replaces it with an artificial lens.

A cornea transplant can be done at full thickness or partial thickness, depending on the patient's surgery requirement.

The surgeon transplants the damaged cornea and replaces it with healthy donor tissue.

A tiny tube is inserted into the white of the eye that drains extra fluid from the eye and lowers eye pressure. This tiny tube is called a shunt. The surgeons make an opening under the eyelid to drain out the extra fluid.

In this type of eye surgery, the doctor removes the retina or vitreous (a gel-like fluid) from the middle of the eye.

After removal of the vitreous, it is replaced either by a bubble made of gas or oil or a salt water solution.[5]

  • No-touch laser(Trans PRK)
  • i-Lasik

No Touch Laser (Trans PRK)

It is a touch-free laser eye treatment. In which neither the eye gets contacted directly, nor any instrument is used for treatment.[6]

The entire procedure is pain-free and takes a short duration.


A special kind of cutting laser is used to reshape the clear dome-shaped tissue (cornea) at the front of the eye.[7]


It is also known as IntraLaze Lasik Excimer Laser, which helps to get rid of visual defects.

A valve is created by using a femtosecond laser beam. This blade-free surgery enhances the accuracy and quality of the procedure.[8]

Lens surgery is also known as refractive lens exchange. In this lens transplant surgery, the natural eye lens is removed, and an artificial lens is placed.[9]

Also, this procedure can be performed manually or by using laser. These replaceable lenses are also called intraocular lenses(IOL).

Here are some types of intraocular lens surgery, which include:

  • Monofocal (Single Focus Lens)
  • Trifocal Intraocular Lens
  • Multifocal Intraocular Lens
  • Trifocal Intraocular Lenses
  • Toric Lens (Astigmatic Lens)
