Trans PRK

What is Trans PRK?


No Touch Laser treatment, myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism treatment is done without touching the eye.

To which patients can the No Touch Laser Method be applied?

It can be applied to myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism with suitable eye structure. So, patients with distance and near vision problems may be candidates for this treatment. It is a method that can be applied to people who have had cataract surgery before and to patients who are prone to tears or tears in their retinas, provided that their eye structures are suitable. Finally, No Touch Laser treatment can be applied especially in cases with thin corneas and corneal surface steeper than normal.


How Is Laser Eye Surgery Performed?

No Touch Laser treatment begins by instilling anesthetic drops into the eye and the patient does not feel any pain during the application. There is no device contact with the eye during the treatment; the eye is treated directly with the rays coming out of the laser device. All the patient has to do is look at the green light coming out of the laser device. The procedure is completed in the same session for both eyes in as little as 50 seconds.

No Touch VR

With No Touch VR Technology, which was created as a result of joint work with Veni Vidi Göz and Turkish engineers, patients have the chance to experience the surgery they will experience before eye laser surgery with VR glasses.

Patients who apply to our institution for surgery can see all the steps of the No Touch Laser operation through VR glasses accompanied by our staff. They can see the operating room environment 360 degrees and observe the surgery process from three different points.

Thus, the question marks in our patients' minds are eliminated in the most clear way, while also contributing to them overcoming their fear of surgery.

What is the Healing Process After No Touch Laser Procedure?

After the treatment, the eyes do not need to be closed, the patient can go home with both eyes open. During this process, the patient is given UV protective glasses to protect his eyes. After the patient goes home, complaints such as stinging eyes, redness, discomfort with light, and blurred vision of small print on television develop for 36 hours. It is aimed to make this process more comfortable with the medications that will be prescribed to the patient. After spending the first three days at home, the patient comes for a check-up on the 4th day. On the 4th day after the treatment, the patient begins to do tasks such as working on the computer and at the end of the 7th day, driving a car. As the healing process progresses, the patient's experience of healthy vision will increase. This process can take approximately a month. There is no increase in the patient's eye number after no touch laser application. In other words, the use of contact lenses and glasses is out of the question.

What are the things to consider after application?

The eye should not come into contact with water for approximately 1 week. After the procedure, care should be taken to use the prescribed eye drops for the period specified by your doctor. Care should be taken to protect the eyes from UV light as much as possible and care should be taken to use sunglasses during hours of sharp daylight. Vehicles should not be driven immediately after surgery. In order for the healing process to proceed healthily, you should rest for a certain period of time and avoid strenuous work.

How to Apply for Night Vision Problems?

In the wavefront application, also known as 'eagle eye' among the public, light scattering and deviations within the eye are measured and laser treatment is adjusted accordingly. When these deviations are corrected with the wavefront technique, treatment appropriate to the person's own eye structure is achieved.

Why No Touch Laser?

  • The treatment takes place without device contact with the eyes.
  • Treatment is given to both eyes in the same session.
  • The eyes are not closed after the treatment.
  • It can be applied to patients with thin corneas. .
  • It can be applied to myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
  • There is no need to remove any layer from the eye.
  • Since there is no incision, the possibility of dry eyes is minimal after the procedure.
  • li>
  • It can be applied to higher numbers depending on the patient's eye structure.
