Reach out to us via WhatsApp, phone, or email, and we’ll arrange an appointment that fits your schedule.

You can reach out through various methods, but WhatsApp is the quickest and most convenient.

Please share relevant information about your eye health and personal details. If you’ve already decided on a specific procedure, inform us. Essential details include: 

– Your eyeglass prescription or its copy

– Your age

– Any medical conditions you have

– Medications you’re currently taking

Feel free to disclose any information you’re comfortable sharing.

Yes, once your appointment is settled, please forward us your flight ticket for confirmation. If you’ve opted for the Premium package, which includes transfers and hotel arrangements, we’ll handle everything once we receive a copy of your ticket. Please specify if you require a single or double room.

Certainly, just contact us and inform us of your desired date.

From the preliminary data you’ve provided, we have a general understanding of the potential procedure suitable for you. Nonetheless, our final decision will be based on an in-depth eye assessment. This will encompass a standard eye examination, an OCT test for the macula and optic disk, a tear film test, IOLMaster biometry, Corneal topography using Pentacam, Itrace, and any additional tests if deemed necessary. Rest assured, all these tests are non-contact and won’t cause any discomfort. Should we determine that surgery isn’t the right fit for you, there will be no charges on our end. However, if you’ve chosen our premium package, which covers hotel and transfers, those fees will still apply.

You can make the payment directly at the hospital upon arrival; there’s no need for prepayment. We accept payments in £, $, Euro, and TL. The prices listed on our website are for cash payments. We also accept major credit cards, though please note there’s a 10% surcharge.

Certainly! Add-on lenses, also known as secondary or piggyback lenses, are intraocular lenses (IOLs) implanted in the eye in addition to an existing primary IOL. They’re typically used to adjust or enhance the eye’s refractive outcome after the primary IOL has been implanted during cataract surgery.

Trifocal IOLs, on the other hand, are designed to provide clear vision at three distinct distances: near, intermediate, and distance.

Here’s a combination of both concepts — an add-on trifocal intraocular lens:

  1. Purpose: An add-on trifocal IOL is intended to provide patients with a broader range of clear vision, encompassing near, intermediate, and far distances, when the primary IOL doesn’t offer such a range or when a patient’s needs evolve over time.
  2. Design: The lens has three distinct focal points to correspond with the three main vision ranges. It’s designed to be thin and light, allowing it to be placed in front of an existing primary IOL without causing complications or crowding.
  3. Implantation: The add-on lens is usually placed in the ciliary sulcus of the eye, a space located just in front of the primary IOL, which is positioned within the capsular bag where the natural lens used to be.
  4. Advantages:

   – Flexibility: If a patient’s refractive needs change over time or if the outcome of the primary IOL isn’t ideal, an add-on lens can be a less invasive option than replacing the primary IOL.

   – Adjustability: In case of a refractive surprise post-cataract surgery or if presbyopia advances, an add-on lens can be implanted to correct the vision without having to explant the primary IOL.

   – Reduction in Spectacle Dependence: The trifocal design aims to minimize the need for glasses across a range of distances.

  1. Considerations:

   – Visual Phenomena: As with all multifocal lenses, there might be potential visual side effects, such as halos or glare, especially at night. These effects might diminish over time as the brain adapts.

   – Surgical Risks: While the insertion of an add-on IOL is typically straightforward, any surgical procedure comes with potential risks, such as infection, inflammation, or retinal complications.

If you or someone you know is considering an add-on trifocal IOL, it’s essential to consult with an ophthalmologist to understand the potential benefits, risks, and suitability of the procedure.

Of course! Our doctors have experience with SML, EyeMax Mono and other telescopic intraocular laens implants. The SML (Scharioth Macula Lens) is another type of intraocular lens (IOL) specifically designed for patients with macular diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Here’s some information about the SML:

  1. Purpose: The SML has been developed to help patients with macular degeneration, especially those who have difficulty with central vision tasks like reading. It’s designed to provide magnification to aid in these tasks.
  2. Design: The SML features a central magnifying portion within the IOL. This central area provides a +10D (Diopter) addition, offering a magnified image of what’s directly in front of the eye, aiding the remaining healthy retinal cells in the macula to capture more detailed visual information.
  3. Implementation: Typically, the SML is implanted during cataract surgery. Once the natural, clouded lens is removed, the SML can be placed in the same capsular bag. However, for those who’ve already undergone cataract surgery with a standard IOL implant, another option would be a supplementary IOL placement where the SML is added in front of the existing IOL.
  4. Outcomes: Patients who have received the SML implant have reported improved reading abilities and better performance in tasks requiring detailed vision. However, as with any intervention, results can vary among individuals.
  5. Benefits: The primary benefit of the SML is its magnifying capability, which can assist patients with macular degeneration in tasks they find challenging, like reading or seeing detailed images.
  6. Limitations: The magnifying effect is beneficial for near tasks, but the lens does not restore vision to its pre-degeneration state or cure macular degeneration. Additionally, the magnified view is specific to the central portion of the visual field, so peripheral vision remains unaffected.

If considering the SML or any other IOL, it’s essential to consult with an ophthalmologist to discuss potential benefits, risks, and the procedure itself.

Certainly!  Our doctors have experience with EyeMax Mono, SML,and other telescopic intraocular lens implants. The EyeMax Mono intraocular lens (IOL) is a specialized lens designed for patients with macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a progressive eye disease that affects the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for detailed, central vision. The disease leads to a loss of central vision, making everyday tasks like reading or recognizing faces difficult.

Here’s some information about the EyeMax Mono IOL:

  1. Purpose: Unlike standard IOLs, which are primarily designed to address cataracts, the EyeMax Mono is designed specifically to enhance the image quality for those with macular degeneration.
  2. Design: The EyeMax Mono is uniquely structured to maximize the use of peripheral retina. By distributing light uniformly across the entire retina (and not just the damaged macula), it can help the patient use healthier parts of the retina for better vision.
  3. Cataract Surgery: This IOL is often implanted during cataract surgery. Once the natural, clouded lens is removed during cataract surgery, the EyeMax Mono IOL is placed to not only replace the lens but also help with the vision limitations caused by macular degeneration.
  4. Outcomes: Patients who have undergone cataract surgery with the EyeMax Mono implant have reported improvement in their overall quality of vision. However, it’s essential to set realistic expectations. While the EyeMax Mono can help to improve vision, it won’t cure macular degeneration or completely restore vision to what it was before the onset of the disease.
  5. Considerations: Like all medical procedures and interventions, there are potential risks and benefits. It’s important for patients to discuss with their ophthalmologist if the EyeMax Mono IOL is right for them, considering their specific condition and needs.
  6. Limitations: While the EyeMax Mono can enhance visual outcomes in patients with macular degeneration, it is not a treatment or cure for the disease itself. Patients will still have macular degeneration after the lens is implanted.

If you or someone you know is considering the EyeMax Mono IOL, it’s vital to have a thorough discussion with an ophthalmologist to understand the potential benefits, risks, and limitations of the lens.
