Femto LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. The goal of LASIK surgery is to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses and contacts and correct common problems such as farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism.

LASEK, PRK, TransPRK: These 3 techniques are basically variations of the same technique. Here femto laser is not used to create a flap, instead a thinner layer is removed manually or by excimer laser. We prefer this technique only if the patient is not suitable for Femtolasik because it takes longer for the vision to fully recover.
Our mission at Kaskaloglu Eye Hospital is to provide high-quality and affordable vision correction options. The initial consultation for Femto LASIK is free. The basic package price for laser eye surgery is £499 per eye, which includes post-operative eye drops, follow-up assessments, and any further laser eye surgery treatment within ten years if required.
For added convenience and comfort, we offer an optional Premium service package at an extra cost of £299. This package includes airport-hotel-hospital transfers and a 3 or 4-star hotel stay with breakfast (single or double occupancy) for 3 nights.
At Kaskaloglu Eye Hospital, we take pride in having some of the most experienced surgeons in the country, led by Professor Mahmut Kaskaloglu, a pioneer in laser surgery with over 44 years of experience. Our doctors have between 17 to 30 years of specialized experience in Laser Vision Correction. We use the latest Alcon WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser, equipped with a fast eye tracker system, ensuring accurate positioning of the laser beam for customized ablation, tailored to your specific needs. Additionally, our surgeons utilize the Intralase and Alcon LenSx femto lasers to create precise corneal flaps during the procedure, ensuring a minimally invasive and gentle surgery.
Femto LASIK, short for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea using an excimer laser. The goal of LASIK surgery is to reduce your dependency on glasses and contacts, correcting common vision problems such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure involves creating a corneal flap using a femtosecond laser, followed by the application of laser pulses to reshape the cornea. The flap is then repositioned, allowing for a rapid recovery and minimal discomfort.
The Femto LASIK procedure begins with a routine eye examination and corneal topography. Eye drops are used to anesthetize the eye for comfort. During the surgery, the femtosecond laser creates a corneal flap, and the excimer laser reshapes the cornea’s curvature. The flap is then repositioned. Our high-speed eye tracker ensures precise treatment even if there is any accidental eye movement.
Most patients experience very good vision within 3-4 hours after LASIK. Recovery may take longer after LASEK, PRK, or TransPRK. We provide protective glasses for use after surgery, and you will be prescribed eye drops for one month. Pain after the procedure is usually minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers. With our 30 years of experience, we have developed effective regimens to increase your comfort and decrease post-operative discomfort.
For many patients, laser eye surgery provides lifelong freedom from glasses and contacts. However, natural changes in your prescription can occur over time. We offer repeat treatment options for any age group should your vision change following laser eye surgery.
We encourage you to contact us with your spectacle or contact lens prescription and any other relevant eye information. Your age and individual needs will be considered during your consultation to determine the most appropriate laser treatment for your eyes.

– For nearsightedness, prescriptions up to -8 to -9; for long-sightedness, up to +3 to +4; and for astigmatism, up to -6D may be considered suitable for Femto LASIK.
