TOP MEDICAL SPECIALITIES OFFERED BY DUNYAGOZ ANTALYA HOSPITAL The Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, Turkey, provides some of the best medical and surgical services. This is one of the top reasons why both local and international patients prefer to visit this hospital. Patients from Turkey and abroad think of it as their first choice. Some of the specialties offered by Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital are: • RETINAL DISEASES The retina is the part of the eye sensitive to light cells, known as rods and cones, along with other important cells. These cells organize the visual information we receive and transfer them to the brain via the optic tract, enabling us to see. The symptoms of retinal ailments range widely, but most of them are visual. Common manifestations include retinopathy, retinal tear, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, all of which require careful use of knowledge and skill and the application of best techniques for the early diagnosis and prompt treatment of the ailment in which Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital excels at. • PRESBYOPIA Presbyopia is the gradual loss of near vision with age. This usually occurs after 40 and can be noticed while reading books, newspapers, or the inability to focus on close objects. This decrease in vision is mainly due to the loss of flexibility of the intraocular lens, which normally is flexible and helps in the bending of light as it passes into the eye and thus helps in focusing. The risk factors for presbyopia are age, diabetes, and use of certain drugs. At Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, not only do they help treat presbyopia but also counsel their clients to reduce its risk factors. • LASEK LASEK (Laser-Assisted Epithelial Keratomileusis) is a type of eye surgery used to treat refractive errors such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness, and astigmatism. LASEK is a common alternative to LASIK (Laser-Assisted In situ Keratomileusis) and is one of the safest forms of laser eye surgery out there. LASEK is a very popular surgery that follows the basic principle of changing the shape of your cornea with a laser for better vision. This procedure performed at Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital is painless and sutureless. It takes about 5 minutes for each eye with excellent outcomes, resulting in patients being able to see perfectly within a few days. • CATARACT A cataract is the clouding of the otherwise clear lens of the eye. This leads to blurring of vision resulting in the inability to read a book or drive a car, especially at night. These cataracts develop slowly over time with no symptoms but may lead to difficulty in usual activities and may eventually need surgery. Cataracts can be associated with advancing age, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, obesity, or simply exposure to the sun, among other things. At Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, not only do they provide the best treatment options when you’ve been diagnosed with cataracts. They make sure that the diagnosis is early with regular eye checkups, counselling for risk factors, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. • STRABISMUS Strabismus, commonly known as crossed eyes, is a condition in which there is improper alignment of both the sights with each other when looking at an object. In normal conditions, six muscles control the movement of the eyes. They help our eyes to point and focus on one thing. Any issues in either the nerves controlling them or the muscles themselves or uncorrected refractive errors can lead to this condition. It can be prevented, especially in children, if a timely diagnosis is made, which is the topmost priority at Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital. Treatment for strabismus ranges from contact lenses, eye patches, eye exercises to medicines and surgeries. All these treatment options are provided at Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital by the highly skilled and well-equipped staff. • UVEITIS Uvea is the middle layer of the wall of our eyes. Uveitis refers to the inflammation of this wall resulting in painful symptoms. Uveitis can be of one or both eyes and can affect people of all ages. Uveitis can present as blurring vision, redness of the eye, pain, decreased vision, floaters and sensitivity to light. The aetiology of this inflammatory response of the middle layer of the eye can be an infection, eye injury, auto-immune disorders, side effects of some medications or rarely cancer that affects the look. Uveitis can be diagnosed in clinics by assessing your vision, tonometry, slit-lamp examination and ophthalmology, among other methods. All these are provided at Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, with the best treatment options ranging from medications to relieve the symptoms or by performing a vitrectomy. • VITREORETINAL DISEASES Vitreoretinal Diseases are the conditions that affect the retina and the vitreous of the eye. The retina is the light-sensitive part of the eye, while the vitreous is a clear gel-like substance present between the lens and the retina. These conditions include Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Macular hole, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Uveitis, Retinal tear or detachment, among many others. Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, with its highly trained staff, makes sure that they use all the latest techniques and equipment for the treatment of this complete range of diseases. With early diagnostic options such as Digital Fluorescein Angiography, Optical Coherence Tomography, ICG, Heidelberg Retinal Tomography, treatment options such as Anti-VEGF therapy, cryotherapy, laser therapy, photodynamic therapy, and vitrectomy are used to treat the patients. • MYOPIA AND ASTIGMATISM Myopia and Astigmatism are among the most common diseases of the eye. Both of these refractive errors cause the blurring of vision. In myopia, the patient cannot see distant objects clearly, while in astigmatism, there's loss of curvature of the cornea, causing a blurred image. Both genetics and environment play an important role in driving these conditions. Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital offers the use of contact lenses, glasses along with laser eye surgery for correcting these refractive errors after assessing the patient and choosing the best method after proper counselling. • AMBLYOPIA Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is when one of the eyes doesn't develop vision properly. This results in decreased input to the brain from that eye which can end up in the brain ignoring that eye and thus a permanent loss of vision if left untreated. Lazy eyes can be due to many causes such as, refractive errors, strabismus, drooping eyelid, and cataract. Patients with amblyopia can present with a tilting head, squinting one eye, and trouble with depth perception. This condition can be treated by correcting the underlying cause first. • MULTIFOCAL IOL A cataract is a dense cloudy area that causes opacification of the lens of the eye. This causes loss of vision, halos, fading of colors, trouble with bright lights and difficulty seeing at night. This is treated by removing the crystalline lens of the eye and replacing it with a multifocal intraocular lens, a prosthetic lens, which restores the vision. Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, with its highly trained staff, offers the implantation of Multifocal IOL according to the patient’s need and helps regain the near, intermediate and far vision. • GLAUCOMA A glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve and thus interfere with the range of vision. This damage is mainly due to abnormally high intraocular pressure. Even though it can occur at any age, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness among people aged above 60. Glaucoma usually doesn't show any symptoms and is clinically silent. The loss of visual field due to this condition is permanent, so it is necessary to have regular check-ups for its early diagnosis and prompt treatment. Being aged above 60, being short or long-sighted, having high IOP (Intraocular Pressure), family history of glaucoma, injury to the eye, use of corticosteroids, all put you at risk to develop glaucoma. The diagnosis is made by routine eye examination, visual field tests, trigonometry, pachymetry and gonioscopy. These are performed routinely at Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital, and treatment options range from medications to surgical procedures to relieve the symptoms and treat the disease. • CONJUNCTIVITIS Conjunctivitis or Pink eye is the inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye. Conjunctiva is a transparent layer that lines out eyelids and covers the white part of our eyeballs. The pink color of the eye is due to the blockage of the vessels due to inflammation giving the eye a pink appearance. Pink eye can be caused by a bacterial or viral infection or in babies due to improper tear ducts. Pink eye rarely has any effects on the vision but can be irritating and contagious. Its spread can be limited by early diagnosis and treatment. Dunyagoz Antalya Hospital offers early diagnosis and prompt treatment of conjunctivitis with proper counselling to help prevent any further instances of the disease.
