TOP MEDICAL SPECIALTIES OF HANGIL Hangil Eye Hospital provides a complete range of eye facilities. Top specialties offered by this hospital include: RETINAL SURGERY The most common type of retinal surgery is Vitrectomy. It is a surgical procedure in which the ophthalmologist removes the vitreous humor (a gel-like substance in the eye) from the eye's cavity to access the retina. Any deformities in the retina are repaired this way, such as removing scar tissue and using laser technology to correct retinal detachment. Once the surgery is complete, the vitreous gel is injected with saline solution, silicone oil, or a gas bubble. Other types of retinal surgeries include scleral buckling and pneumatic retinopexy. CATARACT SURGERY Cataract surgery is done to correct cataracts in the eyes. Cataracts often occur as people grow older. When a person has cataracts, their vision becomes blurry, and the glare they receive from lights increases. This happens due to the lens of the eye becoming cloudy. During the cataract surgery at Hangil Eye Hospital, the cloudy lens is removed from the eye and replaced by a clear, artificial lens that functions as a permanent part of the eyes. The patient may be discharged immediately after the surgery is over. Proper and regular check-up services are provided by the qualified ophthalmologists of this hospital to eliminate all the medical risks. STRABISMUS SURGERY Strabismus is commonly known as cross-eyes. It is a condition in which the person loses proper control of eye muscles. During the strabismus surgery at Hangil Eye Hospital, the eye muscle(s) is loosened or tightened, depending on the patient's need. Once the insertion or the length of the muscle is fixed (usually by tying a permanent knot), the eye muscle is sewn to the eye's wall. The ophthalmologist usually prescribes eye drops or antibiotics after the surgery to ensure the best results of surgery. HIGH MYOPIA CORRECTION/ICL SURGERY Myopia is known as nearsightedness in layman's terms. It is a condition in which a person can see nearby objects clearly, but objects farther away are blurred. For myopia correction, LASIK is considered as a relatively standard procedure but, for high degrees of Myopia, ICL surgery is required. ICL stands for Implantable Contact Lens. ICL Surgery at Hangil Eye Hospital is a procedure in which a unique contact lens is implanted in the eye which works in conjunction with the eye's natural lens to provide excellent vision. PRESBYOPIA CORRECTION Presbyopia is the loss of the eye's natural ability to focus on nearby objects. It usually occurs due to aging. The most common treatment of presbyopia so far has been LASIK surgery, generally for Monovision. Presbyopia correction at Hangil Eye Hospital allows the patient to see more clearly than they did before. All the presbyopia correction surgeries are performed here with 100% success and outstanding results of vision. EYE ENUCLEATION Eye Enucleation is a complicated procedure. It is mainly used for eyes with severe ocular tumors, eyes that have suffered trauma, or blind eyes that are painful otherwise. It is also used for the last stages of glaucoma. During the eye enucleation at Hangil Eye Hospital, the eye is removed from the orbit, leaving the eye's muscles and other contents in the orbital cavity intact. It is a delicate process requiring great expertise. Ophthalmologists in this hospital are highly dedicated, qualified, trained, and experienced. They perform these procedures with outstanding excellence giving best and expected outcomes.
