About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Ophthalmology at the Hisar Intercontinental Hospital Istanbul provides the high-quality diagnostics and treatment of the full range of diseases of the eye and its appendages in patients of all ages, including children. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Omer Kamil Dogan.
The department's doctors have advanced equipment, which allows them to carry out the accurate diagnostics, highly effective laser procedures, simple routine procedures for the treatment of ophthalmic pathologies, as well as complex operations for the treatment of cataracts, glaucoma, corneal transplantation, refractive eye surgery, etc. The department has an innovative excimer laser iLASIK, with the help of which the department's ophthalmologists successfully correct various visual impairments: myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, etc. The efficiency of this laser system has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The laser technology allows the doctor to maintain high visual acuity in patients with serious pathological changes.
The scope of tasks of pediatric ophthalmologists includes the diagnostics and treatment of visual impairments in young patients. To detect pathological changes in the eyes in children during the first months of their life, the doctors perform regular eye screenings. Particular attention is paid to premature babies, since they often suffer from retinopathy of prematurity. The most common pediatric diseases treated in the department include congenital cataracts, congenital glaucoma, strabismus, nystagmus, refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism).
The clinical practice is based on an individual approach to each patient, taking into account his anatomical features, personal needs and wishes.
