About the Department of Adult and Pediatric Ophthalmology at Medical Park Gebze Hospital

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Ophthalmology at the Medical Park Gebze Hospital offers the full range of medical services for the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the eyes and their appendages. To make an accurate diagnosis, the department applies all the options of modern ophthalmology, including visual acuity testing, intraocular pressure measurement, biomicroscopy, retinoscopy, etc. Most ophthalmologic interventions are performed using laser technologies, which makes them less traumatic and significantly shortens the period of postoperative recovery. The department is one of the most advanced medical facilities of this kind in Turkey. The department is headed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. med. Metin Ekinci.

The department's specialists have successful experience in the diagnostics and treatment of refractive errors. As a rule, refractive errors are associated with defects in the cornea, lens, retina or optic nerve, and therefore the patients are advised to undergo regular ophthalmic check-up. To treat such pathological changes, the department's doctors successfully use glasses, contact lenses and excimer laser therapy.

Another equally important focus of the department's clinical activities is the treatment of cataracts (partial or complete clouding of the lens of the eye). In most cases, the pathology affects mature patients, but it can occur in patients of all age groups, including infants. The only treatment option for mature cataracts is lens replacement surgery. The department uses an innovative method – phacoemulsification. The result of the operation is significantly affected by the quality and type of lens, which the doctor will implant instead of the affected lens. The department's specialists prefer the use of intraocular lenses with a special coating and filters. In a number of clinical cases, multifocal/trifocal intraocular lenses can be used.

The department's field of ​​competence also includes glaucoma treatment. The most effective method for glaucoma detection is regular preventive ophthalmic check-ups. The diagnostics involves the use of optical coherence tomography, pachymetry and computerized visual field testing. Vision loss caused by glaucoma is irreversible. To prevent the progression of the pathology, the doctors use eye drops, laser surgery (argon laser) and surgical interventions.
