The summer months have created a doping effect in dentist and health tourism Turkey packages.

During this period, the increase in the number of foreign patients made health groups laugh. Foreign patients, who take holidays and get treatment opportunities, prefer Turkey for laser surgeries on the most eyes in the summer months

Summer months are very productive not only in terms of sea, sand, solar tourism, but also in terms of health tourism. During this period, foreigners who come to Turkey are both treated and on vacation. At the beginning of the most applied treatment methods, laser eye surgery comes.

Turkey Medicals member Dünygöz Hospitals Group Strategy and Business Development Deputy General Manager / Executive Board Member in a statement said, ‘ the number of foreign patients coming for laser eye surgery in the summer has increased by 70 percent, ‘ he pointed out.

Deputy General Manager, who stated that they offer both treatment and holiday opportunities in 5-star hotels with health tourism packages for patients from abroad, said: “the removal of visas has also contributed to our country in terms of health tourism. There are significant increases in the number of patients from Western Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Caucasus geography. Foreign patients most often come to our country for laser surgeries,” he said. An average of 30,000 patients a year from abroad come to World Hospitals for the treatment of eye laser, strabismus, eye aesthetics to retinal diseases they receive services in 19 branches of the eye.

In the past, only economic price was the reason why our country was preferred in health tourism. Today, we offer the highest quality of service with our expertise and experience in refractive surgery, the most advanced treatment methods that we apply in World-Wide hospitals.

Deputy General Manager, gave the following information; “the state does not bear the cost of some surgeries because health expenditures are increasing in many countries, including developed countries. In this way, the patient is turning to countries such as Turkey, which has created a solid infrastructure in health tourism, rather than an operation in which he can spend a lot of money in his own country. As a group of World hospitals, thanks to our agreements with 5-star hotels in the south, patients operate in our hospital from the comfort of a 5-Star Hotel in Antalya, and then spend their vacation by staying in their preferred hotel. Price, quality of service, comfort and Doctor experience are very important criteria for the patient here. Looking at these criteria, Turkey is in a very advantageous situation and attracts serious patients.”

Dünygöz, who stated that there are still question marks in the minds of patients about laser surgeries from the methods that offer the shortest and healthiest solution to eye problems

Op. Dr. summarized the questions and answers that patients ask most in laser treatments as follows:

1- Can I see more clearly with laser treatment?

In terms of the success of laser eye treatments and the patient’s eye health, the suitability of the eye structure is of great importance. As a result of detailed examinations of the eye structure of patients, laser compatibility should be determined.the result of laser operations on people who are not suitable for the laser for any reason can have dangerous results that can lead to corneal transplantation. According to the results obtained so far, 50 percent of people who want to have laser surgery have not been treated because the eye structure is not suitable for laser treatment.

2- What’s the right method for me?

Today, there are many methods of laser eye treatment in the world and Turkey. In our country, the use of mostly knife and old methods increases the risk of complications during surgery. In addition, these methods can cause the targeted eye numbers to not be reached after surgery and cause problems with night vision.

Now we can achieve up to 120 percent successful results in the latest Blade-free laser Intralase and personalized I-LASIK treatment methods. After treatment, the percentage of vision depends on the person’s eye structure, and we determine it before surgery with examinations and examinations. Thanks to Intralase and I-LASIK in Turkey, knife-free treatment methods, we achieve clear success in planned surgical results. After a 15-minute operation , our patients leave painlessly and without bandages, when they leave, they can easily read the numbers on their wristwatch and return to their social life the next day.

We use two technologies together in the i-LASIK method by eye doctors in Turkey, which is considered the most advanced and reliable method in world that we use in eye optical Dünyagöz hospitals. Intralase and Wavefront technologies.

in addition to myopia and hypermetropia with I-LASIK in Turkey, reliable and completely personalized treatment is provided for astigmatism treatments. Thanks to this method, the final point was put to the different methods used for years in laser treatment and the skeptical approach of patients. Another proof of the reliability of the treatment is that due to the stable outcome of the treatment and the high quality of vision, NASA and the American military forces approved its application to astronauts and fighter pilots subjected to harsh environmental conditions. The I-LASIK method, which doctors rely on, also responds to patients ‘ expectations.
