.
Turkey accepts the most patients from abroad in eye surgeries, holding the first place in the world with about 500 thousand operations per year. Turkey iHealth, “with the transformation program, especially eye care tourism in Turkey has begun to pay more attention,” was said.

We emphasized that very important steps have been taken in health tourism in Turkey, which is one of the priority goals of Turkey, and the regulations related to it have been prepared and implemented, and said that it has entered into one of the number of countries in the world in this area, noted the importance for eye laser surgery in Antalya Turkey, especially in its close geography.

WE ARE THE FIRST IN HEALTH TOURISM IN EYE SURGERIES

In the scope of medical tourism in Turkey, myopia, farsightedness, such as eye defects in the first place, stating that, “laser eye surgery technology in particular in treatment has led to a breakthrough. However, the number of eye surgeries performed has also increased significantly,”was said.

The number of eye surgeries performed together with sub-technological groups has increased 15-20 times compared to the 1960s,” was said, pointing out that a large number of people who manage glasses or lenses perform operations with laser technology. There has been no such development in any branch in the world. Now the understanding that eye-crushing defects are a disease that can be treated surgically has settled..

This technology was previously made in the numbered center, and that the person did not have to use glass after the operation, and stated that the operation was very short and the patient was able to return to social life a few hours after the application.

THE SUM OF 5 COUNTRIES AFTER US CANNOT REACH THE NUMBER OF TURKEY

The experience of a doctor is very important in the success of surgery, warned that it should be done in safe places, since a mistake made can lead to loss of vision, and emphasized that “Turkey is an important country in the success of surgery and the number of applications,” continued:

Within the scope of eye surgeries in medical tourism, about 25 percent of patients who cross borders prefer Turkey.

About 500 thousand operations are performed annually in Turkey to cover patients from abroad. That’s a very serious number. There are no countries that do as much as Turkey. Therefore, we are the best country that receives patients for eye surgeries from abroad. The leader of this sector is Turkey. In this area, Turkey is followed by India, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.”

Turkey in this area is much more appropriate than other countries in the operation costs, stating, “the total paid cost of travel expenses is very important, these operations are also preferred in countries with close flight distances. For this reason, patients should not be expected to come to Turkey from the United States for eye surgery,” was said.

.
FIRST PLACE IN THE UK AMONG PATIENTS COMING TO TURKEY

With only by 4 hours flight, the UK ranks first among countries that come to Turkey for eye surgeries. “We accept a very significant number of patients from the UK, followed by patients from Germany and Middle Eastern countries,” was said.

The number of patients in eye surgery is much higher than these figures, noting that millions of people around the world are waiting in line for surgery.

Eye surgeries are short-lived and then outpatient follow-up is required for these operations for patients who come, whether the Centers are in tourist provinces or not, noted, said:

“Patients choose centers in Istanbul and Antalya for eye surgeries, as they also demand traditional tourist activities after the procedure. Two-thirds of incoming patients prefer these provinces in eye operations. This is followed by Ankara, Izmir and Bursa. More Arab tourists come to Bursa, Sapanca and Yalova, black sea.”
