Regular eye examinations are needed to prevent development of visual impair­ments and to protect healthy eyes. Vi­sion is one the most important element that connects people to the life. One should always remember that visual im­pairments and eye diseases can only be detected by an ophthalmologist.

Irrespective of wearing eyeglasses, all adults aged >40 should visit an ophthal­mologist once a year. The period can be once every 6 hours for children or even shorter for some special conditions, if advised by the doctor. The optimal tim­ing of the first eye exam is 3rd year of the life in a child with no complaint.

About Cataract Surgery;

Cataract implies opacification of the clear eye lens that is located at the posterior segment of the eyeball. Since clearness of vision is lost due to the lens that starts developing opacity, the person sees somewhat behind a dirty window and the quality of vision impairs.

Symptoms of Cataract:

•Quality of vision decreases (pale and yel­lowing in color),

•Photosensitivity increases,

• Double vision.

•Reading difficulty,

•Impaired vision at night,

• Frequent changes in dioptre (correction power) of eye glasses.

Cataract is most common in;

•People over middle ages,

•In diabetic patients,

•Patients with long-term use of corticoste­roids, •Persons with physical eye trauma.

There is no treatment of cataract disease with medicine or eyeglasses. Surgery is the only curative option. As a result of the necessary investigations performed during examination, the patient is ad­vised the most suitable lens. Specialized physicians of Turkiye Hospital carries out pain-free cataract surgery within a short time using modern and technolog­ical equipment, and patients can resume routine daily life in the postoperative pe­riod.
