who have myopia up to -10 diopters,
who have astigmatism up to -6 diopters and hyperopia up to +4 diopters,

who does not suffer from other eye diseases (cone-shaped bulge of the cornea, eye pressure, etc.).
Laser vision correction in clinics in Turkey
The LASIK method is based on the principle of opening the cornea as a flap by cutting a thin layer on the upper surface of the cornea and diopter correction using an "excimer laser" on the exposed surface of the cornea. In Turkish clinics, operations are performed by doctors who have been practicing the treatment of eye diseases with a laser for many years.
However, according to studies from one of the ophthalmology clinics in Turkey, only 50% of patients who would like to undergo laser surgery are eligible for laser treatment.
LASIK procedures in Turkish clinics are performed using laser devices approved by the FDA (American Food and Drug Administration).
Excimer laser treatment for refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism is recognized in the medical community as a reliable method with a high percentage of positive results. Since the early 1980s, millions of people have benefited from this treatment and have been freed from the restrictions on wearing glasses or contact lenses. Since the start of this method, more than 31.4 million people worldwide have received laser surgery. The success rate is almost 98% if laser treatment is applied to the right patients under the right conditions.
Features of laser surgery in Turkey
Turkish ophthalmologists recommend having a one-time 10-minute laser treatment to save money on buying new glasses for the rest of your life. After all, it's no secret to anyone that adults need to undergo annual eye examinations and replace glasses and contact lenses. But this is a waste of time and money, which many do not even notice. On average, a pair of glasses costs between $ 20 and $ 150. Likewise, lens wearers spend at least $ 40 annually on lenses and additional merchandise. Taking these costs into account, the money spent on getting rid of glasses using laser treatment pays off in 1-2 years and leads to significant savings in the following years. A person undergoing laser treatment at the age of 18 saves about $ 2,160 over his life.
The cost of laser vision correction using the LASIK method starts on average from $ 1200.
