Stating that Excimer Laser treatment, also known as eye drawing surgery, has been used safely in the world for more than 30 years, Ophthalmology Specialist Op. Dr. Yalçın İşcan stated that I am experiencing the invaluable happiness and honor of bringing this treatment to the city where I was born and raised with the same standards as the best clinics in the world, with the latest technology devices, and to have realized one of my biggest dreams.
Dr. İşcan made statements about the Excimer Laser, which is applied in the permanent treatment of refractive errors called myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Stating that the laser beam removes the targeted tissue with the desired thickness and width in the treatment, a permanent change is created in the cornea layer located at the outermost part of the eye, and the treatment of myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism is realized, İşcan said, “To be over the age of 18 to apply this treatment, to have the eyeglasses number in the last 1 year. It should be unchanged and the structural properties of the corneal layer should be suitable for the laser.” For this, in addition to routine eye examination, corneal tomography is requested and surgery can be applied to suitable people. Today, with Excimer Laser photo ablation, myopia up to 8 degrees, hyperopia and astigmatism up to 5 degrees can be treated. At the end of this treatment, it is possible to get rid of the glasses permanently.
How many ways can the application be made?
As two methods. We perform these two methods, both the Notouch and Lasik method, in our clinic with the latest standards. In both methods, there is no pain during the operation.
How long is the processing time?
Depending on the device used, laser is applied for a period of 20 seconds to 1 minute, the patient's stay in the laser room is 5-10 minutes in total.
What are the advantages of the applied device?
I can say that the device we use is the fastest and most reliable device in the world, it can reset even the largest numbers in a maximum of 20 seconds. With Contoura laser technology; It measures the defect maps on 22000 different points on your eye, and lasers according to this eye map and offers more than what you see with glasses, that is, it provides a clearer image than the clearest image you can see with glasses. Just as your fingerprint is unique to you, your treatment should also be unique to you!
It also has a multi-dimensional eye tracker that can track the smallest movements of the eye and make hundreds of small adjustments every second.
If at any time the eye goes out of range or moves too fast, the laser will wait for the eye to return to its place and resume without the slightest deviation. In this way, it increases the sensitivity of Lasik and No-touch treatment by ensuring that each laser pulse hits the right place.
How long is the recovery period after the application?
In this method, a thin part of the cornea that we call the flap is removed like a lid, and then the flap is placed in its place by applying treatment. After the surgery, mild burning and stinging complaints occur for the first 4-6 hours, and then both the vision is restored and the complaints are considerably reduced. Those who have LASIK treatment can return to work the day after the surgery.
To Whom Can No Touch Laser Method Be Applied?
Notouch laser can be applied to myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism with suitable eye structure.
How is No Touch Laser Application Made?

What is the Healing Process After No Touch Laser Procedure?
Generally, the eyes do not need to be closed after the procedure, the patient can go home by keeping both eyes open. Generally, burning and stinging occurs in the first 2-3 days, and complaints are expected to pass on the 4th day.

When Does Vision After Notouch Become Clear?
Blurring may occur up to the 4th day after Notouch Laser. Generally, from the 5th day, clarity starts to increase and routine tasks such as computer and driving can be done. Visual clarity gradually increases up to 21 days.
What are the Points to Be Considered After the Application?
Op.Dr. Yalçın İŞCAN drew attention to the regular use of eye drops prescribed after the procedure. Care should be taken to protect the eyes from UV light as much as possible, and care should be taken to use sunglasses when the daylight is sharp. The eyes should not be touched with water for 4 days and the vehicle should not be driven immediately after the application. Also, Notouch laser does not prevent other eye operations such as cataracts that may develop in advanced ages.
