Eye is one of the most important organ for creating perception of the world. Because of the eyes, a person receives 90% of information from the environment. Statistics show about 50-70% of the population in the developing countries have sight problems, but in these countries it is not difficult to carry out the correct diagnosis and correction of myopia or hyperopia. However, the treatment of more complex ophthalmic pathology can be difficult. Even the smallest mistake of a doctor can lead to significant deterioration or loss of vision.


Opthalomology Abroad. Most Common Procedures

It is very important to choose a competent and experienced doctor-ophthalmologist, who can select a quality treatment. That is why high number of patients travel to specialized ophthalmological clinics abroad.

Foreign hospitals have modern diagnostic equipment, and operating theaters are equipped in accordance with the latest medical standards, including the latest models of devices for all types of laser surgery.

That is why turning to the ophthalmological center abroad makes more sense as the patient can be confident in the accuracy of diagnosis, safety and effectiveness of medical care provided to him.


The diagnostic equipment of advanced medical centers helps to determine the state of the optic nerve and internal media of the eye with high detail, to fix the intraocular pressure and various deviations in the anatomical structures of the eye.


For example, the HRA OCT system of optical coherent tomography with fluorescent angiography of the retina helps to determine the state of the retina with visualization of the smallest structures with a resolution of up to 3 microns.

This makes it possible to diagnose pathology long before the development of clinical manifestations (symptoms). A technology HRT II – retinal tomography, is used to diagnose the condition of the optic nerve and the entire macular region.


New surgical approaches in the treatment of glaucoma are successfully used in the foreign clinics. Procedures such as microsurgery, laser microsurgery and cryosurgery are actively used, which makes it possible to safely restore the normal outflow of fluid from the eye chambers (by eliminating the cause of the outflow disturbance), thereby reducing the intraocular pressure.


For many years, laser surgery has been used to correct the pathology of refraction (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism).


Variety of laser correction techniques and approaches have been developed on the latest laser systems IFS Visex, Argon Laser, iLasik, etc.


Opthalomology Abroad. Most Common Procedures

Microsurgical operations for the treatment of cataracts are well developed, the purpose of which is to destroy (phacoemulsification) and remove the clouded lens through micro incisions followed by the installation of an intraocular optical lens (IOL) – the so-called “artificial lens”. The clinics use only certified materials from the world’s leading manufacturers Alcon (USA), Carl Zeiss (Germany), Rumex (Britain). Among other diseases, the treatment of which is available in foreign clinics: diabetic retinopathy of the retina, keratoconus, retinal detachment and retinal tear, dry eye syndrome, amblyopia, presbyopia, strabismus.

    Special attention is paid to the treatment of eye tumors and surrounding tissues in foreign ophthalmological centers, oculoplastic operations and orbital surgery. The method of artificial or donor cornea transplantation (keratoplasty) is actively used. In the treatment of oncology of the eyes there is use of modern surgical, chemotherapeutic and radiological tactics, the main purpose of which is to preserve the organ of sight itself in cases where this is possible.


Highly specialized ophthalmologic clinics today are in many countries, but the most famous and prominent specialists in this field practice in medical centers of the European Union (Germany, Austria, Spain, Lithuania, etc.), countries of the Middle East (Turkey, Israel).
