About the department

The department of ophthalmology at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul specializes in treating diseases of the eye and its appendages. Before prescribing individual treatment, ophthalmologists need to assess the eye's health and appendages and check visual acuity. The department has modern diagnostic complexes for refractokeratometry, tonometry for measuring intraocular pressure, direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, biomicroscopy and other studies. The department treats patients of various age groups - from infants to the elderly. Pediatric ophthalmologists perform diagnostics 1-2 months after birth to exclude or confirm ophthalmic pathologies such as congenital cataracts, glaucoma or lacrimal duct obstruction. It should be noted that the department specialists also have excellent qualifications in diagnosing and treating retinopathy of prematurity.

Essential attention in clinical practice is given to refractive eye surgery, surgical treatment of cataracts, glaucoma, corneal and retinal diseases, neuro-ophthalmic diseases, correction of strabismus, and plastic surgery outside the eyeball (oculoplasty). The department is equipped with advanced medical equipment for high-precision diagnosis of eye pathologies and effective treatment of any degree of complexity. Surgical interventions are performed by experienced ophthalmic surgeons fluent in classical and innovative techniques.
