      Cataract Surgery Frequently Asked Questions

      Cataract surgery is a surgical procedure performed when the transparent lens in the eye becomes cloudy and reduces vision quality. Cataracts are generally associated with aging, but other conditions can also lead to this issue. During the surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and most often replaced with an artificial lens, significantly improving the person's vision quality.


      The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, and the patient can return home on the same day. Most people notice an immediate improvement after the surgery, but it may take a few weeks to achieve full vision quality. Cataract surgery is a common and successful procedure, but like any surgical intervention, it can involve some risks.

      Turkey is quite advanced in the field of healthcare, especially in eye diseases and surgery. It's also gaining increasing popularity in health tourism. Foreign patients choose Turkey for competitive prices and high-quality treatment options. Especially in big cities like Istanbul, cataract surgeries are performed with high success rates in hospitals.

      Various techniques are used in cataract surgeries in Turkey. 


      The most common is the Phacoemulsification method. In this method, the cataract lens is broken up with an ultrasonic device through a very small incision. Then, an artificial lens is placed. The surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, and most patients can return home the same day.

      Post-surgical eye care is very important after cataract surgery. Use protective glasses or an eye patch for the first few days after the surgery to protect your eye from dust and other external factors. Your doctor will likely prescribe some drops or medications to prevent infection and reduce inflammation. Follow these prescriptions strictly as per your doctor's instructions. Avoid lifting heavy objects for a few weeks after the surgery as it can increase intraocular pressure and harm the healing process.


      Rubbing your eye can negatively affect the outcome of the surgery. If you feel itching or discomfort, consult your doctor. Avoid exposing your eye to water for the first few days after surgery to reduce the risk of infection. Your doctor will likely want to check on you regularly. Not missing these check-ups is important to ensure the success of the surgery and to check for any complications.


      These are general recommendations, and specific situations and doctor's advice can vary for each patient. Always follow your doctor's instructions and communicate with your doctor if you have any doubts. The recovery process after cataract surgery is usually very successful and greatly improves the quality of life for many people.

      Bathing after cataract surgery is a critical issue that requires careful attention. During the initial days after the surgery, protect your eyes from water and soap. You can usually use a waterproof eye patch or protective glasses for this.


      When showering, ensure that water does not directly hit your face or eyes. Wash by tilting your head back and keeping water away from your eyes. Some people make this process more controlled by using a low setting on the showerhead or using a cup.


      When washing your face, try to avoid touching the area around your eyes. Wiping your face with a damp cloth can be a safer method. Be careful not to let shampoo get into your eyes when washing your hair. This can be done using an eye patch or protective glasses.


      For the first few weeks after surgery, your doctor will likely advise you to avoid environments like pools and seas, as the risk of infection is higher in these places.

      The recovery process after cataract surgery varies from person to person. Initially, for the first few days after surgery, there may be mild discomfort, blurriness, or sensitivity to light in the eye. This is completely normal and considered a natural part of the surgery. These symptoms will decrease as your eye heals.


      The final recovery period usually varies from a few weeks to a few months. Most people notice a significant improvement in vision within a few days, but it may take a bit longer for the eye to fully heal and achieve stable vision quality. During this period, it's important to use the prescribed eye drops and not miss your check-ups.


      A month later, your eye is expected to have largely healed, but it may take up to 3 months for complete stabilization. During this time, consult your doctor immediately if you have any complications or concerns.


      Everyone's body and healing process is different, so it's important to pay attention to your doctor's specific advice. If you notice any significant changes such as pain, excessive redness, or vision loss, it's recommended to consult your doctor.
