The patient was treated of myopia

The level and quality of medicine is quite high. The doctor is fully competent. I liked the work of the coordinator and the manager, directly in the clinic. It was not possible to be in the wards.

It is necessary to find out if the medical center you are interested in, has a license to provide the medical services that you need.

Best eye treatment in the world. Laser correction of vision LASIK

The most common and the most effective type of ophthalmology treatments is laser surgery LASIK. Ophthalmologists of medical centers in Germany, Turkey, India and Israel perform this type of laser surgery with a success rate up to 95%.

The advantages of the vision correction with LASIK are:

  • The surgery is safe. Best ophthalmologists observe patients for a long time before and after the procedure. Observing helps doctors to prevent complications after the laser surgery.
  • Suitable for treatment of all types of visual impairment. If a patient has no contraindications, then laser correction can restore vision almost at all the most common degrees of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism,
  • Suitable for patients of any age. Patients aged 18 to 55 are the optimal candidates for this procedure.
  • The quickness of operating. The operating time of the laser surgery takes a few seconds - 1 minute. The rest of the time is spent on preoperative procedures and takes 10 minutes per eye.
  • The absence of pain at all stages of the operation. The ophthalmologists instill anesthetic drops in the eyes, which block pain sensitivity. A patient has only a feeling of pressure at some stages of the surgery.
  • The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Within an hour after the operation, a patient may come home.
  • Quick recovery of vision. 2 hours after the operation a patient can evaluate the first results of laser correction of vision. During 1 week, vision is stabilized.
  • Longevity of the operation results. After the laser correction of vision, the shape of the cornea persists for whole life. If a patient does not have progressive myopia, the result of the operation remains for many years.

The patient was treated of leukoma

The medical services was very good and the doctors also specially Ph. Schargus He explained to us every thing about my son's case and he advice us to meet the cornea surgeon Prof. Geerling, Head of the University Eye Hospital in Düsseldorf and arranged to meet him so i would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to you and the hospital staff for your great efforts and supports.

The patient was treated of retinal detachment

I have retina detachments issues therefore I applied this group of individuals. When we agreed there was one professor the one week prior to my arrival we retired and I was offered Dr. Shaudig whom i eventually never met. On meeting in the reception I was advised that said professor was ill today. So I was routinely and e consumer,inglese inspected by a couple of young 1doctors who told me nothing new in the end. The story cost me min 1000 Euros. For just nothing. It could look funny that such cases still occur in the 21 sr century in Western Europe. I was promised a report on my case from the Professor but I’m still looking forward to enjoy it. This circus took places in a Hamburg 28.11.17. Think twice everyone. Not all the gold that glitters

The patient underwent hair transplant

First of all, thanks to my coordinating doctor Maxim. Thanks to him, I came to this clinic. Everything went at the highest level. We met at the Airport, settled into the Hotel (excellent room), which is located 20 meters from the Clinic itself + everything was included tomorrow with a buffet that is located in the restaurant of the Hotel. The operation was easy and painless. The staff at the clinic is very attentive and caring. Upon completion, they were taken to the airport. I want to express my gratitude:  Doctor Cagatay Cebeci - was in touch with me 24/7 as well as in addition to the clinic, both on professional issues and on personal help.  Madame Safiye - conducted an inspection and came to check how the operation was going.  Secil and Sibel are professionals in their field, it was they who performed the hair transplant surgery, everything went quickly and easily. Two charismatic girls.  Thanks to all the staff, everyone was interested in how I was doing and whether everything looked fine with my hair. The driver made sure that I carefully sat down and got out of the car.
