Iran Has the World's Record for Eye Surgery

Eye surgery is one of the most sensitive types of surgery performed in the form of open surgery or laser surgery by the ophthalmologist on the eye or adnexa. The ophthalmologist is responsible for choosing the procedure. Eye surgeries have various types that sometimes aim to improve vision and sometimes relieve specific complications. The most common of these surgeries include cataracts, refractive errors (such as LASIK, PRK…), retina treatment and emergency cases. Despite the sensitivity of eye surgeries, these types of surgeries are now widely used with techniques that reduce the risk of surgery. Since many nerves are involved in eye surgeries, local anesthesia is usually performed, and general anesthesia is often used for children.
Iranian ophthalmologists are aware of the latest global achievements and strive to guide you in the best possible way, from consultation to the next steps of eye surgery. Eye service providers in Iran are fully aware of your priorities and will provide the best referral, proper diagnosis, correct information and recommendations, proper treatment and follow-up, and future care. Regular evaluation of the patient's treatment process is done by them, and they will be able to identify problems and make useful changes when you make suggestions and criticisms. According to Tabnak news agency, Iran set a world record in 2012 with 450 eye surgeries a day. These surgeries were performed at Farabi Hospital in Tehran.
