Eye Disorders

Eyelid surgery

known medically as blepharoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures, with about 100,000 men and women undergoing the procedure in the United States every year. Surgeons perform eyelid surgery to correct droopy, hooded upper eyelids and puffy lower lids that make the face look tired and older. In some people, the upper eyelids sag so much that they impair vision. (In this case, eyelid surgery may be covered by health insurance because it is not performed only to improve appearance.)

In blepharoplasty, the surgeon removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper or lower lids, or both. Eyelid surgery does not remove dark circles from under the eyes, erase fine lines such as crow’s feet, or lift sagging eyebrows. Sometimes doctors combine eyelid surgery with a forehead lift or a facelift to achieve better results

Laser Surgery

Laser eye surgery is an umbrella term for several eye surgeries used to correct refractive errors (i.e., how your eye focuses light). The most common types of laser eye surgery include LASIK, PRK, LASEK, EpiLASIK and FEMTOLASIK


The hard conjunctiva in front of the eyes changes the transparent layer of the cornea. The cornea provides a clear vision and helps focus light into the eyes, making vision possible. It also protects the eye from air pollution. To have a clear and accurate vision, the cornea needs to be healthy, smooth, and dome-shaped.

A damaged cornea disturbs focusing light into the eye and leads to a glared vision. To treat this problem, some primary treatments are advised by some ophthalmologists. Yet, if the cornea cannot be healed or repaired, a cornea transplant is a solution.

The history of corneal transplant in Iran goes back to a long time ago. Iran has not only been a pioneer in performing such procedures but also has earned a great reputation in this specialty, devising new transplantation methods over the recent years.

The country is now home to many renowned eye surgeons, well-equipped transplant centers, and eye banks. This has made Iran a perfect choice for those who are looking for an effective corneal transplant abroad. Before going any further into this subject, let us elaborate more on the procedure itself.
