Eye treatment and ophthalmology

Thousands of cosmetic surgeries are performed in Tunisia. This beautiful Mediterranean country has become a center of medical tourism. Cosmetic procedures include cataract surgery, lasik,.

At Med Assistance we work with the best surgeons in Tunisia. Physicians who specialize in ophthalmology have surgical experience as well as experience in pre-treatment and long-term follow-up.

Indeed, eye care and ophthalmology are highly developed sectors in Tunisia. There is no difference between an operation performed in Europe and an operation performed in Tunisia. In addition, thousands of patients, taking advantage of the wonderful climate of Tunisia, have chosen the treatment of eyes and ophthalmology in one of the Tunisian clinics.


Laser vision correction (laser keratomileusis in situ) is a surgical procedure aimed at the eyes that corrects vision problems.

Technically, the surgeon starts by folding the outer layer of the cornea (the epithelium) and then reshapes the curvature of the cornea with an excimer laser (also called an exciplex laser). The outer layer then needs to be put back in place so that it naturally attaches to the eye. it is a cosmetic procedure that has been made safe and easy by advances in medicine.

Indeed, Lasik's success rate is very high in XNUMX, which explains its popularity. Many patients no longer wear glasses after surgery because they correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism.

The goal of Lasik is to give the patient complete autonomy without glasses or contact lenses. This aesthetic intervention eliminates dependence on optical correction. Thus, vision is most often closer to what it was before the operation, even before the operation, i.e. slightly better than glasses.

Increased eye sensitivity after Lasik

Immediately after the operation, there is transient dryness of the eyes for several weeks. As a result, the introduction of artificial tears is necessary to solve this small problem. Indeed, Lasik does not increase the risk of infection or inflammation, and the operation does not weaken the eye. However, the eyes should not be rubbed during the healing period to avoid displacement of the flap.

Cataract surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens, the surgeon places the lens inside the eye, behind the pupil through which vision passes. Normally, the lens is transparent and allows you to focus the image on the retina - the visual zone lining the back wall of the eye, which captures visual information and transmits it to the brain. When the lens becomes cloudy, light can no longer pass through it and vision becomes blurry. That is why it is necessary to undergo cataract surgery.

In "Med Assistance" the operation is safe. Cataract surgery is a master of our surgeon, who has the skills and experience that allow him to influence the results in many ways.

  • Extraction of the diseased lens:

The first step in the procedure is to open the lens capsule and remove the clouded lens. This takes place in a sterile surgical environment and under a microscope in 2 steps: removal of the diseased lens and implantation of a new lens. This process is carried out using ultrasound. The surgeon makes a small incision of 3 mm, through which he passes an ultrasonic probe, which destroys the diseased lens, fragmenting it. The fragments are then aspirated with a microprobe.

  • Implantation of a new lens:

After removing the diseased lens, the surgeon implants a new one. The lens shell (capsule) is left in place so that the lens can be placed in the eye. By bending the synthetic lens, the surgeon passes through a small
