For example, in vitro fertilization treatment in the United States is approximately 15.000 to 16.000 USD, 2600 USD in Turkey; laser myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism ranged from medical operations such as in European countries from 4000 to 8000 EUR, 600 EUR in Turkey; open heart surgery this price level, while the average in European countries is 25,000 EUR 10,000 USD in first class hospitals in Turkey.
