Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For LASIK Eye Surgery

Patients suffering from myopia or short-sightedness can benefit greatly from LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is also a solution for patients that suffer from hyperopia and astigmatism.

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

30 to 60 minutes

Minimum Stay

Patients can usually fly soon after LASIK

Before You Leave

Before you leave for LASIK eye surgery, it’s a good idea to inform your eye doctor about your travel and the procedure you plan on having. Your ophthalmologist may also give you a quick check-up before you leave and also offer some advice.

Preparation

It’s recommended that you stop wearing contact lenses and makeup at least a few days before going in for LASIK. Contact lenses may damage the cornea and makeup may interfere with the LASIK procedure.

Risks

Although rare, LASIK surgery complications can appear. Patients that decide to have LASIK laser eye surgery must be careful and follow the doctor’s recommendation thoroughly in order to avoid potential: 
● Eye infection – during the recovery period it’s recommended not to swim in the sea or ocean. If you do get an eye infection, it can be easily treated with antibiotics. 
● Corneal membrane wrinkles – if you rub your eyes, squeeze or practice contact sports you may end up with a wrinkled corneal membrane which in turn leads to decreased vision. 
● Ectasia – it usually appears in 1 in 15.000 patients after LASIK surgery. 

Success Rates

LASIK is one of the most common laser eye surgeries used to correct refractive errors. Post-operatory LASIK patient reviews set the success rates between 92% and 98%. This is the reason why LASIK gained so much popularity in recent years.

Before And After

It’s very important to mention that there are no known long term side effects from LASIK surgery. It’s also worthy to mention the fact that LASIK does not guarantee perfect vision, although many patients do obtain it after a few weeks from surgery.

LASIK Eye Surgery Alternatives

While LASIK offers great results for a large number of patients, it also comes with certain requirements. Patients who are unable to undergo LASIK surgery have some alternatives available to them. Here are the best LASIK alternatives available for patients.

Wavefront Guided LASIK

Wavefront guided LASIK uses computer imaging technology to create a 3D model of the patient’s cornea. This map is then used to program the excimer laser with more accuracy, since wavefront technology provides highly precise measurements of the patient’s cornea. This is the main reason why Wavefront guided LASIK provides patients with better results than glasses or traditional LASIK. Not only that, but this new technology has been proven to reduce post-op side effects such as contrast sensitivity and problems with night vision. A higher percentage of patients achieve near-perfect vision by undergoing Wavefront guided LASIK instead of the traditional procedure.

LASEK

LASEK eye surgery uses a micro-instrument called a trephine modify the epithelial corneal tissue, creating a flap. Alcohol solution is then applied to the area in order to further loosen the epithelial cells. The flap is then moved aside and the rest of the procedure is comparable to PRK eye surgery – the cornea is sculpted, the flap is repositioned before being secured in place with the help of a contact lens that will help with the healing process.

EpiLASIK

EpiLASIK uses a very small micro-keratome called an EpiKeratome to detach a small sheet of the epithelial tissue from the cornea itself. The sheet is then moved to the side and the procedure continues as with PRK treatment. This thin sheet will be moved back in its place, under a contact lens that will help the healing process.

CK or Conductive Keratoplasty

Conductive Keratoplasty is a minimally invasive thermal refractive procedure that’s usually performed on patients over 40 years old. This procedure is used to treat mild or moderate cases of hyperopia. Conductive Keratoplasty does not use a laser at all, but instead the doctor will use a micro-probe that releases radio frequency energy, applying heat to certain portions of the cornea. The extra heat will cause the cornea to shrink and tighten, increasing its curvature and improving eye sight. Conductive Keratoplasty can also be used to treat presbyopia for patients with fair vision but poor near focus. CK is unfortunately not a permanent solution and some patients may require further procedures.

Phakic Intraocular Lenses or IOLs

Phakic intraocular lenses are best suited for patients suffering from severe refractive errors that cannot be treated with surgery.  Phakic intraocular lenses are also called implantable contact lenses – these are placed in front of the eye’s natural lens, either in front or behind the iris. Once the lenses are inserted, the patient’s vision is corrected.

Refractive Lens Exchange or Clear Lens Extraction

Refractive Lens Exchange uses an artificial lens to replace the patient’s natural eye lens in order to improve their vision. This procedure is very similar to cataract surgery, with the addition of an artificial lens.
