The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Glaucoma Treatment

When drugs and laser treatments do not reduce eye pressure adequately, doctors may recommend conventional surgery for patients. The most common of these surgeries is trabeculectomy used in both open-angle and closed-angle glaucomas.

For patients with severe Glaucoma, performing trabeculectomy with cataract surgery may result in reduced eye pressure...

Not Recommended For Glaucoma Treatment

If priority glaucoma treatments are insufficient to keep your Glaucoma under control, and if your general health is available, your doctor will check and decide whether you are eligible for surgery

Minimum Stay

2 to 7 days

Overview

A glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve that carries information from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, pills, laser surgery, conventional surgery, or a combination of these methods if diagnosed early. Especially with surgical glaucoma treatment, most people with Glaucoma are treated without losing sight. The aim of these treatments is to prevent visual loss because the visual loss from glaucoma is irreversible.

 

 

There are two major categories of Glaucoma, which are open-angle Glaucoma and narrow-angle glaucoma. The "angle" in these terms refers to the drainage angle inside the eye that controls the outflow of the watery fluid which is repeatedly being produced inside the eye.

Preparation

Patients need to be sure to discuss their current medications, any health conditions, the device they use such as contact lenses with their doctor so together they can manage their health and/or vision concerns during the glaucoma treatment process.

How It Is Performed

All glaucoma surgery procedures are designed to achieve one of two main outcomes: reduce intraocular fluid production or increase the outflow (drainage) of the same fluid. To increase the drainage of the intraocular fluid, ophthalmologists perform laser trabeculoplasty to create small holes in the perforation angle of the eye where the cornea and iris meet. As a second option, ophthalmologists can recommend a surgical incision in the drainage system of the eye to create new channels for more normal fluid flow. This procedure involves partial removal of the drainage system of the eye. Glaucoma surgeries may be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia.The laser procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes while trabeculectomy takes from 30 to 60 minute

Recovery

After surgery, the patient's eye may be red and watery, and vision may become blurred for up to 6 weeks. During the recovery period of glaucoma treatment, patients are advised to keep their eye dry and avoid driving, reading, and heavy lifting for at least one week.

Risks

Glaucoma surgeries may include some possible risks and complications such as:

  • Cataract
  • Incision infection or leakage
  • Very low pressure
  • Bleeding in the eye

After surgery, the new drainage pathway opened by surgery may close and cause the pressure in the eye to rise again.

Side Effects

As with any type of surgery, there are side effects for glaucoma surgery, as well. They include:

 

  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Excessive tearing
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Low Eye Pressure
  • Vision loss
  • Scarring

Success Rates

According to the studies conducted to measure patient satisfaction after the glaucoma surgery, 80% of patients are satisfied or very satisfied with their short and long-term outcomes.

Before And After

Since Glaucoma is insidiously progressive and may be too late to treat, periodic eye examinations are important for early diagnosis. Especially in the early stages of Glaucoma diagnosed, treatments provide very successful results.

Faq

What Is Glaucoma Treatment?

Glaucoma is a serious eye condition which results from excessive pressure in the eye. Glaucoma develops painless and invisible and is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, after cataracts. This insidious disease is detected too late, generally after the optic nerve has already been damaged. Glaucoma treatment aims to reduce eye pressure and prevent visual loss before it becomes irreversible.

 

 

Can Glaucoma Treatment Prevent Blindness?

If it is left untreated, Glaucoma can cause blindness. Glaucoma treatment cannot reverse the damageof eye nerves that have already occurred, but it can prevent further vision loss.

 

Is Glaucoma Treatment Successful?

Surgical glaucoma treatment is often very successful at significantly slowing the progression of Glaucoma and achieving the expected and desired eye pressure. However, if Glaucoma left untreated, it is almost certain that vision will be lost.
