Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Overview

Cataract surgery is a very common procedure used to treat cataract condition, which refers to the clouding of the natural lens of the eye, often leading to a decrease in the patient's vision. Cataract, which can affect one eye or both, usually develops slowly, over a long period of time. Cataract symptoms include one or more of the following: 

● Blurry vision 
● Less vivid color vision
● Halos around light 
● Trouble seeing at night 

Patients suffering from cataract have a problem, especially with reading, driving, and recognizing faces. Although most cataracts are related to aging, the condition is also linked to depression and an increased risk of accidents such as falling. By age 80, more than half of all Americans have a cataract or have had cataract surgery, and cataract currently causes 50% of the world’s blindness. 


Cataract can be caused by one or more of the following: 

● Age 
● Trauma to the natural lens of the eye 

● Depression
● Radiation 
● Genetics 
● Skin diseases 
● Smoking 
● Medications 

Other factors that can cause cataract and ultimately lead to cataract surgery, include: 

● Diabetes 
● Hypertension 
● Poor nutrition 
● High alcohol intake 

●Hormone replacement therapy

● High myopia


 

Although early cataract symptoms may be corrected by wearing glasses, many people require cataract surgery in order to regain their vision. They choose to undergo cataract surgery by evaluating various cost alternatives in (usually) private clinics where successful surgeons are involved. 

Preparation

Patients need to have a detailed eye examination before undergoing cataract eye surgery or cataract surgery. In some cases, cataract surgery may not be needed if the patient has a satisfactory functional vision and/or other procedures may be required before the cataract surgery option.

How It Is Performed

Cataract eye surgery or cataract surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia. The eye is numbed with an injection or by using anesthetic eye drops. 

During cataract surgery, a cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens. The eye doctor firstly creates two incisions into the clear cornea of the patient. A circular hole is then created into the capsule where the artificial lens is located. At this point, ultrasound waves may be used to liquefy the lens, after which it is removed. The soft outer layer of the cataract is also removed. Saline solution is inserted into the front part of the eye to help it maintain its shape. A plastic lens is then inserted into the eye where the natural lens used to be. The eye doctor may also inject antibiotics in that area in order to prevent any risk of infections

Recovery

The cataract surgery recovery time is usually quite short. Patients can leave the hospital in one or two days. Heavy physical activities and lifting need to be avoided for around 4 weeks after the cataract surgery. Doctors recommend wearing an eye shield, especially while sleeping for a few days after the procedure.Patients need to be followed the cataract surgery aftercare carefully advises given by their doctors to have a comfortable recovery

Risks

Cataract surgery complications and risks include: 

● Infection 
● Retinal detachment 
● Endophthalmitis 
● Glaucoma 
● Bleeding in the eye 

● Damage to other parts of your eye
● Loss of vision 
● Secondary cataract

Side Effects

Cataract surgery side effects include: 

● Inflammation in the eye’s region 
● Itchiness in the eye’s region 
● Swelling 
● Pain and discomfort 
● Dry eyes

● Double vision

● High or low eye pressure

Success Rates

Cataract surgery studies and reviews determine the average success rate between 85% and 92%. In general, approximately 95% of patients are satisfied with the results of this procedure.

Before And After

Patients may still require glasses on certain occasions, even after cataract surgery. If the patient has a cataract in both eyes, two surgeries need to be performed at an interval of around 2 months. Patients can drive 24 hours after cataract surgery. After the procedure, patients usually experience improved vision and increased mobility.Although eyes are highly sensitive organs, cataract surgery is not a painful procedure. No pain is felt during the operation due to anesthesia, and mild to moderate pain after surgery can be easily relieved with prescription drugs
