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.

Overview

Presbyopia treatment is a part of ophthalmology that deals with the effects and treatment of presbyopia. The patients who have presbyopia experience a weakened ability to focus on near objects. This condition can be confused with nearsightedness or myopia as well. Presbyopia causes a loss of elasticity in the eye lens and alters the lens’ curvature.

Some of the symptoms of presbyopia involve:

● Eyestrain
● Problems focusing on fine writing or small objects
● Difficulty seeing in dim light
● Patients often have headaches while reading

Usually, these symptoms are mostly experienced when the patient is around 40 or 50 years old. If presbyopia treatment is not performed, with aging the ability to focus the near objects is declined gradually. Also, after the age of 40, even the patients without previous eyesight issues might develop presbyopia. The patients with myopia would notice more decline in their ability to focus, even while wearing glasses or contact lenses.

The doctors can diagnose presbyopia with an eye examination. The doctor would be examining the patient's refractive power, the retina, the patient's visual acuity or sharpness of vision, and the condition of the patient's eye muscles.

Presbyopia is a very common condition which affects over a billion people around the world. Therefore, there is a need for a safe and reliable presbyopia treatment for many people.

Preparation

An eye examination is required to decide on the patient’s suitability for the presbyopia treatment since the condition is very similar to myopia. A couple of days before the presbyopia treatment, patients need to stop wearing contact lenses and makeup. Since contact lenses might be harmful to the cornea and the makeup may interfere with the presbyopia treatment.

How It Is Performed

Generally, presbyopia treatment is performed under local anesthesia. A very precise excimer laser is used for this procedure. As the anesthesia starts showing its effect, the doctors start using the excimer laser to reshape the cornea, thus correcting far, near and intermediate vision. The laser can be applied to one or both eyes. Also, the procedure takes only around 10 minutes. After the operation, the patients would regain their good vision at all distances.

Recovery

A day after the presbyopia treatment, patients can continue working and normal activities. A couple of weeks after the procedure, the patient can drive. Touching and rubbing the eyes should be avoided. Also, after the operation, swimming in the ocean is forbidden. After the operation in order to provide a successful process, the eye doctor would give the patients eye drops and a set of guidelines.

Risks

Presbyopia treatment has several risks and complications, which are an infection in the eye region and revision surgery.

Side Effects

Presbyopia treatment has several side effects which involve itchiness in the eyes, redness around the eyes, dry eyes, and increased sensitivity to light.

Success Rates

Presbyopia treatment has a success rate around 77%.

Before And After

After the operation, for some of the patients reading glasses might be needed in dim light, but many patients enjoy near-perfect vision in 2-3 weeks after the presbyopia treatment.

Faq

- Is the procedure painful?
No, the procedure does not cause pain to the patients, but mild discomfort caused by dry or itchy eyes can be experienced. These post-op effects of the presbyopia treatment are easily soothed with eye drops which will be provided by the eye doctor.

- Can it compromise the patient’s distance vision?
No, presbyopia treatment using the excimer laser has no ill effect on the patient’s distance vision. Even if the patient may be a part of the 23% that still relies on glasses after the surgery, the patient’s vision will not be affected in any way by the presbyopia treatment.

- How long do the effects of this procedure last?
The patients can benefit from the results of presbyopia surgery for 20-30 years. There is no limit to the effects of the presbyopia treatment. However, the patients might experience other sight issues such as cataract, but these conditions can be treated simply through other interventions.
