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!

● Patients born with a larger diameter pupil or a very thin cornea

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.
