It is important to make regular visits – at least twice a year – to an optician so that common eye care can be performed before they even lead to blindness or vision loss. More often than not, adults tend to have more vision problems than children.
But this doesn’t mean that children should be excluded from eye care services. Whether it’s an adult or a juvenile, early treatment is critically important as it can prevent some eye diseases that may not have warning signs. And sometimes if you wait for the symptoms, the vision problem may be irreversible.
We, as Flymedi, are partners of expert Opticians who have more than 15 years of experience in treating eye diseases such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. Most people avoid going for routine eye checkups because they can’t afford them.
And this is the core reason we partnered with expert Opticians who can render their services at an affordable price. In fact, if you have an eye treatment in Turkey, you’re more likely to save 80% of what you could have spent in the US, UK, New Zealand, Australia, or Canada.
Eyecare is a broad specialty and as such, encompasses a wide range of procedures.
You're a good candidate for eye treatment if you're suffering from a medical condition that affects your sight and you're in good health.
But to receive cosmetic eye treatments (like LASIK), you must be at least 18 years of age, have been using prescribed eyeglasses for more than two years, and have no history of corneal diseases.
The duration of eye surgery procedures varies depending on the treatment. For example, LASIK eye treatment surgery takes 15 minutes per eye. While Cataract surgery takes 15 - 30 minutes.
Potential sides effects that you could experience after laser eye treatment surgery include:
The recovery period will differ from one patient to another, and it depends on the extent of the procedure. Before you're discharged, your doctor will provide you with the instruction you need to speed up your recovery.
Most eye surgeries need a recovery period of between three to five weeks. Expect to return to normal activities within four weeks.
Eye treatment success rate varies depending on the procedure. For instance, LASIK surgery has a success rate of 96%, while Cataract surgery has a success rate of 90%
