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.

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.
