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 LASIK Eye Surgery

Patients suffering from myopia or short-sightedness can benefit greatly from LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is also a solution for patients that suffer from hyperopia and astigmatism.

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Duration Of Operation

30 to 60 minutes

Minimum Stay

Patients can usually fly soon after LASIK

Before You Leave

Before you leave for LASIK eye surgery, it’s a good idea to inform your eye doctor about your travel and the procedure you plan on having. Your ophthalmologist may also give you a quick check-up before you leave and also offer some advice.

Preparation

It’s recommended that you stop wearing contact lenses and makeup at least a few days before going in for LASIK. Contact lenses may damage the cornea and makeup may interfere with the LASIK procedure.

Risks

Although rare, LASIK surgery complications can appear. Patients that decide to have LASIK laser eye surgery must be careful and follow the doctor’s recommendation thoroughly in order to avoid potential: 
● Eye infection – during the recovery period it’s recommended not to swim in the sea or ocean. If you do get an eye infection, it can be easily treated with antibiotics. 
● Corneal membrane wrinkles – if you rub your eyes, squeeze or practice contact sports you may end up with a wrinkled corneal membrane which in turn leads to decreased vision. 
● Ectasia – it usually appears in 1 in 15.000 patients after LASIK surgery. 

Success Rates

LASIK is one of the most common laser eye surgeries used to correct refractive errors. Post-operatory LASIK patient reviews set the success rates between 92% and 98%. This is the reason why LASIK gained so much popularity in recent years.

Before And After

It’s very important to mention that there are no known long term side effects from LASIK surgery. It’s also worthy to mention the fact that LASIK does not guarantee perfect vision, although many patients do obtain it after a few weeks from surgery.

LASIK Eye Surgery Alternatives

While LASIK offers great results for a large number of patients, it also comes with certain requirements. Patients who are unable to undergo LASIK surgery have some alternatives available to them. Here are the best LASIK alternatives available for patients.

Wavefront Guided LASIK

Wavefront guided LASIK uses computer imaging technology to create a 3D model of the patient’s cornea. This map is then used to program the excimer laser with more accuracy, since wavefront technology provides highly precise measurements of the patient’s cornea. This is the main reason why Wavefront guided LASIK provides patients with better results than glasses or traditional LASIK. Not only that, but this new technology has been proven to reduce post-op side effects such as contrast sensitivity and problems with night vision. A higher percentage of patients achieve near-perfect vision by undergoing Wavefront guided LASIK instead of the traditional procedure.

LASEK

LASEK eye surgery uses a micro-instrument called a trephine modify the epithelial corneal tissue, creating a flap. Alcohol solution is then applied to the area in order to further loosen the epithelial cells. The flap is then moved aside and the rest of the procedure is comparable to PRK eye surgery – the cornea is sculpted, the flap is repositioned before being secured in place with the help of a contact lens that will help with the healing process.

EpiLASIK

EpiLASIK uses a very small micro-keratome called an EpiKeratome to detach a small sheet of the epithelial tissue from the cornea itself. The sheet is then moved to the side and the procedure continues as with PRK treatment. This thin sheet will be moved back in its place, under a contact lens that will help the healing process.

CK or Conductive Keratoplasty

Conductive Keratoplasty is a minimally invasive thermal refractive procedure that’s usually performed on patients over 40 years old. This procedure is used to treat mild or moderate cases of hyperopia. Conductive Keratoplasty does not use a laser at all, but instead the doctor will use a micro-probe that releases radio frequency energy, applying heat to certain portions of the cornea. The extra heat will cause the cornea to shrink and tighten, increasing its curvature and improving eye sight. Conductive Keratoplasty can also be used to treat presbyopia for patients with fair vision but poor near focus. CK is unfortunately not a permanent solution and some patients may require further procedures.

Phakic Intraocular Lenses or IOLs

Phakic intraocular lenses are best suited for patients suffering from severe refractive errors that cannot be treated with surgery.  Phakic intraocular lenses are also called implantable contact lenses – these are placed in front of the eye’s natural lens, either in front or behind the iris. Once the lenses are inserted, the patient’s vision is corrected.

Refractive Lens Exchange or Clear Lens Extraction

Refractive Lens Exchange uses an artificial lens to replace the patient’s natural eye lens in order to improve their vision. This procedure is very similar to cataract surgery, with the addition of an artificial lens.
