I am only just under 2 wks since my surgery and my breathing has improved tenfold. Before I was always run down with infections, sore heads and vertigo but apart from some surgical pain all the symptoms that blighted me for 12 years have gone completely and my sleep pattern has improved massively. When I got off the plane I was met and from there I was taken to my hotel and picked up and taken for all my tests then allowed to carry on my stay, the nurses, surgeons were 1st class throughout, so professional. I got a fantastic 9 days of sun and my surgery done for at least 1k cheaper than in UK and was given notice of every pending appointment I had at the hospital and although there was communication I put that down to the fact I'm from Scotland but it was never an issue. The hotel was fine overlooking the beach and transport to and from hospital was there for every appointment on time. Covid precautions were taken with tests and wearing of masks by all the locals a common theme more so than in the UK. Doctors where fantastic and very friendly explaining all stages of my procedure, cleanliness, and modern consultation rooms a feature as can be seen in this picture. I recommend to a friend definitely even though I was there for surgery I still had time to enjoy the sun and certainly given my experiences in the UK I can't thank Formedi and its employees enough for firstly giving me my life back, my health and for an experience I'll never forget.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Medically trained doctors who care for patients who have eye and vision conditions are called ophthalmologists and are the only practitioners diagnosed and trained to treat all eye and vision problems. Their practice is very diverse, dealing with a wide range of issues and clinical conditions. Some of the most common conditions that they treat and manage include:
An ophthalmologist can offer a wide range of medical services, including surgical eye procedures. Some of the most common procedures that ophthalmologists perform are as follows:
Your length of stay depends on the type of treatment you undergo. In general, you may need to stay in Turkey for at least a week or to let your eyes recover and to attend follow-up checkups, where your ophthalmologist checks your condition and make sure that your eyes are healing properly. If everything is fine, they will allow you to leave for home. However, for some surgery, such as retinal detachment surgery, you should avoid flying until your eyes have fully healed. Therefore, it is best that you wait 3 to 4 weeks, sometimes even longer, before you travel home.
Recovery time depends on the type of surgery you underwent, your age, and overall health. It is generally recommended to rest your eyes for a few days. With LASIK, you may be able to return to work after a day. After a corneal transplant, you should wait for 2 to 3 weeks until you go back to work.
Your ophthalmologist will give you instructions to care for your eye after the procedure. It is crucial that you follow all of them to have a quick recovery and obtain optimum results. To keep the result or to prevent complications, you will need to make some lifestyle changes, such as avoid smoking and staying active. You also need to attend regular checkups, typically once a year, with your local eye doctor or your ophthalmologist in Turkey.
Thanks to the continuous advancement of ophthalmology, eye treatments, and surgeries are now highly successful and safe. For instance, the latest research of LASIK showed that it has a 99% success rate in achieving 20/40 vision or better, whereas the success rate of corneal transplant is as high as 90%. However, it is important to be aware of the risks and side effects of eye treatments and surgeries, such as dry eyes, temporary visual problems, overcorrections, under correction, astigmatism, regression, and, very rarely, vision loss.
For some eye problems, you may be able to go to an optometrist as an alternative. However, if your conditions need to be treated through surgery, your optometrist will refer you to an ophthalmologist.
