My wife has been dealing with Mertcan Şenol of Med Aid  in Lekosa for over 12 months now and his service is getting progressively better and better. His English speaking is excellent and his knowledge about hearing aids is second to none!

Many readers have already taken up his high quality service and all have reported an excellent level of satisfaction. He now offers the very latest in hearing aid technology enabling people to improve their sense of hearing. The latest hearing aid technology is a model called Widex which goes under the name of UNIQUE;

What makes UNIQUE better than other hearing aids? Firstly, it has a “sound picture”Widex – so you can hear both soft and loud sound, in comfort. Secondly it has the very latest wind noise reduction system available, so even in a windy environment you can still hear speech and sound clearly.

Thirdly, it detects your listening situation automatically and makes sure you hear the right sound at the right time and in the right place.

All Dağlı Sigorta customers have access to a 15% discount on any of his products purchased, together with a free hearing assessment. He also supplies auxiliary products such as batteries and repairs, when required. His latest offer is up to a further 15% discount when you part exchange your old hearing aid which is on top of the 15% Dağlı Sigorta discount.*

Why suffer the NHS service (if you are eligible) waiting some 2 years before you can be seen, together with the cost of flying to the UK only to get your appointment, delayed or postponed?

If your aid needs repairing, are you going to pay the expense of flying to the UK again and wait weeks or even months before it can be sorted?

For less than the cost of a flight to the UK, you can get the very latest hearing aid technology fitted here, for less than £6.50 per week, including a highly professional after sales back up service.

 Wedding Ring adjustment

Due to arthritis, my wife needed to have her wedding ring made larger as it was causing her finger to become extremely painful.

We called into a jewellers in the old town of Lefkosa, along the “green line” and not far from the pedestrian border crossing.

Sore ring fingerHe tried all the well known tricks of get the ring off her finger, but to no avail. He called a friend of his who came along with some cutters and a small hacksaw. Within a few minutes the ring came off and then he proceeded to go back to his work shop to make the necessary adjustment and  returned with it, in twenty minutes and popped the ring back onto my wife’s finger. You could not see the joins of the new piece and the ring was polished and looking like new. The cost of the ring adjustment, 20TL. And he supplied the coffee!!

We were both really impressed with his service and would certainly recommend him for this type of work. His shop is called Pirlant Kuyumcu, tel Mustafa on 0533 866 7070 and he speaks perfect English.


We had our two three seat sofa’s re-upholstered this month by Işikdöşeme located opposite the Starling supermarket in Alsancak. The work was first class and completed on time [10 working days]. Well worth considering if you need this type of work undertaken. The cost for all his work was only 1850TL.
