Have you been asking yourself the question of why would people get onto a plane and travel to Thailand to have a LASIK procedure? We are here to answer that question and any other questions you may have. People are willing to travel to Thailand for LASIK because the country offers many benefits that cannot be found anywhere else. What are these benefits? Keep reading to find out.

Ultra-modern hospitals with advanced technology

Hospitals in Thailand that offers LASIK has the most advanced technology and techniques to perform the procedure. Hospitals such as Bumrungrad International Hospital have a new laser procedure that uses a femtosecond laser, which is a laser that emits superfast laser pulses in units of one femtosecond. With traditional LASIK, a microkeratome (blade) is used to cut the corneal flap. However, the femtosecond laser LASIK uses a laser to create the flap instead of a metal blade. This increases precision in both size and shape while also reduces complications. The femtosecond laser creates the flap without any impact or transfer of heat to the surrounding tissue. In addition, the procedure is a lot faster to complete (about 15 minutes for both eyes) and requires little recovery time. Many hospitals also offer a type of LASIK known as the Ultimate LASIK, which targets previous aberrations in your eye and retains your normal eye shape to prevent any new vision impairment in the future.

Cost-effective

If LASIK is too expensive in your home country, you really should have it performed in Thailand, at an internationally accredited hospital, such as Samitijev Thonburi Hospital and Laser Vision International LASIK Center, you can undergo LASIK for only about $2,319 to $2,584. Even when you add in travel and accommodation, the overall costs will still be less expensive than in developed countries, such as the United States and Australia. Where else in the world can you get modern, high-quality LASIK, for a super cheap price like in Thailand?

Excellent patient service

The staff and medical team in most hospitals in the country are trained and experienced to handle foreign patients. They will ensure that you experience the highest level of comfort. The staff can also adjust your LASIK procedure to fit your schedule. As a foreign patient, you probably do not have an extended period of time to stay in Thailand. This is why, as part of their service, hospitals in Thailand ensure that their LASIK is efficient and fast, so you don’t have to travel back and forth between Thailand and your home country just for follow-up appointments. Furthermore, many top-notch hospitals in the country are equipped with first-class rooms, amazing onsite restaurants, and translator services for those who can’t speak Thai or English.

Tropical paradise

Since LASIK requires little to no downtime, you can easily combine your procedure with an entire vacation. As we all know, Thailand is a true tropical paradise. Its combination of exotic islands, stunning beaches, lively cities, and amazing culture attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. Getting a LASIK in Thailand means you can spend your recovery time in this tropical paradise. Of course, only if your doctor allows you to.
