Doing Lasik at Thai eye center is very safe. The service is excellent. I have brighter vision than before.
I got a very short-sighted of -10 diopters. I always wearing contact lens as wearing glasses made me feel dizzy. When I slept and woke up with contact lens, my eyes became dry and red. The Lasik procedure took less than 30 minutes. My vision has brightly changed. It is a precious happiness to me.
I'm sitting at my computer in Bangkok today. Two days ago I had my eyes' lens replaced. And last night I read a menu at the local restaurant that Cassie couldn't read. I'm excited. Very excited. Cassie found the Thai Eye Clinic on the Net. I had my tests one day in the space of 30 minutes, the next day I was in theatre, and the next day I returned for the operation on my second eye. I had my tests one day in the space of 30 minutes, the next day I was in theatre, and the next day I returned for the operation on my second eye. The process involves cutting a small hole in the side of the eye about the size of a ballpoint pen. Through this hole the specialist inserts a tube to DISSOLVE my old natural lens, and then inserts a new manufactured, optically correct, UV light stabilized acrylic lens. And here's the most amazing part; as long as your astigmatism isn't seriously advanced, (mine wasn't) you can have a multifocal lens. For those of you unfamiliar with the advantages of multifocal glasses, allow me to explain. A multifocal lens has different (but graduated) areas with different optics to cater for shortcomings in both your long and short sightedness The big difference you need to get used to in Thai medicine is the service. It's fantastic! The Thai people are naturally gentle and considerate so a health services industry in Thailand is a match made in Heaven. You would simply not believe the efficiency, the courtesy and the care given apart from a bout of primal terror causing me to grip the operating table like a life raft from the Titanic, there was NO pain, and the operation was over in half an hour. Sight was fuzzy for a day, but here I am, reading, seeing, enjoying, taking long, long looks at my beautiful partner... thank you Thailand!
I came from California to have cataract surgery and lens implant at Thai Eye Center because I am confident in same high quality of treatment as in US, skilled doctors, but at lower cost.
