Patients who are diagnosed with cataracts require a surgery called Phacoemulsification to restore their vision. In this procedure, the cataracts are removed by breaking down the eye’s natural lens, which is then replaced with an Intraoccular lens.
As with any type of surgical procedure, the chance of success relies heavily on the skills of the surgeon and surgical equipment they’re using. When compared to first-world countries, Indonesia’s healthcare system is considered inferior in many aspects. This is the main reason why a good number of patients from Indonesia consider traveling to the United States and Europe where the standards of health care are far more excellent. However, if you are concerned about the cost, your other option is to travel to Singapore where the quality of health care is at par or even better than what is offered in western countries but the costs are up to 75% cheaper.
Singapore has a long list of board-certified, highly experienced ophthalmologists who are offering their expertise and services in world-class hospitals and specialist eye centres using the most advanced technologies and clinically-proven techniques, ensuring the success of the operation.
Despite receiving the same level of quality eye care, you can expect to pay significant less amount of money when you travel to Singapore, as the cost of Phacoemulsification with Intraoccular Lenses is 75% cheaper when compared to the United States. In addition, you’ll be able to save hundreds to thousands of dollars on associated travel costs such as airfare and accommodation.
