LASIK is an elective eye surgery that uses laser technology to reshape the inner cornea to correct vision if you are farsighted, nearsighted or have astigmatism. The procedure leads to a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence. In many cases, patients no longer require them after the surgery.
The cost of LASIK surgery in most the West ranges between $1,500 to $4,000 per eye. These numbers have resulted in Westerners travelling to Singapore in droves for affordable LASIK treatment. However, cost is not the only factor you’ll find to be satisfying when you go on medical travel to Singapore. Boasting a world-class healthcare system, Singapore also offers better quality care than the West.
Singapore has a wealth of highly qualified eye and retina surgeons, with a majority of them having trained in top medical schools in the West. Thus, the quality of procedures is on par with those done in the West. In addition, Singapore has invested heavily in modern medical equipment, and has numerous accredited clinics and hospitals with world-class facilities. Because of these, the country has gained immense popularity for its developments in LASIK surgery.
Ophthalmologists in Singapore use only the most advanced LASIK technology such as Custom Bladeless Lasik with wavefront technology that greatly reduces the risk of complications. It also has higher success rate of restoring 20/20 vision than conventional methods.
Internationally trained ophthalmologists, world-class health care system, and state of the art medical infrastructure make Singapore the best medical travel destination for LASIK surgery.
