Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis, or simply referred to as LASIK, is one of the most popular eye surgery procedures in the world. The success rate is extremely high, and those who have undergone the procedure regain much of whatever they had lost in terms of eyesight.
When LASIK was first discovered, it was mostly available only in the West. However, the technology has now become widely available to rest of the world. This is particularly so in Southeast Asia where the cost of such a procedure is at an affordable 25% of the prices charged in the US – one of the reasons why medical tourism is on the rise there.
Apart from that, some of the best hospitals in the Southeast Asian region provide quality care that’s equal to what patients normally receive in the West. Medical institutions there have been investing heavily in modern medical technologies and huge improvements were seen on the infrastructure and facilities front.
Countless people from all over the world can attest to the quality of services that Southeast Asian hospitals provide. In fact, having LASIK performed at one of the best hospitals in the region is not much different from receiving the procedure in a Western hospital. In some ways, it can even be a better choice due to the low cost of the procedure and high level of quality care that the institutions provide.
