Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Bangkok
Where is the best place to get laser eye surgery in Bangkok and how much does it cost ? Read On...
Laser Eye Surgery in Bangkok is something large numbers of people are choosing to opt for due to the quality of the medical care, quality of the doctors and the costs which can be considerably cheaper than in countries like the USA, UK, Australia and so on.
There are a number of places in Bangkok offering LASIK eye corrective surgery but we strongly recommend doing your own research before choosing where to have it done but we have listed a few which have a good reputation in and around the Bangkok area.
Bumrungrad Hospital is probably Bangkok's best hospital and therefore could be considered the best place to have laser eye surgery in Bangkok.
Laser surgery for a single eye at Bumrungrad currently costs 37,500 Baht which is about $1,220 or £780.00
The cost covers the following:
This is a special promotion routine outpatient treatment for single eye vision correction by LASIK (Laser Assisted Insitu Keratectomy) using the Excimer Laser and Keratome.
The Package Includes:
- OR Room Charge & Nursing Services: OR Room Use & Circulating Nurses
- Medical Equipment: Excimer Laser Source System, Keratome
- Medical Supplies and Medications necessary for the procedure
- Doctor Fee (Including six (6) months follow-up visit)
- Post Operation Visits: Necessary follow-up outpatient visits with the physician for a period of six (6) months after surgery; excluding take home medical supplies and medication.
- Redo’s: No charge for repeating the LASIK procedure for a period of six (6) months to correct vision which is greater than +/- 0.75 diopter off the target diopter.
There are some exclusions such as having uncontrolled diabetes, HIV and other medical conditions so check the conditions at Bumrungrad
before turning up.
If you contact the hospital, they will send you a comprehensive idea of what is required of you before you are considered suitable for laser eye surgery in Thailand. With this in mind, if you don't undergo such pre-questioning and tests, avoid the place at all costs.
Having your corrective laser eye surgery at Bumrungrad in Bangkok is now becoming quite common and relatively safe but it is not perfect so make sure you have a consultation before embarking on such a procedure.
Bumrungrad hospital is large and is more like a hotel than a hospital and so you'll be well taken care of...not just medically but also in comfort as well.
Bumrungrad can arrange accommodation for you through their International Center. Alternatively, book accommodation close to Bumrungrad at Agoda. Garanteed lowest prices.
Laser Vision - International LASIK Center
Laser vision International LASIK Center was established in 1998, with the ultimate goal of providing the best in LASIK service. When I asked my Thai friend, who knows about this kind of thing, where they'd recommend for this kind of procedure, she said that this is the best place and even recommended a doctor: Dr. Anan Wongthongsri
Laser Vision offers corrective laser eye surgery in Bangkok and is located on Ratchadapisek
Road which is fairly central Bangkok and can be reached via subway train.
A consultation of 1,500 is applicable and so is a recent HIV test !?
Laser Vision in Bangkok is now offering the new LV Signature LASIK which is "blade free" and uses the most advanced technology known as Femtosecond Laser and Laser Vision is proud to say it is the first private laser corrective surgery to acquire the Femtosecond Laser
Prices At Laser Vision Bangkok (examples):
On contacting Laser Vision, I got a fast and comprehensive reply although they quoted me for the higher laser eye surgery options: This is what I was quoted:
"Our price for traditional Microkeratome LASIK ranges from 73,000 THB to 79,500 THB for both eyes depending on the laser reshaping technology employed. For all laser FemtoLASIK with the Carl Zeiss VisuMax, the price is 115,000 THB for both eyes."
For ReLEx (Refractive Lenticule Extraction) is 135,000 THB for both eyes. All of our prices include the surgery as well as the usual postoperative medications and follow-up appointments. However, please note that these prices apply only to those who have never had LASIK, PRK, or any other type of refractive surgery before. In addition to the surgery package, the pre-operative eye examination is 1,700 THB.
TRSC International Lasik Center, Bangkok
Another recommended Lasik laser eye treatment center in Bangkok is TRSC International Lasik Center
which is located at the U Chu Liang Building on RAMA 4 road which is also the HSBC bank building.
There is a 3 - 4 hour preliminary exam to determine your suitability including a video which is good as this is the kind of preliminary exam a colleague of min eunderwent at Harley Street in London.
This isn't to say the others don't provide this, it's just easy to find this information on their website. TRSC International Lasik Center also offers the Femtosecond Lasik treatment which is the bladeless corrective laser treatment.
Prices for the TRSC International Lasik Center in Bangkok are not readily available on their website.
The Closest hotel to TRSC Lasik Center is The Dusit Thani hotel which is in a very good location for shops, shopping and transportation via Skytrain or Subway.
If you'd like to look for other hotels in that area, then we suggest looking at Agoda which can get up to 70% off regular hotel prices
