The staff were amazing!!! Also the doctor and nurses were fantastic. I couldn't have wished for more caring individuals to look after me. They go the extra mile to try and put me at ease. I feel like I was getting first-class treatment during my stay there. Thanks to the highly qualified doctor and up to date surgical equipment, my surgery went well.

I understand why this hospital is considered the best in Thailand. Traveled all the way from Australia to get my treatment here after I heard good things about it. Superb staff, very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Many of the staff can speak English, so communication is not a problem. I asked many questions and told them my concerns, and they answered patiently and put me at ease. Had to stay for several days after my treatment. The room was super clean, well-designed, and definitely made me feel comfortable. The nurses checked on me every hour or so, and the food was surprisingly great. Though having to stay in a hospital is never a good experience, I would say my time in Bumrungrad was a pleasant one. A bit pricey when compared to other hospitals around the area, but with the quality service and high-level care offered, it was all worth it.

The price is a bit expensive, but the service was incredible so I don't mind. I had a hip replacement, and the surgeon was very professional and knowledgeable. Felt scared at first, but since the surgeon was very reassuring, the whole experience became stress-free. The staff were very friendly, efficient, and courteous. Everyone was very encouraging as well, helping me to recover faster. Also, the food was very good. 😄 The hospital was clean and tidy. Everything was modern. I really wish my local hospitals were this impressive.

    What you need to know about Cataract Surgery in Thailand

    Types of Cataracts

    Cataract surgery is a surgical procedure to remove the natural lens of your eye and replace it with an artificial lens. The procedure is usually performed on people with a cataract that cause dim or blurred vision, double vision, a halo around bright lights, and poor night vision. The goal of the surgery is to help you see better.

    What does a Cataract Surgery Procedure Involve?

    You will be awake during the procedure, but you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and you may receive a sedative to help you relax. Your surgeon will make a tiny incision in the front of your eye, remove the clouded lens, and implanted a clear artificial lens made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic, and close the incision. In some cases, your surgeon may only remove the cataract without implanting a new artificial lens. 

    How Long Should I Stay in Thailand for a Cataract Surgery Procedure?

    Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can leave the hospital on the same day as the surgery. You should aim to stay in Thailand for at least 3 to 7 days to allow your eye to heal and to go to follow-up hospital checkups as your surgeon will need to monitor your healing progress.

    What's the Recovery Time for Cataract Surgery Procedures in Thailand?

    The complete recovery period until you are fully healed is about eight weeks. During this period, avoid any strenuous activity and heavy lifting, bending, or exercising activities that might stress your eye and any activities that would expose your eye to dust or grime. However, you may be able to go back to work and return to some of your normal activities within 1-2 weeks. 

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Cataract Surgery Procedures in Thailand?

    Your surgeon may prescribe eye drops as well as other medicine to control eye pressure, prevent infection, and reduce inflammation, make sure to take it as prescribed. You may also need to wear an eye patch or protective shield when you sleep to prevent you from pushing or rubbing on your eye. Most people need glasses after cataract surgery, but you can only get a prescription for eyeglasses after your eyes have healed enough (within one to three months after surgery). 

    What's the Success Rate of Cataract Surgery Procedures in Thailand?

    Cataract surgery is a common and safe procedure, with about 90% of people that can see better after the surgery. However, it is very important to have realistic expectations. The side effects and risks of cataract surgery are swelling, eye infection, bleeding, drooping eyelid, retinal detachment, dislocation of the artificial lens, secondary cataract, loss of vision, inflammation, and glaucoma.

    Are there Alternatives to Cataract Surgery Procedures in Thailand?

    In the early stages when your vision is still quite good, or when your cataract does not interfere with your ability to perform your daily activities, your doctor may recommend you to have periodic reviews to monitor your cataracts without any treatment. Your doctor may also advise you to change your glasses or contact lens to improve your vision.

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    Before cataract surgery, you may find it difficult to carry out your normal activities, such as driving at night, enjoying the outdoors, reading, or work on a computer. After the surgery, your vision will be a lot better and you can enjoy many activities that you couldn’t perform because of your cataract.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
