What you need to know about Ophthalmology in Thailand

A branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. Specialists in this field are known as Ophthalmologists and offer a range of care, from vision corrective glasses and contact lenses to eye laser surgery (LASIK), an invasive form of long-term correction of the vision. With diseases of the eye, Ophthalmologists tend to focus on one speciality, including retinal ophthalmology (retina), anterior segment surgery (iris, cornea and lens), neuro ophthalmology (nervous system), ocular oncology (tumours), oculoplastic (surgery of the eye sockets, eyelids and tear ducts) and paediatric ophthalmologists (children).

About Thailand

Thailand leads the way for Asian countries with over 60 state-of-the-art JCI accredited facilities and consistently voted one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. It's known for its tropical beaches, floating markets, stunning royal palaces and Buddhist temples. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises with brand new high-rise condominium developments next to quiet canal side communities. According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the most popular tourist areas outside of Bangkok are Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Pattaya, all with great yacht chartering opportunities.

Thailand welcomes hundreds of thousands of medical tourists each year, many of which travel for Ophthalmology procedures. Medical Tourists travel from all across the globe, particularly from the local SE Asia region, Australia, US, Middle East and an increasing amount are traveling from China. An outstanding private healthcare system combined with a hot tropical climate and competitive prices means that Thailand is now the third most popular destination in the world for medical tourism. The most popular procedures tend to be cosmetic surgery (breast augmentations, gender reassignment surgery and CoolSculpting to name a few), cardiac surgery, orthopedics and urology.
