Has anyone out there had any experience on getting medical procedures done in Thailand?

I'm thinking about getting my eyes lasered . I can get it done for about 1/3 of the price in Thailand than in NZ and get a good holiday out of it as well. I have known people who have got their teeth done over there and they can’t recommend it enough.

Just thinking my eyes are slightly more important to me than my teeth though.

I had my eyes down in South Korea a couple of years ago for less than a third of NZ (I was living there at the time).

I have no complaints and would do so again in a heart beat.  

Depending on what type you get recovery time can take a while (I had Lasek as it is recommended if you do contact sports)

Just remember that you can not claim on your travel insurance if anything goes wrong, as travel insurance contracts always contain an exclusion if your trip is for the purpose of obtaining medical treatment. This may be a dealbreaker for you, as it means you are effectively up a creek without a paddle if anything goes wrong.

I know someone that had some surgery done in Malaysia a few years ago and treatment facilities were A+.

However I thought I had read that it is not recommended that you fly for six weeks or so after LASIK eye surgery due to the dry environment of planes. But regular drops could probably fix that.
