SuperSight Surgery?


Fordtech

Recommended Posts

Thanks for bringing it up Ford. We are coming over in November for 6 weeks and will look into it. It's one of the better hospitals around too. I'm taking the Boss their for an interview for nose reduction in mid November. She wants to look more like a Filipina and not a Westerner.

I was wondering in any one has had the SuperSight surgery done in Pattaya?

 

 

To be honest, this is not the type of medical procedure I would have done in LOS. I would want this done in the West. I had a colonoscopy done in LOS and was pleased with the professional work. I would also be willing to have dental and dermatological work done there. However, that is as far as i would go for medical care in LOS. Something as sensitive as Lasik should not be done there. There is too much danger of something going wrong.

I know another guy who had it done by the same doctor  - he is 70 and sees perfectly

 

I am not sure this procedure is available in the West

 

Its worth a visit the consultation is free and worst case you get a free eye test

Lasik is quite common in the US. Don't know about the UK.

Lasik is also in the UK but does it deal with BOTH short and near sighted or just one or the other - SS as described above deals with both and gives near on 20/20 vision

My understanding is that with US lasik, you will still need reading glasses, but not contacts.

Had Lasik done in 2001 and consider it money well spent. At that time, and I believe it to still be the case, to achieve correction for both distance and reading with Lasik requires they correct one eye for distance and the other for reading. After an adjustment period the brain learns to adapt to the correction difference between the two eyes.

 

SuperSight is lens replacement surgery, the Lasik only comes into play if correction for astigmatism is required.

 

For those considering the procedure, the key question is to ask for the surgeon's procedure stats. That should give you an idea of his/her's success rate. Also research the specific brand/model of the laser and lens replacement used. Back in 2001 there was quite a difference in quality between the various lasers on the market, and it was eye opening (pun intended) to learn just how bad some of the equipment was.

Well there is the difference - with this surgery no glasses, no contacts, no nothing - and furthermore when another friend looked into this there were almost no bad reviews - which would surely come out - after all farangs in Pattaya moan about the smallest of things

Same place as in the link in the first post and the cost is around 200 - 220k baht

Sorry I missed it I got that excited when I saw the post I nearly had a bowel movement and was more worried about shitting myself than reading.I am going to go back now and read properly now that the danger has passed,thanks for your help

I have to think that if this surgery was really safe it would already be available in the West.

He is marketing cataract surgery for patients without cataracts. Not only is that available in the west, cataract surgery is probably the most common surgical procedure in the west. Cataract surgery is in general a very safe procedure anywhere you go. Cataract surgery involves removing the clouded lens and replacing with an artificial one. You can also take out a healthy lens and improve vision with an artificial lens, same procedure without cataracts. There are choices about what kind of lens to use. You can choose high end ones that have have multiple focus for different purposes or the more traditional single one. With that you generally need glasses for reading or perhaps driving and computer work. So again basically this Supersight is a marketing thing ... surgery for people without the actual medical need for the surgery. Using a high end multifocus lens with the usual goal to eliminate any need for glasses. But that result can't be guaranteed. 

 

My only comment about this local option is that the price does seem quite high for Thailand but the lens is expensive.

I agree the price seems very high but will look into it also. I have a friend who had it done like 6 years ago in Bangkok and is now almost 70 and he has perfect vision.

I am presently going through the process at BHP cost is 110k baht per eye but I am using a restor mulifocal lens from the U.S. that costs about 60k per lens. I have had the left lens replaced and am presently recovering.

Interesting. Are you using the famous Dr. Somchai or another eye doc there? Best of luck with your procedures.

I am using Dr Sawang who did a lot of his studies in the US. Seems like a good guy. The important thing with the surgery is patience and time. I had my left lens replaced and after 2 months they will do lasik on the eye to correct astigmatism. My right eye will more than likely be completed in about 2 weeks.

Thanks. So it sounds like you are happy so far. Do you have cataracts or are you doing this lens replacement without cataracts?

Had the same thing about 5 yrs ago. The principle is called monovision. once your brain recalibrates, its works very well.

Glad to hear it.

Often people say it's best to go to Bangkok, specifically Rutnin for eye surgery.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
