Eye surgery (RLE)

Recommended Posts

I have read about refractive lens exchange and find it very interesting. This is the procedure where your natural lens is cut out and exchanged with a new artificial lens. No laser involved in this procedure.

This procedure is very expensive at home but in Prague it can be done for €1300 per eye. I am looking for a hospital in Thailand that performs this operation but my searches are resultless. 

Does anyone know more about this. I would rather have it Made in Thailand if there is a good place for this than having to spend a week in Prague.

I've had this done in one eye. It's generally done to fix cataracts. You lose the ability to focus in and out.

Go to the best hospital in Bangkok Bumrungrad International.  

Yes I've heard the way they do it now is same as the cataract operation where the lens is replaced, more expensive than the Lasik which I've had and is about £5000 per eye in the UK.

The procedure is simular to cataract operation but I dont believe you loose the ability to focus in and out. You can have a trifocal lens inserted and you should be able to see all distances.

I have checked the hospitals and I just cant find anything about RLE. Maybe they dont perform this operation in Thailand.

It's all about it on the link to Bumrungrad on the link I posted earlier in the thread.  ReLEx

Guess it helps not to use the abbreviation when searching. Thx - feel like an idiot. Not too many results though.

ReLEx is laser surgery which is not what I am looking for.

Got quote from Rutnin - 250.000 which is the same as here so not good news!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
