Laser Eye Surgery in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Eye Surgery in Puerto Vallarta

Get your 20/20 vision back with laser eye surgery in Puerto Vallarta - Mexico’s stunning holiday resort where you’ll be able to see the world in sharp focus again without glasses or contacts.

Tired of not seeing the world clearly? Just think of how much time, money and energy you waste on trying to see – spectacle frames and prescription lenses are not cheap and designer frames are exorbitantly priced. Contact lenses also cost a great deal in terms of maintenance and refills. And despite all the money you spend you still are unable to see clearly.

Now imagine if your vision is corrected – you will be able to get up in the morning and see and in the night without having to fumble for your glasses. If you cannot wear contacts (many people simply can’t for myriads of reasons) your sporting activities get restricted, particularly if you have a high number. All these problems will be solved after laser eye surgery.

Why consider laser eye surgery in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is a great holiday destination in Mexico. It has golden sandy beaches, azure waters and a relaxing atmosphere. You can stay in high end luxury hotels or find budget accommodations. Best of all, it is a short haul flight away from most places in the U.S. and Canada so is easily accessible.

It is also a medical tourism hub because it has excellent medical facilities, English speaking highly qualified doctors. And all this at a reasonable and affordable price. That is because the cost of living is cheaper and the laws in Mexico are different so they can afford to charge much less for medicines and surgeries and ancillary costs. When you have to undergo any cosmetic surgery procedure then Mexico is a good choice to save money.

Why can’t you simply book on your own?

If you can afford to take a risk, you can surely go ahead and make your own booking through any hospital, doctor or clinic website. But how will you find out more about the place and how will you sure that you are dealing with the right people? It can be scary to book for a medical procedure and when you go you suddenly feel unsure about the whole thing because it is your body that is at risk.

When you book through Medical Departures, we take the worry and apprehension out of the picture. We check out the qualifications, training and credentials of the doctors and make sure that they are up to standard. We also investigate the clinic and hospital thoroughly to see that they meet the necessary hygiene and safety standards required of foreign patients.

How long does laser eye surgery take and what is the downtime required?

After the initial consultation and other tests are over, the actual surgery is over in a matter of minutes. However, the tests are important and thorough testing will mean better vision acuity. LASIK corrects long or far vision, shortsightedness and astigmatism. It can also help people over the age of 40 who need reading glasses. Even in LASIK different kinds of laser treatments are available including blade and bladeless lasers. What kind of laser treatment is used really depends on the condition of your eyes and your vision.

There is virtually no downtime required as this is an outpatient procedure. You will be tired and may need to wear protective glasses or use drops in your eyes. Your vision may initially be a bit blurred and the final vision that you get will take a few day to be apparent. Most people are able to see clearly without the use of glasses or contacts, though some may have a slight residual number that can be corrected at a later stage if necessary. Apart from simple vision correction laser eye surgery can also be used for retinal tears and post cataract clouding of the implanted lens, though different lasers are used for these procedures.

What is the cost of laser eye surgery in Puerto Vallarta?

In Puerto Vallarta you can expect to pay a fraction of the price of the same procedure in U.S. or Canada where it can cost between US$ 2,000 and US$ 3,000 per eye. In Puerto Vallarta you can expect to pay an average of US$ 1,400 for both eyes.
