Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive surgery


Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery is the management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear production and drainage) system and eye sockets.  Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery requires the expertise and experience of ophthalmologists who are both medical doctors and competent eye surgeons. The goal is to assess, diagnose, manage and treat all symptoms and disorders of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear production and drainage) system and eye sockets to ensure that the eyes are able to function efficiently.

Refractive Surgery Center

 
For those longing for the day when they’ll wake up able to see the world in full clarity with their very own eyes, Bumrungrad International Hospital can be of service.

Laser Eye Surgery that Does Not Require a Scalpel

 

Take the next step with ReLEx (Refractive Lenticule Extraction) SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction), a surgical technique for correcting short sightedness and astigmatism. Through the utilization of a new generation of laser that is targeted through a tiny incision in the cornea (2-4mm), the nerves in the upper cornea are not disturbed, thus decreasing the chances of dry eye syndrome.


With ReLEx SMILE, patients are able to see clearer right away, and with only a short recovery time are able to quickly return to their normal activities.

Treating Eye Disorders with the Femtosecond Laser: the Vision Solution Technology that Utilizes LASIK

 

Currently, there has been an increase in safety standards associated with the lifting of the optical flap by utilizing a Femtosecond Laser instead of a scalpel, thus ensuring high levels of surgical accuracy. With regard to the steps involved in correcting vision by adjusting the corneal surface, the Excimer Laser enables LASIK to be used with high safety and efficiency.


Furthermore, Bumrungrad International Hospital has a team of internationally trained specialists on hand to provide treatments that utilize the latest equipment in order to accurately and effectively correct eye disorders. You can be confident that the quality of treatment offered is delivered in accordance with internationally recognized standards.
