Laser eye surgery is a procedure that corrects vision so that contacts and glasses are not necessary. While the procedure can eliminate the need for glasses, it is very expensive. Laser eye surgery is considered an elective procedure and insurance companies do not usually cover the cost of the surgery.
Going abroad for laser eye surgery will provide the same results without the expensive price tag. In many countries, doctors are held to the same strict standards of education, training and safety precautions as the United States. The key benefit is that the cost of the laser eye surgery is much lower in many countries, even with the added price of plane tickets. Going abroad for laser surgery to correct vision can result in better sight and an affordable price.
