Recently, Nick and I decided that we have been plagued by glasses for long enough, so we decided it was time to get LASIK!!! The problem is that LASIK is just so dang expensive!!! I like my eyes, but I don’t want to pay $3,000-$4,000 to get new peepers (figuratively speaking of course). So, what’s a poor couple to do? Get LASIK in Taiwan of course!!!
Since we live in Taiwan where the medical industry is much cheaper than in America (and just as reliable), we decided to do some research and see how much it would be to get LASIK done here, and boy oh boy were we surprised!!! We talked to our friends and co-workers, and one of them recommend we go to Kaoshsuing, Taiwan to get LASIK done at Dr. Yang’s Eye Alliance. So, that’s what we did!
The doctor and his associates were very nice and friendly, and we were given a personal associate who took care of all of our pre-op tests (he spoke English, of course). The doctor was friendly, spoke perfect English, and walked us through exactly what would happen during the procedure. It all went smoothly and we couldn’t beat the price!!! Nick’s was 35,000 NT and mine was 38,000 NT which translates to about $1,100 and $1,200 USD!!!!! What a savings!!! In fact, we decided that if you really wanted LASIK, you could travel to Taiwan, get LASIK, have a nice vacation (glasses-free, I might add), and go back home for CHEAPER than getting LASIK done in the US!!! So, if you’ve been thinking about getting LASIK done, and international travel is something you love (like us), then think about coming to Taiwan!!!
BONUS!!! We even got the opportunity to write a review on Dr. Yang’s website!!!
NOTE: I was not reimbursed for this testimony, it was just something I thought the world should know more about!
