Most patients seeking corneal transplants abroad want to save costs, find highly skilled ophthalmologists, and reduce waiting time. Seeking cornea transplant treatment in non-private hospitals will likely place you on a waiting list. And during this period, your eyesight may worsen.
A cornea transplant is a complex treatment, and you will have a higher chance of treatment from a skilled overseas surgeon than a local doctor with less experience.
There are many advantages of traveling abroad to receive a corneal transplant abroad:
Find highly skilled and experienced surgeons.
The surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like Joint Commission International JCI or International Organization for Standardization ISO.
Treatment that's worth your money
Finding a specialist abroad will be more cost-effective than visiting an amateur doctor in your local country.
You get access to superior patient care services.
Most doctors usually see their patients once a month. So, an average doctor spends fewer than seven minutes with a patient. Ultimately, this means that patients don't experience good patient care services from their doctors.
On the other hand, if you travel abroad to receive treatment, you can expect to be treated with care and respect when you go for treatment abroad. The surgeons in these reputable hospitals take the time to talk to patients.
The procedure is more affordable abroad.
The cost of health care in the US, UK, and Australia has been rising for the past few years. Medical procedures costs 40% - 50% less abroad.
You have access to innovative treatment options.
Traveling abroad for treatment will open other possibilities or introduce better, more effective treatments.

If you experience either of these symptoms, talk to the doctor, and they will advise you on the best procedure for your condition.
