A lens may also be used to replace a damaged lens, as well as to improve a patients eyesight who is short or long sighted (known as implantable contact lenses or ICL).

    Sometimes patients who have had an artificial lens implanted after cataract surgery decide to get a different lens implanted. Different lenses offer different focal lengths, meaning that patients are either short or long sighted. Some implantable lenses are multifocal, enabling patients to see better without glasses.

    Everyone has been very helpful, and I couldn't have asked for more procedure-wise. Only time will tell how the surgery results turn out. Will recommend anyone else I know to use Medigo, should they need your services.

    We arranged transport ourselves (no trip manager).The hospital had a "Brand New " appearance and was extremely clean and fresh looking and all the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional.The treatment (Dental) which my Wife and Myself received was carried out with a " No Rush " attitude which was relaxing and with little pain or discomfort. I would more than likely return for further treatment.

The clinic was visited by a Medigo team member

I found the Bangkok Hospital Phuket with no problems, it’s in the city and quite a large, well signposted building. The clinic looks fresh and nice, the interior is modern and has many places to sit and relax whilst waiting for an appointment. The equipment also looks new and clean. All the staff that I met were very friendly and nice with me.
