I am a tourist on holiday in Thailand. I would like to place on record my
appreciation of Dr. Somchai Trakoolshokesatian, Bangkok Pattaya Hospital,
Super Sight Unitís Ophthalmologist, for restoring my eyesight. For the
last 40 years, it has been necessary for me to have spectacles for reading
and also for far-sightedness and now, at the age of 84, I am overwhelmed by
Dr. Somchaiís surgery and I can now read and view TV without spectacles.
The operation is painless. I was awake during the one hour operation on both
eyes as I was given a local anesthetic. This was done by simple eye drops.
My natural lenses were removed by a technique called Phacoemulsification.
Dr. Somchai made a very small cut in the eyes, softened the lens with sound
waves and removed the lens through a small tube. The back layer of the lens
was left and then artificial lens were implanted and natural lens replaced.
I understand that unlike laser treatment this operation, in the whole of
Asia, is only performed by Dr. Somchai and also only undertaken in the USA
and Germany. This is great testimony of Thailandís advances in the field
My latest eye test revealed that the sixteen numbers from the largest to the
smallest; I was able to distinguish up to number fourteen on the chart, a
Since the operation, I have been very happy with the result and a number of
my friends and others have shown an interest and are considering it. I can
only advise to do it as soon as possible and throw away your spectacles.
