As the medical tourism industry continues to gain credibility and becomes an increasingly viable option in the face of rising U.S. medical rates, individuals are traveling for a broader range of treatments. Extending beyond plastic surgery, weight loss surgery, and other treatments generally associated with medical tourism, an ever-growing  number of international patients are traveling for different procedures — including laser eye surgery, and even for the purchase of contact lenses.

Under this umbrella is LASIK eye surgery — a refractive surgery which improves sight by correcting wide ranges of vision issues including far or nearsightedness and astigmatism. Growing numbers of well-trained doctors are performing such procedures in accredited Mexican hospitals, making travel to Mexico for eye surgery an increasingly trusted solution.
