Cataract Surgery in Mexico
|Updated: Shirley on September 11th, 2012||no responses.|
Cataracts are a condition which causes cloudy vision and can lead to eventual blindness. Frequently associated with age, it affects the quality of life of many seniors. Although laser surgery is generally the most effective treatment, it can be prohibitively expensive. For this reason, many Americans on a fixed budget are pursuing cataract surgery in Mexico.
Many options exist for patients seeking an eye surgery center in Mexico, from the border towns of Tijuana and Mexicali, to more tropical destinations such as Cancun. Matthew Dalstrom of the Huffington Post writes in his article published on August 22, 2012 that along with other common procedures, cataract surgery abroad is becoming increasingly popular among seniors “because either Medicare will not cover it, or because the deductible and/or co-pay is more expensive compared to Mexico.”
