Expatriates with vision problems may wish to see if their international health insurance policies could help them with the cost of laser eye surgery.
Royal College of Ophtalmologists president Professor Harminder Dua said this medical treatement can substantially improve a person's quality of life.
"The ability to see things without the aid of glasses" is particularly beneficial, especially for people who go swimming or engage in sports, he continued.
"It is really not a very simple procedure," the professor admitted, noting although machines perform all of the work and it does not require much skill from surgeons, "there is little margin for error in the eye".
Nontheless, the operation is "pretty safe" due to the lack of technical skills required by the operator, Mr Dua continued.
Many men and women have had this procedure performed and suffered no ill-effects, he added.
Over 35 million laser eye surgeries have taken place internationally since the procedure was created, Ultralase claims.
