TRSC International LASIK Center
Opened in 1997, TRSC International LASIK Center was founded by Dr. Ekktet Chansue and Wanida Chansue with the goal of creating a refractive surgery clinic in Thailand meeting international standards of excellence. Now the largest stand-alone LASIK facility in Asia, TRSC focuses especially on refractive eye surgery, cataract eye surgery, and phakic intraocular lens implantation surgery. The center has performed nearly 50,000 eye surgeries since 1997 and annually manages 3,000 appointments and performs more than 2,000 surgeries.
TRSC's specialized focus on refractive surgery has enabled it to channel its investments into the latest diagnosis equipment and lasers for treatment. The center offers three types of LASIK, including Femto-LASIK (bladeless LASIK) with Wavefront analysis to provide greater surgical accuracy. Center surgeons are US board-certified ophthalmologists who have been trained in refractive surgery in the USA, Canada, and Germany.
Most recently TRSC has deployed ReLEx (Refractive Lenticule Extraction), the newest minimally invasive refractive surgery for correction of refractive errors. ReLEx uses the femtosecond laser from Carl Zeiss VisuMax in its most advanced form to correct myopia and astigmatism. Similar to the LASIK approach, ReLEx changes the corneal curvature to help correct the refractive error. However, instead of using the microkeratome blade to cut the flap as in LASIK, it uses the femtosecond laser to make a small (2-5 mm) incision for more accuracy and precision.
TRSC provides personal counselors to accompany international patients throughout the treatment process. Counselors are available 24 hours a day and provide a range of additional services, including assistance with hotel arrangements, administrative support, and handling medical documents. Interpreters are available for Japanese, English, and other languages. The center performs more than 500 surgeries on international patients each year.
