Other Elective Medical Procedures

Costa Rica is one of the few countries offering expert LASIK/EXIMER laser eye surgery for the correction of Myopia, Hypermetropia and Astigmatism. Costa Rican ophthalmologists trained in world renowned centers for laser eye surgery, and using the most modern laser equipment, have successfully brought visual acuity to thousands.

Costa Rica also boasts physicians who have left traditional medical practice to study alternative methods of treatment and healing. Popular disciplines are acupuncture and Naturopathic medicine. They have had exceptional successes with homeopathic weight control and in helping those plagued by chronic pain syndrome (CPS).
