An article in the NY Times reads: 3. Visit a Thai optician. When headed to Thailand, bring along an optometrist’s prescription — or simply know your prescription — and order contact lenses or glasses at a fraction the cost you would pay at home, said Tida Harnpanpongse of the Tourism Authority of Thailand. In fact, she added, you don’t need a prescription for much of anything, which can come in handy if you forget a medication or get sick on the road and are “skilled” at self-diagnosis. Ms. Harnpanpongse also mentioned that gender reassignment surgery is also a bargain in Thailand, but maybe try out the glasses first.
My question to those who know Bangkok, what optical shops do you recommend? How long does it take to get them done?
