Year Established: 1964
Founded in 1964 by Professor Dr. Uthai Rutnin MD, FACS, Rutnin Eye Hospital was Thailand's first private hospital specializing exclusively in Ophthalmology, the medical and surgical care of the eyes. The... more Board-certified surgeons from every sub-specialty of the eye comprise a team of eye care professionals operating at international standards. Always a leader in introducing new and proven technology to the country, the hospital provides patients with every opportunity for maintaining healthy eyes. Rutnin Eye Hospital was established on the sound foundation of excellence in medical and surgical procedures, investment in technology, the highest standard of cleanliness and safety, all provided in the comfort and convenience of private care. The practice flourished from a small clinic into a complete medical and ophthalmic care center, well know for its high quality eye care.
I went to see DR Pokpong Praneeprachachon who had performed corrective strabismus surgery on me (I have intermittent strabismus) . He was in such a rush to operate me, that everything was decided virtually... more overnight. A surgery which failed and worsened my strabismus, transforming it from esotropia to exotropia. In fact it was so severe, he considered re-operating me within the month to correct it. I refused to undergo surgery again. Years later I came back for a check up and he refused to acknowledge I still had strabismus despite knowing my condition was intermittent. I had to bring in pictures for him to concede the condition was still severe. He did not offer any advice (not even the basic exercise your eyes remedy) and instead asked if I would be interested in getting another operation. I also mentioned my eyesight was terrible at night, preventing me from driving. His conclusion was, instead of checking my night vision or prescribing glasses: "don't drive at night then, problem solved". A real joke. To be fair, he's probably an okay doctor by Thailand's standard but objectively a terrible eye doctor who rushes his diagnosis and has an urge to operate away any problem given that this is a profitable source of income for the hospital. By the hospital a hospital that has been completely renovated with brand new MAC screens for all the nurses, cashiers, receptionists....guess that's why there are so keen on operations and don't give patients the time for a full diagnosis.
Excellent Service. Doctors, Nurses are very much professional. RUTNIN is one of the best eye hospital in Asia. Lot of Peoples around the world come here for eye treatment.
Dr. Duangnate Rojanaporn... more is the best doctor I have ever seen in my life. Her treatment, behavior is great.
We are pleased to Rutnin Eye Hospital.
