Cost comparison

In Kenya, an average oculoplastic surgeon is to be found at leading hospital chains. Therefore, this enhances the overall cost that is involved in the entire oculoplastic surgery billing. In addition, there is not much direct availability of resources in this field across Kenya. Therefore, it is definitely a safer bet to travel to India for all oculoplastic surgery requirements if you belong to Kenya. The total cost for ocular or oculoplastic surgery will range between INR 60000 and 80000 approximately. It might be little higher as per the category of surgery your doctor suggests.
