  1. Hello,

    I will be visiting Cagayan de Oro City for 5 days and I wanted to get high quality surgery for both eyes. I am requesting about what are the cost for all surgical procedures and for Eye Specialist Consultation with all other fees and needs. I was also wanting to know if having both eyes done if you offered a promotion for the surgery and or discount also how long it would take for time to heal on average for high quality surgery. Any information would grately be appreciated. Thank you
