The World Association of Eye Hospitals is a world wide network of eye hospitals and is happy to welcome the Coa Thang International Hospital as one of it’s members. All member-hospitals are “centres of excellence” in the area of ophthalmology and focus on delivering the best and most safe ophthalmic care.
