I wouldn’t...didn’t. Couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. You pays your money, you take your chances.

I don't know anything about Reynosa however Nevo Progresso about 25 miles to the east is very safe.

This should be moved to the snowbird forum where the OP can get some real answers and first-hand advice.

If you have Medicare they will pay a large portion of the cost.
If you want to go there from Colorado I would consider the cost of traveling, staying there, incidentals for the several days of post-op and then go back a week later for followup.

That's my plan. I'm waiting 2 more years for Medicare. Plus if they screw up here maybe you can sue the doctor, if you don't do the surgery in Texas. In Texas the doctor pretty much has to intentionally maim or kill you to be able to sue for malpractice.

Just a FYI, the really smart lawyers here in Tx file suit against the Dr in Fed court I have been told.
I had cataracts removed 1 1/2 years ago & Medicare paid 80 % of most of the bill . MC will not pay any of the extra cost of a Toric lens to correct astigmatism which I needed in the worst way for the left eye. I will say was worth the extra $ .
Your eyes are SOoooo important why not use the most reputable eye surgeon in your area instead of taking the risk of discount doc. It's like when I was in business, three things in a deal. Price, quality, & service. If you want it cheap then which of the other two are you willing to give up ?

That's a procedure I would want to do as close to home as possible.
