There is a very good chance I will get my cataract surgery while I am here. They tell me I will need a lot of follow-up care and I don't want to stay here any longer than necessary.
Is there an ophthalmologist in Belize?

Here are the 3 ophthalmologists I know in Belize City. Consultation fee was BZ$50 to $60 a few years ago.

Dr. Hegar Amin, 9 Daly Street

Dr. Victoriano Valdez, St. Thomas Strett at corner of Lizarraga Ave.

Hoy Eye Center, corner of St. Joseph & St. Thomas Streets

Harriette, I myself have never been, but I understand that the Hoy Eye Center mentioned by MisterB266 is very good.

I had both my cataracts done by Dr. Hoy. He is awesome!

Noele - did they do the cataract surgery by removing and replacing the lenses? Do you have an estimate on the cost? I'll see if I can get my insurance to cover it.
I just learned - today - that I can't get it done on this trip. I have to return in January for follow-up on my dental surgery so can schedule it for then. In the meantime I don't see well.
