Hoy Eye Centre in Belize City for sure, plus I think there's another optician that does it too. Had mine done at Hoy six months or so ago. Bz$400 to check your eyes are suitable then Bz$2400 I think. Cheaper than States and Mexico from others research, but I've only got one eye now - only kidding Dr Hoy - very professional, latest gear, and it includes a couple of valiums as a pre op med that knocked my head off and had me staggering through reception!!!!

It was Lasik. See the ad on the back of the current phone book. Looked at the web site first and doesn't seem to mention it there though. Dr Hoy was more than happy to show me round and discuss the whole process before I took the plunge, and I would suggest others do the same. Heard of some bad long term issues about RK from a London Optometrist so I specifically ensured it wasn't this process.

i worked for an optometrist for a bunch of years. for sure, do lasik over rk. ps - my ex had lasik maybe 5 years ago, and says he never even thinks about having worn glasses, ever. either procedure, you will most likely end up wearing reading glasses, eventually.
