    I just had an appointment for my cataracts last week at the Instituto Oftalmológico in Santiago. Upon recommendation by Dominicans in the know, Dr. Estrella was the doctor to see. Phone:+1 809-583-1902 They do the surgery right there. I was impressed with my appointment. The place is busy!!! My cataracts are not quite ready for surgery, so I won't be able to comment on that for at least 6 months.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Lindsey.Mine are not yet that bad but I've been advised that I will need to do something in the near future.Night driving is very difficult anyway so with poor night vision is best avoided.

    My Spanish is fairly adequate but not for complicated stuff.Do they have an English speaker on the phone?
    Thanks

    Lindsey, what do your people in the know say about Dr Sebastian Guzman? I had used him for some emergency laser surgery on one of my retinas and was impressed by his set up.
    Perfect English being educated in the USA. It is always good to have options.

    By the way, my sister in law had some new lenses implanted during her recent cataract surgery. The new lenses have eliminated her need to use glasses. She sees perfectly both far and near with them. She say it was like getting a new pair of eyes.

    Windeguy, there was another eye doctor recommended but I can't find my email with the information. Sorry. There are several eye doctors at the eye institute, but Dr. Estrella specializes in cataract surgery.
