    Question Laser Eye Surgery

    I have been looking to find some details with regard to laser eye surgery operations here in DR. I found a very old thread (2004) recommending a Dr. Carlino Gonzalez in Santo Domingo - does anyone have any up to date knowledge or information on him or can you recommend any alternatives? If possible approximate costings would also be useful. Thanks.

    Dr. Gonzalez is our doctor. He is part of a team of doctors, all specialists in some aspect of eye surgery. I recommend you contact them, Unidad Oftalmologica, tel 809-687-5857. These people are top notch. My wife and I had both eyes done for cataracts by Dr. Gonzalez. Trouble free. If he doesn't do the particular procedure you want, I am sure one of the others in the team does. The surgical nurses also well trained in surgical procedures.

    I could recommend Dr. Arnaldo Espaillat from Instituto Espaillat Cabral. He is excellent and has his own equipment for that.

    This is the address:

    Instituto Espaillat Cabral
    Av Independencia 853
    Santo Domingo
    (809) 686-0268

    Thank you for the recommendation. Have you or friend/ family actually had this procedure performed by this doctor?

    Does anyone care to update this information regarding laser eye surgery? The last post on this thread is almost 2 years old, and things might have changed in two year's time.

    Are there any new doctors to consider, or new pricing available?

    In the US, the prices have gone down considerably during past few years, and now, in general terms, are around $600 per eye. The technology has also evolved and improved.

    Is this also the case in the DR?

    Also, is there any information about doctors on the North Coast?
