    Default Eye doctor in Las Terrenas / Puerto Plata??

    Hi All,

    My girlfriend and I are in Las Terrenas right now. She scratched her eyeball last night and we're a bit concerned with the redness, swelling and pain.

    We have a vehicle and are on our way back to Cabarete in the next few days.

    Can anyone recommend a good eye doctor (opthomologist, optomistrist) in the Las Terrenas or Puerto Plata area?

    Many thanks in advance

    There are some recommendations on this board for Santiago if you do a search. Sorry, there is no-one I could recommend in PP. In the meanwhile antibiotic eyedrops might ease any infection she might have picked up - Oftalbiotic are good.

    If you feel it can be something serious, you better drive to Santo Domingo to Instituto Espaillat Cabral, they are the best ophthalmologists in DR. Call them to set an appointment before you go.

    See either Dr. Guzman (Pedro) or Dr. Jose Asilis.
    Guzman in Corominas
    Asilis in Bonilla

    top of the line all the way.

    If you can make your way to a local pharmacy ASAP, give them a note asking for POLYSPORIN, which you may know is an antibiotic and should be applied immediately on any scratch or infected eye. If you do get to a doctor here make sure that they are aware you are using POLYSPORIN as you will not need an eye wash during this applications.

    Best of Luck!

    Also,if you have not already done this for your friend, cover the eye with a pad or large band aid to insure non exposure to sun light, dust and other other possible particles!
