The best and most comprehensive eye examination I ever had, with state of the art equipment, and this includes the U.S.
I was examined by the father Pedro, very professional, and speaks English.
The wait was average, about 30 minutes.
Unfortunately, they did not accept my Insurance which is MetaSalud, so the office visit was 1,500 dp.
Dr. Guzman is now my eye Dr. for as long as I am living in the DR..........

Optician

I need new glasses. While in the US last fall, I saw an ophthalmologist and have a copy of my current prescription. I am looking for someone able to make, correctly, glasses with progressive lenses in the Puerto Plata area, preferably.

There is an old recommendation from Ginnie Beggood (Lambada) about Optica Burgos. That was, however, in 2008 and I have no idea if they are still performing at the level she received.

although this forum gets little use ( understandable, given the small membership) I maintain it is a valuable resource for the residents.. the members.

Infrequent perhaps, but essential nonetheless.

Time will tell

Thanks, but I don't need to see Dr. Burroughs since I saw my ophthalmologist in the US in September. I need a good optical dispenser to order and fit glasses with progressive lenses for me.

I have had glasses made at his store near Bournigal. The 1st attempt had the progressive lens was way at the wrong place. No, it was not a matter of getting used to it. They fixed it but the branches adjustment on the frames left a lot to be desired. When they finally gave it to me to try it had a S curve in one of the branches. I left the store and took the glasses to Optical Cibao in Santiago in Los Jardines. Excellent service. Also got new lens put into another frame... excellent job too. I will get my next pair of glasses with Optical Cibao.

I think I need to see a cardiologist, or at least a good internist that can order and evaluate a cardiogram.
Is there a good one in Puerto Plata, CMC in Sosua or Santiago?

Many thanks
