timjwilson Posted April 15, 2021 Report Share Posted April 15, 2021 I had a very good experience (so far) having cataract surgery done by Dr. Juan Garrido at Puerta de Hierro Sur hospital. I was given a choice of practically any intraocular lens I decided upon. The cost varied accordingly. The cost of monofocal lenses which most people get was 35,000 pesos per eye. These are usually for average distance viewing and reading glasses are used for close up viewing. After some research I decided on Zeiss (Lisa) multifocal (trifocal) lenses. The cost for everything excluding my initial examination (900p) and analytic measurements (1200p), was 42,000 pesos per eye, a very reasonable expenditure. I had both eyes done, 2 weeks apart in March. I can see the trees at the mountain tops and read without glasses. My last eye exam I had 20/20 vision. The examination process when I first attended Dr. Garrido's office was to first, have magnified (microscope) photos taken of my eyes. Then I went into the doctor's office and he examined my eyes with another microscope and performed a vision test as well as a lens prescription should I decide on glasses. Post surgery, I went into yet another room where he examined my eye(s) with another scope which interfaced with a camera and large monitor so we could see the lens placement. The surgery takes place at the same hospital. After checking in with admissions, I was taken to a private room where I put on a hospital gown and had the IV line for sedatives put in. The surgery caused no discomfort whatsoever. Dr. Juan Alberto Garrido Camelo (Juan Garrido) Cirujano Oftalmologo - Ophthalmologist Surgeon Ph: 331-593-2102 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Hospital Puerta De Hierro Sur - 10th floor Tell him Tim sent you, as I'd like him to know that I am happy to refer others. [no kickback; I promise] The topographical(?) (sizing) testing of my eyes was done in the same hospital by Dr. Carlos Munoz on the 4th floor, who is also an ophthalmologist surgeon. This is done for the sizing and type of lenses to be used. I believe the cost of this ranges from 1200 pesos [which I paid] to 3000 pesos. His phone number is 331-655-0544. He is also an excellent physician. 4 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
