Hoy Eye Center has invested in cutting edge equipment to more adequately serve our patients. The following pages describe the administrative arrangements and equipment purchases that we have made which will now enable Belizeans to receive many emergency eye surgeries in their own country. Up until now it has been necessary to refer these cases abroad to Guatemala and Mexico because of the unavailability of equipment and expertise.
For instance, to date, all retinal surgeries resulting from trauma to the eye, such as cases of retinal tearing, bleeding, intraocular foreign body, vitrous bleeding and all types of retinal detachments, have been referred abroad. These cases can now be treated at our center. Hoy Eye Center is prepared to receive, diagnose and treat all Belize Social Security Board referrals and emergency cases during normal working hours from Monday through Saturday.
