Eye Care

We are fortunate to benefit from a wide range of eye care in the Cayman Islands from some excellent Optometrists and Ophthalmologists.

For regular eye exams, or to have glasses or contact lenses prescribed and fitted, see our Optometrists page. If you need eye surgery or are suffering from eye disease such as glaucoma, you will need to see an Ophthalmologist.

If you wear contact lenses, keep in mind that some health insurance companies require you to renew your prescription annually before accepting a claim.

Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat and manage diseases, injuries and disorders of the visual system, the eye and associated structures.


In the Cayman Islands, there are several Ophthalmologists (doctors specialising in eye and vision care.) They provide medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases, give full diabetic eye care and perform cataract surgery.
