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.

They also prescribe and fit glasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems. For general eye care see our Optometrists section.
