Our commitment to new treatments & technologies

Staffed by dedicated experts, and complimented by a wide array of state-of-the-art medical equipment, the Bermuda International Institute of Ophthalmology is capable of addressing a wide spectrum of eye disorders.

There have been many recent advances in ophthalmology that are leading to improved eye care and enhanced outcomes for patients undergoing treatment for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataract removal with IOL implantation.

Ophthalmology is entering one of the most remarkable phases in recent history in this industry; new technologies and treatment modalities for both visual acuity and major eye diseases may dramatically change the composition and competitive dynamics of this specialty. As PRK and LASIK changed the market a few years ago, even newer competitive technologies are just now emerging.

From the advent of photodynamic therapy and new delivery techniques to revolutionary surgical approaches to refractive vision correction, ophthalmology is poised to see a plethora of new treatment options for major eye diseases, including:

The Bermuda International Institute of Ophthalmology is uniquely positioned to embrace this most remarkable phase of ophthalmology. Our newly opened surgical suite addresses the need for more Operating Room time in the area of oculoplastics and refractive surgery; our commitment to new technologies and treatment modalities ensures an impressive standard of care for the Bermudian populace; and our dedication to continuing education for our staff provides the cornerstone for the sustained growth of our clinic.

The 17th Annual Eye Institute Classic

The Arboretum will come alive in just under two weeks as approximately 300 runners and walkers are expected to take part in one of Bermuda’s most attractive race and walking events.

The Eye Institute Classic is a fitness-themed fundraising event which encourages participants to get fit for a good cause. The event brings together people of all ages and fitness levels who thrive on the opportunity to exercise for charity.

The family-friendly Annual Eye Institute Classic Run and Walk will no longer begin at St. George’s, and will instead commence at the Arboretum on Sunday, April 14th. The event will take runners and walkers on a varying course along the middle road and past ocean view golf course.

The event is suitable for all ages. There is a shorter 1-mile race for children starting at 8.30 am with the 5k for adult runners and walkers following 30 minutes later.

T-shirts and goody bags will be available for the first 250 participants and draw prizes include an airline travel voucher and two bicycles!

The guest of honour will be the Deputy Governor Mrs Alison Crocket and this year’s race directors are Leonard Teye-Botchway and Nana Otu Turkson.

For over a decade, the event has raised thousands of dollars for charity. Register online now at http://www.racedayworld.bm and do your part!

How much does cataract surgery cost?

October 18th, 2018|

The cost of a premium lens would cost between about $500 and $2,500, depending on the type of lens that is chosen. In addition to fees pertaining to the lens, there are fees that pertain to the actual assessment. In the leadup to the surgery, patients would undergo counselling and several tests, which would incur an office fee which usually ranges from between about $100 to $500. Some patients opt for a premium lens but are unable to pay for the cost of a lens up front, and we have a protocol for assisting patients who have difficulty with paying for the fees up front.
