Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Are you available to chat?
How far can you travel for treatment?
we can drive a couple hours
There is a retina specialist in Cabo San Lucus which should be about 10km from you
would that work?
no cabo san lucus is on the baja
let me keep checking
how about guadalajara
can you give me more specific info on puerto vallarta mexico? My maps just pull up the town on the mainland
this is the doctors address. On the map it is just inland from puerto vallarta:
Fausto M. Lechuga-Ortiz, MD, MSOphthalmologyBlue Medical NetCarr. Transpeninsular Km. 6.3Col. Cabo Bello, Plaza del Rey # 5Cabo San Lucas, 23410MexicoPhone: +52 (624) (NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
Is this near where you will be vacationing?
Puerto Vallarta is about have way down on the pacific side
Forgive me my ignorance....I failed Geography in 4th grade :(
puerto vallarta is a nice place with alot of retired americans
The town Google maps pulls up is on the mainland at the southern tip of the Gulf of California. Are we talking about the same town?
I see cabo San Lucus on the map....on the tip of the baja. The cabo san lucus the retina doc is in not there but just inland a few km from puerto vallarta. Very confusing....
south of mazatlan
got it....puerto vallarta, about 435 Km south of mazatlan. Let me see what I can find for retina doc's ....
right now i get a shot a couple times a year to help my vision, do not know if my eye will get out of wacked when i'm there
Looks like this is the closest retina Doc. He's aboutXXXXXaway.

Hopefully since you have been doing fairly well since your vein occlusion and won't need to see him. I went through the entire list of ASCRS member retina doctors in Mexico.....
do you know if he can do a shot of avstin, i think thats how you spell it
My specialty intrerest is retina. If you want you can take me and my wife along just in case you need some avastin. If I have to lay on the beach to make sure you are OK, well, I guess that is part of being a caring physician, eh? ;o)
do you know dr sippy in missoula mt
he should be able to. If he doesn't have access to Avastin he could use Lucentis. I would expect that every ASCRS member doctor has some in his office in this day and age.
No. I don't. There are not that many retina docs in the USA but there are still enough that we don't know everyone
Thanks for the help.you should go to puerto vallarta sometime or better yet come to montana. I own a outfitting business called lewis & Clark trail adventures in Missoula Mt
Montana sound like more fun then Mexico. Do you have a problem with prarie dogs out your way?
no only grizzley bears and wolfs
still sounds like a fun place. Have a great time in Mexico and thanks for getting me to brush up on my world geography
