Barbados seeks to develop medical tourism


Barbados is seeking to develop medical tourism and hopes that the opening of a new laser eye clinic can help.

The Lion’s Eye Care Centre is equipped with ultra-modern state-of-the-art ophthalmology equipment and will open soon. At first it will just have one operating theatre, but there are plans to open the other two by 2015.

The aim is to target not just Barbados, but other islands as few other islands have modern laser eye clinics.

The clinic is part of the state owned Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
