Dr. August R. Arosemena
Eye Surgery Specialist in Panama City, Panama
Paitilla Medical Center: 206-2424



After tripping on a blanket and falling down the stairs I damaged my retina.  Macular hole surgery was necessary and a few months later cataract surgery. Several years later I started having problems seeing out of that eye.  Dr. Arosemena was highly recommended so I flew to Panama City for an exam.   He did the most thorough eye exam I have ever had and quickly identified the problem.. a secondary cataract or film over my cataract.  Dr. Arosemena spoke perfect English and took time to explain my problem and what treatment was necessary to fix it.  Twenty-four hours later, he corrected it with laser surgery.  During the exam, he also identified that I needed surgery in my other eye to correct several problems.  Now, I can see up close and far away without wearing reader glasses or contacts. I highly recommend Dr. Arosemena.

Much to my pleasure, my vision is terrific

In April I had refractive eye surgery with Dr Arosemena. I did not have cataracts but, I was tired of wearing glasses and contacts. Of course at my age of 64 the recommended vision correction surgery is a lens exchange, the same as is done for cataract surgery. Dr Arosemena recommended a multi-focal lens that would give me vision for close-up, computer and distance. I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the entire process from initial communication with his office, through the surgery and the follow up. Much to my pleasure, my vision is terrific. I can thread my sewing needle and see distance with more clarity than I’ve had in my 64 years, even with contacts.
