The Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest) has reached an investment agreement with Optique Eye Hospital for the development of a new speciality eye hospital.
The facility will be the country’s first private speciality eye hospital.
It will offer various speciality eye surgeries and aims to set new standards of excellence in eye care for Guyana and the entire Caribbean region.
Being developed for $3.5m, Optique Eye Hospital is designed to offer a modern and healing environment.
According to Guyana Office for Investment chief investment officer Dr Peter Ramsaroop, this project is a key part of the National Development Plan, with the potential to attract medical tourism and create job opportunities.
The facility will be equipped with the latest ophthalmic technology. It will be staffed by a team of trained ophthalmologists, skilled physicians, nurses, and support staff.

In addition, the hospital will address a wide range of eye-related conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.
It is expected to open in the last quarter of this year.
This project adds to the large-scale investments across different industries, which includes over 60% from local sources. It is also part of the country’s larger healthcare expansion plan.
In addition, it is aligned with Guyana President Dr Irfaan Ali’s broader goal of setting up seven new hospitals in a bid to strengthen the country’s healthcare infrastructure.
These seven hospitals are set to be located across various regions, with ongoing infrastructural works.
The latest agreement came shortly after the Guyana Office for Investment signed an investment agreement with Sheriff Hospital to establish a private hospital in Leonora.
