A specialist in contact lenses, Dr. Jorge Murillo Martínez, shows up from Heredia every Friday and Saturday to provide more sophisticated vision help than is generally available in Tilarán.

The office, Optica Murillo, a block and- a-half west of the Banco de Costa Rica, is next to Carnes de Altura. A current patient describes our itinerant optician (possibly an optometrist) as reassuringly knowledgeable and concerned.
