San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Arenal Report

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. What’s generally available is the optical shop of his son, Jorge Luis Murillo Quesada, who, though he is studying, cannot yet provide vision testing, but can sell regular as well as contact lenses when they come in, as well as a variety of frames. 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.
