Corozal has several options for eye care at low or even no cost!
The group of eye specialists who became Benevolent Missions International has been coming to Belize to provide eyecare since 1986. They come two or three times a year, and provide many services, including eye surgery, free or nearly free. Their building is adjacent to the Corozal Community Hospital. See their page here.
The Belize Council for the Visually Impaired (BCVI) is a dynamic non-governmental organization providing a wide variety of eye care for Belizeans at no cost. They are active in screening for visual needs, offering glasses at a reasonable cost, and making referrals for more serious problems encountered.
The BMI and the Methodist Church have graciously offered the use of the Methodist Eye Center in Corozal, and they usually come twice a month on Tuesdays, first come first served. See their page here.
In addition to the above, at times the Rotary Club of Corozal and the Rayjon Eyeglass Team, a division of Share Care of Sarnia, Inc., join to provide needed services to our people. They provide free glasses and their services and times are locally advertised and announced. They were here in November, 2016 as well as in 2011. Here is an article about the 2011 visit.
Editors' note: We would like to express our gratitude for everyone at the Methodist Eye Center who graciously allowed us to take pictures and provide information requested. And many thanks to Mrs. Ismay Brooks for her years of tireless dedication to this project. Also, appreciation goes out to the folks at the BCVI who have always been cordial and helpful. And let us not forget ALL the Corozal volunteers who help make all these activities successful!
