BCVI prides itself on its Comprehensive Eye Care Programme aimed at preventing blindness & restoring vision where possible. Our doctors & staff members work with patients through all the stages of eye diseases and we provide high-quality personal care to all our clients.
The Primary Eye Care Programme and the National Eye Clinic work together in preventing & treating blinding eye diseases. For vision problems that can be solved with glasses, we also have an Eye Glass Lab where all the prescription lenses are matched with & fitted into the patients’ chosen frames.
Not only do we care for patients who visit the clinics, but the dedicated staff members also travel to the villages & towns to ensure maximum coverage throughout the country. International volunteers or visiting optometrists conduct outreach clinics, accompanied by a BCVI Ophthalmic Assistant (OA). Together they examine patients’ eyes, issue prescriptions & make referrals.
