National Eye Clinic


NECCVolunteer Ophthalmologist

BCVI’s National Eye Clinic (NEC), located in Belize City, Belize District, is a central referral facility for all patients from our clinics around the country needing further medical & surgical treatment for their eye condition. With the introduction of the NEC, we anticipate over the years that we will see a reduction in the number of people who are needlessly blind. We are encouraging all optometrists & Regional Field Officers to refer their patients to the doctor in order to administer the appropriate treatment.

Our National Eye Clinic includes:

  • A state-of-the-art operating theatre.
  • A comfortable reception, waiting & dispensing area.
  • Well-equipped examination & refraction clinics.
  • Affordable & top-quality service, medication & treatment.

The setting up of the NEC in 2000 has contributed significantly to the reduction of cataract blindness, which still remains the leading cause of blindness in Belize. We are very happy to be a provider of cataract surgery for the National Health Insurance Pilot Project and hope that this Project will eventually extend to the whole country.
