Ambergris Caye's Eye Clinic hosts US ophthalmologists

Island residents, including students from various schools, benefited from the eye services of a team of ophthalmologists from Stanford University in California, USA. The week-long eye clinic started on Monday, October 23rd, and offered complete eye examinations that not only informed patients about their need for glasses but also detected any major eye diseases. The service, which is free of cost, is intended to take place every two months and is being done through the efforts of Belizekids.org, Canary Cove, Stanford University in California USA, the San Pedro Lions Club, and the Belize Council for the Visually Impaired (BCVI).

The free clinic is located at the Lions Den on Barrier Reef Drive and was inaugurated in May of this year. The clinic is equipped with all necessary machines in order to provide an array of services. According to Consi Nu�ez from Belizekids.org, the response from the public has been very positive and people are taking advantage of the free service. She said the ophthalmologists are able to diagnose eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration among others. "Some of the most common diseases we have detected in people here on the island is glaucoma and cataracts," said Nu�ez. "In other cases, we have also made diagnose of major eye disorders. At the moment, no eye surgeries or anything of that sort can be done on the island, but it is something to look at in the future."
