OPTOMETRISTS NEEDED IN BELIZE – SHORT OF LONG TERM This request from Carla Ayres Musa, Executive Director, Belize Council for the Visually Impaired
“I am writing from Belize Council for the Visually Impaired (BCVI) in Belize, Central America. We have had many visits from VOSH Teams in the past and have one coming up this month. We are requesting support from Optometrists as we are in a bit of a crisis situation with our Optometrists in our Primary Clinics.
One of our Optometrists has just resigned, another has gone back home to Cuba and one of our refractionists is on maternity leave – leaving a huge gap in our “man” power as we are down to two Optometrists to cover the whole country (population estimate 380,000). We are reaching out to everyone we know to request your support in finding Optometrists who would like to volunteer/work with us even if just for a few weeks at a time.
I am happy to answer any questions to provide more information if needed (cmusa.bcvi@gmail.com) I look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your support.

    My name is Mathew Bahrami. I practice in Knoxville, Tn. I have come to Belize in the past few times, mostly in Corozal. Last time I was there I was trying to work with a team of surgeons from Texas, but they declined my assistance . I do not mind to be of any assistance if I can be effective. I love to be involved with cataract and ptergium surgeries.
