In-order to improve eye health of communities in districts where BICO work, we have established eye clinics and optical centres in Zomba, Mangochi, Ntcheu and Blantyre and we can be reached at hotline number +265 1 875377 where information can be obtained.

The clinics are meant to cater for all ages, and have a range of good quality glasses and optical devices, ranging from the most affordable to the most expensive, and catering for people from all walks of life. We also test blood pressure and blood sugar, and we know both high blood pressure and diabetes can affect your eyes.
