Awarded at the end of 2013, these memberships were sought out as part of Asian Eye’s efforts to provide Filipinos with highquality eye care at par with the best of the world.
With the goal of making the ASEAN a center of excellence for ophthalmological and eye care services, the Asean Association of Eye Hospitals (AAEH) promotes joint research projects among the eye hospitals and eye centers in Asia. As a new member, Asian Eye is participating in AAEH’s joint benchmarking initiative to determine and promote the best practices among ASEAN hospitals.
Asian Eye was also accepted into the World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH), which promotes ophthalmology practice through social outreach and information on eye care health administration. With only 23 members worldwide, Asian Eye is the only eye clinic member in the Philippines. WAEH member hospitals are regarded as centers of excellence that are focused on delivering the best and safest ophthalmic care to their patients.
