Tomas, Batangas on April 27, 2018. It was attended by executives from First Philippine Holdings Corporation, Asian Eye and SFCMC.
Asian Eye, through its subbrand EyeSite, partners with SFCMC to provide patients from Southern Luzon and nearby provinces expert eye care delivered with the compassionate care that Filipinos are known for.
It offers complete eye checkups for children and adults, diagnostic procedures and treatment and management of eye conditions that include cataracts, retinal problems, glaucoma and cornea and external diseases like pterygium and dry eye.
First of its kind
It also features EyeScan, a first-of-its-kind technology that can detect signs of potentially blinding eye conditions in five to 10 minutes.
EyeSite offers an array of optical products ranging from prescription glasses to sunglasses, contact lenses and specialized eyewear. It offers immense value for money, where patients can avail of reading glasses for P199 and all-in eyeglass packages for as low as P1,490.
Asian Eye president Benjamin Liboro said: “More people now have lifestyle-related conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, and these have made them more vulnerable to sight-threatening diseases. The catch is, they won’t know it until they get their eyes checked. This is why we introduced EyeSite.
Access to expert eye doctors
“We wanted to show people that regular eye checkups protect them from vision loss,” Liboro added. “Through EyeSite, we are able to bring innovative yet affordable eye care closer to them. They can enjoy the comfort and convenience of having access to expert eye doctors, high-quality eyeglasses and optical products and a caring and competent medical team to help them care for their eye health.”
EyeSite offers eye care packages to cater to the different needs and changing lifestyles of patients.
Asian Eye vice president and general manager Alwin Sta. Rosa shared: “We offer packages designed for diabetics, families, overseas Filipino workers and senior citizens. In fact, we have a cataract surgery package for seniors that starts at P18,250. With this treatment, our lolos and lolas can restore their vision, enjoy caring for their kids and grandkids, and continue to lead active and productive lives.
“Our partnership with SFCMC also enables us to accept HMO cards, allowing us to serve more patients and employees.”
EyeSite also has an optical shop at the Oasis Commercial Center within First Philippine Industrial Park in Sto. Tomas. It expects to open more branches within the year. Its services will soon be available in Mandaluyong in partnership with Unilab’s Reliance Care Inc. and in Batangas and Cavite.
