DID you know that the quality of your vision can affect your performance and productivity?
But getting an eye checkup can be time-consuming and even inconvenient, especially for employees. That is why Asian Eye Institute is strengthening its corporate vision screening program, wherein it partners with companies and brings a medical team on-site to do vision screenings in their office, factory or plant.
“We believe that having clear, healthy vision can help employees perform better at work,” says Asian Eye corporate relations manager Camille Andrade. “Vision-related headaches and fatigue slow you down. It makes it harder to focus, especially for employees who spend hours in front of their computers or gadgets.
“With Asian Eye’s on-site vision screening, no need to endure long waits at the eye clinic nor stressful traffic to get a checkup or get your eyeglasses replaced or upgraded. We are bringing Asian Eye’s medical team and quality optical products right to their offices,” Andrade adds.
What sets this program apart from the typical optical shop setup is that the eye checkups include both eye grade measurement and disease detection.
Andrade shares: “We measure the eye grade to find out if patients have any changes in eye grade and need a new prescription. Do they need a pair of new eyeglasses or are their current eyeglasses still okay? We’ve also had patients who did not realize they needed glasses because they did not know they have refractive errors.”
The highlight of the vision screening is the EyeScan.
“EyeScan can detect if an employee has signs of serious eye conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, retinal problems or corneal and external diseases like pterygium. It’s quick, noninvasive and can be done even if the patient is wearing contact lenses,” Andrade explains. “Only Asian Eye has this technology, so it’s something we feel is valuable for our patients to have.”
EyeScan is ideal for people who have a family history of eye conditions, have never had an eye checkup and are suffering from lifestyle diseases like hypertension and diabetes. Employees who have irregular findings are advised to consult further with an ophthalmologist. Lopez Group employees receive 50% off on consultations and 15% off on selected diagnostic procedures when they visit Asian Eye clinics.
