Asian Eye Institute opens two new clinics in the first quarter of 2017.
The new branches are housed under its sub-brands EyeSite by Asian Eye Institute and Asian Eye Vision Center. EyeSite is located at the Oasis Commercial Center inside First Philippine Industrial Park (FPIP), Batangas, while Asian Eye Vision Center is at Legaspi Towers 200, Makati.
Asian Eye partnered with St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center to launch the third site of EyeSite. It offers eye care services to the employees of the different companies inside FPIP and to visitors of the Oasis Commercial Center.
EyeSite is a one-stop eye care center and optical shop that aims to provide patients with quality eye care, treatment and surgery at affordable rates.
Primary eye care
Asian Eye Vision Center at Legaspi Towers 200 is the official eye care provider of the multispecialty clinic Health- First. Focused on providing primary eye care to employees and residents in the heart of the central business district, it offers refraction, optical products like eyeglasses, contact lenses and sports eyewear, and EyeScan. EyeScan is a prescreening service that can detect if a patient has signs of a potentially blinding eye disease such as cataract, glaucoma and retinal and corneal diseases. EyeScan is only available at select Asian Eye branches and its partners.
Asian Eye vice president and general manager Alwin Sta. Rosa said: “To date, we’ve already served over 140,000 local and foreign patients, but we also recognize the need to expand to different areas to reach out to more Filipinos. There are over 500,000 Filipinos who are visually impaired, and most of their eye conditions can be prevented. This is one way we are helping reduce this number.”
He added: “Right now, we are focused on discovering new sites where quality eye care services are needed and on putting together a medical team to serve in our upcoming facilities. We are happy we have partners who share the same goals as ours of providing quality, affordable and accessible healthcare for everyone.”
At present, Asian Eye has eight clinics in its network— Rockwell Center and Legaspi Towers 200 in Makati, Tri- Noma and UP Town Center in Quezon City, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay and Commercenter Alabang in Muntinlupa City. EyeSite now has one clinic in Fairview, Quezon City and two in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.(Story/Photo by:Charizze Henson)
