Philippines – More screening programs

Alliance Regional Care (ARC) Hospital – Borough Eye Center

Held last August 30, 2019, this Eye Center was built with cooperation of ARC & Borough, a well-known health facility with four Medical Clinics scattered in Metro Manila. Kaleidos have been featured in some provincial Newspaper Articles in Lapu-Lapu, Cebu (Central Visayas Area) and had given a high recommendation for their screening process.

Good Samaritan Hospital- Nueva Ecija Eye and Laser Center

This institution invited us last August 24 and 27, 2019 for their Sight Saving Month Program and Anniversary demonstration. Knowing beforehand the quality of Kaleidos they decided to use it especially for the accuracy of the exam as well as portability and velocity this instrument provides. In this screening program participated children, adults to uniformed personnel and  travelled Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija (North East of Luzon).

Maranatha Christian Academy

In cooperation with Calamba Eye Center (Calamba, Laguna/ South Luzon Area) we have screened around 106 elementary students using Adaptica’s refraction system. During the program, by using Kaleidos,  we found out different cases of “HIgh Myopic”, “Astigmatism” and “Anisometropic”.

The screening programs help in a decisive way to detect sight anomalies in an early stage, and this allows interventions which can easily solve a series of problems that otherwise would become difficult to treat.
