agc-donates-314-eyeglasses-news-picThe pandemic is not a hindrance to the continuous Bayanihan community outreach of the Alturas Group of Companies (AGC) which conducted another “Eye Love You” eye care program in Barangay Lomangog, Ubay, last Thursday, April 8.

Through its Alay Marcela Foundation, Inc., AGC reached out to the 314 eye patients of the said barangay who are suffering from poor eyesight and other eye defects. All of them received free prescription eyeglasses after they underwent eye check up last year.

The Alturas “Eye Love You” is highlighted by a free eye check-up and distribution of free branded prescription eyeglasses to all recipients, coordinated by Ideal Vision Center.

Last February 5, “Eye Love You” was conducted in Barangay La Hacienda, Alicia, where a total of 412 eye patients also received free prescription eyeglasses. Other beneficiaries were from Brgy. Lourdes, Cortes; Brgy. Gabi, Ubay; and Brgy. Subayon, Bilar who also availed themselves of the eye care program last year.

In Brgy. Gabi, a total of 157 eye patients were checked-up by resident ophthalmologist of Ideal Vision Center, Dr. Ryan Petrolla. All of them received prescription eyeglasses which help improve their eyesight. In Brgy. Lourdes, there were 60 recipients, while in Brgy. Subayon, there were 122 who also availed themselves of free eye check-up and free prescription eyeglasses.

“Eye Love You” stems from “Oplan Sagip Mata”, a comprehensive eye care program of DOH launched by the late Senator and former Health Secretary Juan Flavier in 1993, which until now provides free operations and services to address the increasing rate of blindness in the country. It has already helped over 500,000 beneficiaries nationwide.
