agc-eye-love-youOne outreach activity of the Alturas Group of Companies (AGC) that looks for the welfare of those suffering from poor eyesight and other eye defects is the on-going “Eye Love You” eye care program, conducted through its Alay Marcela Foundation, Inc. (AMFI), in coordination with Ideal Vision Center.

Since December 28, last year, a total of 423 patients from the different barangays had already availed themselves of free eye check-up with Ideal Vision Center resident ophthalmologist, Dr. Ryan Petrolla. All of them received branded prescription eyeglasses.

In Brgy. Lourdes, Cortes alone, there were 69 recipients during the eye check-up and distribution of eyeglasses last December 28; while 137 were from Brgy. Untaga, Alicia last January 13. In Brgy. Gabi, Ubay, there were 157 of them last February 18; and another 60 from Brgy. Rizal, Bilar last February 28.

Mrs. Gay Bernaldez of AMFI bares the next schedule of Alturas “Eye Love You” in La Hacienda, Alicia, March 3; Lomangog, Ubay, March 10 & 11; Lapsaon & Canhayupon, Dimiao, March 17; and Bagumbayan, Pilar, March 24.

A part of the regular Bayanihan corporate social responsibility of AGC the ongoing Alturas “Eye Love You” is also under the cooperation of the involved barangays, particularly the barangay captains who are always grateful of the medical outreach of AGC.

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