Alturas treats 122 eye patients

eye-love-you-news-photoReaching out to the barangay folks who are suffering from poor eyesight and other eye defects, the Alturas Group of Companies, through its Alay Marcela Foundation, Inc., continues its eye care program, dubbed as “Eye Love You”, in Brgy. Subayon, Bilar, last Friday, September 4, where 122 eye patients received free prescription eyeglasses after they underwent eye check up last February.

A part of its regular Bayanihan community outreach activity, the ongoing 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.

There are now a total 339 beneficiaries after “Eye Love You” was conducted in Brgy. Lourdes, Cortes, last December 28; Brgy. Gabi, Ubay, last February 18; and recently in Brgy. Subayon Bilar town which was coordinated by the Barangay Council, headed by Punong Barangay Fructuoso Boco.

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. Brgy. Capt. Rogelio Cagulangan and the council members were present during the free clinic where gift packs were also distributed with free snacks.

In Brgy. Lourdes, 60 recipients also availed themselves of free eye check-up and free prescription eyeglasses, coordinated by the Barangay Council headed by Capt. Macario Ongyot.

“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.
