Upon the favorable endorsement of Governor Ruth Raña Padilla, a free eye check-up was scheduled last March 18 and 19 at the Governor’s Office Function Room exclusively for the Provincial Capitol employees- both on regular and job order status.

The free eye check-up was in line with the Philhealth Awareness Program, wherein the Vision Medix Eye Clinic and Rizal Doctors Eye Center, legitimate eye clinic and eye center in Angono and Cainta, Rizal expressed their interests and willingness to provide eye care services that covered the following Eye Care Outreach Program:

1. Free comprehensive eye examination with the latest equipment and diagnostic instruments to facilitate faster accurate and comfortable diagnosis of visual disorders and diseases
2. Free major eye surgeries for Philhealth Members and their beneficiaries which includes cataract surgery, management and PRP laser surgery for diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy and glaucoma medical and surgical management including YAG laser
3. Free minor eye surgeries and procedures (excluding medicines)
4. Affordable prescription glasses with the latest and modern Asian and Western frame brands and styles, high definition and photo chromic transitions and multicolored single vision, progressive and flat top lenses

The said group believes that all officials and employees should undergo a comprehensive eye examination at least once a year in order to detect and/or treat early signs and symptoms of visual problems and disorders that may lead to poor work performance affecting the entire government unit.

The Eye Care Outreach Program has benefited thousands of eye patients and a lot of local, public and private organizations appreciated this noble undertaking
