Created with the Manila Central University College of Optometry, this first Essilor Sight Center offers optometry students a clinical setting where they can perform eyesight examinations and diagnoses. It features fully equipped vision screening rooms complete with clinical refraction equipment, and will be supported by Essilor Academy’s tools and practical optometry trainings.
“Access to the latest technology is very important in the education of optometry students. Through the Sight Center, we hope to strengthen training and provide additional tools to maximize their potential so that they can better serve the community and their patients” said Emelita Roleda, Essilor Philippines General Manager.
The partnership with MCU is just one of many initiatives underscoring Essilor’s continued commitment to promoting healthy vision. The Essilor Sight Center was also established to help students and on-the-job trainees conduct free vision screening and diagnose actual cases of vision problems among members of the local community.
