Legazpi Eye Center Observes Sight Saving Month0


Legazpi Eye Center celebrates this year’s Sight Saving Month with a series of activities geared towards blindness prevention. Starting January of 2013, LEC doctors have been conducting a series of lectures entitled “Basic Ophthalmology for Primary Care MDs”.

In cooperation with Bicol Access Health Centrum, Camarines Sur Medical Society and the Albay Medical Society, LEC ophthalmologists updated the local non-eye MDs with lectures on the top causes of preventable blindness such as cataract, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. Municipal health officers from nearby towns of Naga City and Legazpi City where invited to the almost monthly lectures provided by LEC.

Aside from lectures on preventable blindness, local MDs where updated on Retinopathy of Prematury, Uvieitis as well as Ocular Emergencies. The lecture series is still on-going even if the month of August has already passed.
