The newly renovated and upgraded Manila Doctors Hospital (MDH) Vision Center aims to be the first fully-electronic hospital-based eye care center in the country. The formal blessing and inauguration ceremony was held on March 13.
Equipped, staffed and designed to become one of the city’s leading eye centers, the MDH Vision Center provides its clients with a host of excellent and up-to-date equipment, including the latest Humphrey visual field analyzer, an Ophthalmic Technologies Inc. (OTI) 3-dimensional ultrasonography machine, the IOL Master biometer for precision measurements of intraocular lens powers essential in cataract surgery visual outcome. And just recently, the Center acquired the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), a non-contact, non-invasive imaging technique used to obtain high resolution cross-sectional images of the retina. This is in addition to the Fundus camera, which generates excellent flourescein retinal angiography results that are highly preferred and relied upon by retina specialists outside MDH. What’s more, there’s an Argon Laser that is used to treat some forms of glaucoma and retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal holes and macular edema, while the Yag Laser is used for posterior capsule opacity that occurs subsequent to the primary cataract procedure, and coupled with Argon Laser for iridotomy.
