Overseas patients are welcomed at EYE REPUBLIC Ophthalmology Clinic's International Patient unit. Visitors come from around the world to be treated here. If you want to come to EYE REPUBLIC Ophthalmology Clinic and you live outside the Philippines you will need to contact us. We are likely to need your medical records and any details of treatment you have had for your condition or on your eyes. We will make you an appointment with the most suitable consultant for your condition. You will need to make arrangements for travel and accommodation (for yourself or your companions), although we can provide you with a list of hotels in the area.
Since the beginning, EYE REPUBLIC in Manila has been taking care of tourists and foreigners, naturally making us one of the leading choices of medical tourists seeking eye care and services in the country today. In fact, we are part of the core group of providers of the Philippine Medical Tourism Program of the Department of Health. The (1) cost of health care, (2) shortage of physicians and nurses, (3) long waiting periods in national health systems in the “developed” world, and (4) improved medical skills, technology, and facilities in the Philippines, are fueling the trend towards medical travel to (Manila) the Philippines, as well as other developing nations.A little planning and common-sense precautions can minimize the risks and maximize the benefits of availing of eye treatment in Manila. Anyone contemplating on having eye treatment in Manila should:
- Make sure the facility is accredited by JCI or an equivalent standard-setting organization in the Philippines. Our doctors are individually accredited with and hold private practice in doctor's clinics inside two (2) JCI accredited institutions, namely, St. Luke's Medical Center and Medical City. Our doctors are also individually accredited with and hold private practice in doctor's clinics inside hospitals currently in the process of acquiring accreditation with JCI, namely, St. Luke's Medical Center Global City and Asian Hospital and Medical Center.
- Check the credentials of the physicians; many doctors in the Philippines have been trained in the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Our eye specialists have been trained in the United States (Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts; Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland; University of Texas, Galveston, Texas; Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana) and Australia (Children's Hospital at Westmead, University of Sydney; Sydney Eye Hospital, Sydney).
- Find a good intermediary to help choose the right facility in the Philippines. Some hospitals in the Philippines have lower eye morbidity rates than those in so-called developed nations. We are partners with the top intermediaries and consolidators in the Philippines. We only practice in world-renowned institutions (see #1). By providing a single high standard of care to all our patients, we are able to improve our results compared to the national average.
- Compare outcomes with other institutions, regardless of where you go. We are able to maintain excellent outcomes by the personalized care that we provide to each individual. It is by choice that we have avoided catering to the volumes of factory-line-like eye centers.
- Make certain that follow-up care is continuous upon return to one's home country after availing of eye care and services in the Philippines. Our eye specialists are members of international eye societies and academies and have an extensive network of professional relationships in numerous "developed countries." All avenues for communication are available, including secure online support forums, email, chat, VOIP, mobile, fax, landline, and postal mail.
