George Optical, the premiere eye care provider in the Philippines, is now giving FREE EyeCare 360 for everyone. That’s right! George Optical makes sure that you are seeing your best. I recently went to one of their branches to have my eyes checked. Here’s what happened during the appointment:
EYECARE360 Eye Check Up
They EyeCare 360 includes Refraction, Opthalmoscopy, Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy, Dry Eyes Assessment, and Color Vision Assessment.
Refraction Eye Test and Ophthalmoscopy
Their Refraction Test is very convenient. Unlike other eye clinics where you have to try a lot of eyeglasses, George Optical has this eye refraction test machine where they conveniently change the lenses to get the right prescription.
Opthalmoscopy, also known as Fundoscopy, is an examination of the back part of the eye. This includes the retina, optic disc, choroid, and blood vessels. I love how George takes eye check ups seriously. They do not stop at just selling pretty eyeglasses. They go an extra mile to check if there are any problems in your eyes.
Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy
The Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy checks the external health of eyes. This allows the doctor to microscopically examine your eyes for any abnormalities or problems. This test can diagnose conditions like macular degeneration, detached retina, cataracts, injury to cornea, and even the blockages of retinal vessel.
Dry Eyes Assessment
Prior the Dry Eyes Assessment, the doctor asked me some questions about my lifestyle. She asked me if I drive. She even asked me how much time I spend in front of the screen. Apparently, dry eyes could result from staring at the screen for too long without resting your eyes. After the test, I figured that I have dry eyes. The good thing is that they have eye drops to keep our eyes well-hydrated.
Color Vision Assessment
Lastly, I tried the Color Vision Assessment. I remember taking this test during my medical checkup for enrollment. It’s fun because you’ll be asked to identify shapes and numbers hidden on abstract pictures. Early detection of color deficiency is vital as learning materials rely heavily on color perception and coding. That is why the American Optometric Association recommends that all children should undergo comprehensive optometric examination before they begin school.

Thoughts about their services:
In this pandemic, it’s really important for me to follow the health safety protocols. I’m glad that they adhere to that. Instead of asking people to write their names manually, they provide QR code so people can safely sign up for contact tracing. In addition, the staff also checks the temperature of clients before allowing them to enter the shop. I’m glad that the staff wears face mask and face shield when entertaining the customers.
In addition, I’d like to commend their very knowledgeable staff. All my questions are answered well. I actually learned more about the latest trends in eye care and eyeglasses. The doctor is also kind to explain all the tests needed for the eye check up.
You know what’s the best part? Customers no longer need to go back to the shop because you can have it delivered at your doorsteps. They even offer free shipping for purchases more than 1,990 pesos! In addition, you may also get a free pair of Anti-Glare lenses on every frame purchase.
If you’re looking for an ultimate eye care experience without breaking the bank, I totally recommend George Optical. Besides the fashionable frames, they also offer a complete Eye Care package done by the experts.Karla, Travel with Karla
