An eye train that aims to serve as a primary eye health care clinic is even powered doubly through the SPECS ambulatory surgical clinic where patients with cataracts, glaucoma, squinting and other major eye conditions that would need surgical intervention may now be attended with specialized care and treatment.
The said ambulatory clinic houses special equipment that only tertiary hospitals in the Philippines own. This is a challenge according to the SPECS head clinician at St. John of God since it would need proper maintenance over time.
The strategy of the clinic is to gather at least 15 to 20 patients for surgical operation in order to lessen huge cost and consequently optimizing the preparation and usage of the materials and equipment.
“We are so grateful that an effort like this is made possible through the help of the international donors especially Dr. Pasqualino, our Canadian eye doctor co-founder for helping us build this second clinic which addressed the opthalmologic needs of our patients examined in our first clinic, the Eye Train” shared the operations head of the clinic.
The ambulatory clinic is located at St. John of God Special School at Hidalgo Street in Quiapo Manila. The said clinic has its own operating Room, clinic area, and waiting area and can accommodate patients referred by the clinicians from the Eye Train in Tutuban, PNR grounds.
