To enhance the delivery of healthcare with modern facilities in Cebu, Mactan-based ARC Hospitals expanded its services as it opened the ARC Eye Center last August 30, 2019. The eye care center was established for ARC Hospitals to address the high demand for eye centers that offer advanced equipment in Cebu.
ARC Hospitals expands services, opens ARC Eye Center in Lapu-Lapu City
Before the eye center was formally opened to the general public, invited guests from the media and honorary members of ARC Hospitals were introduced to a state-of-the-art diagnostic apparatus, Kaleidos. The medical equipment for eye reading provides results in just seconds.
During an actual eye checkup demonstration performed at the ARC Eye Center, an eye diagnostic specialist emphasized that Kaleidos would be very helpful to patients, most especially to children. The advantage of having their eyes checked with Kaleidos is the nature of non-threatening and noninvasive procedures.
Kaleidos: an innovative, versatile and more accurate future of refractometry
The Kaleidos is the binocular mobile Autorefractometer and vision analyzer that binocularly measures both eyes in real life vision conditions. It combines all of the necessary visual pretesting functions in one beautifully designed instrument.
In just seconds, the Kaleidos can measure the refraction of both eyes, while at the same time discovering other ocular disorders and amblyogenic factors. Non-invasive and fully automated, Kaleidos reduces pretest time from several minutes to just seconds; making it ideal and convenient for all kinds of patients while giving the operator more freedom on the layout and size of the pre-test room.
