‘Life-changing’ Lasik eye surgery now in Iloilo

Borough Lasik Center in Festive Walk Iloilo

Life-changing Lasik surgery is now within reach by Ilonggos as Borough Lasik Center (BLC) opened its first clinic in the Visayas at the 2nd floor of Festive Walk Iloilo on July 10.

The launching of the country’s leader in vision correction procedures was led by BLC Head Ophthalmologist and CEO Dr. Ches Heredia. Also present during the event were Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.

Formerly known as Borough Center for Sight, Borough Lasik Center started in 2016 at SM Mall of Asia. From then on, the center continues to bring Lasik surgery to Mindanao with its branch in Davao City and now in the Visayas with its newly-launched clinic here in Iloilo City.

“Iloilo is one of the fastest growing cities in Western Visayas. Being strategically located at the center of the region, we are seeing to give people from Panay and Negros Islands access to our services without going far just to have a Lasik surgery,” Dr. Ches Heredia, BLC Head Ophthalmologist and CEO said.


Being the first and only Lasik clinic in Iloilo, BLC houses vision correction laser equipment that uses top-of-the-line technology manned by globally-trained and highly experienced ophthalmologists led by their Medical Director, Dr. Nathaniel Chan.

“At Borough we take pride in our doctors and world class technology. All of our doctors are globally trained and are well versed in their field of ophthalmology, with decades of experience in providing life-changing vision”, Dr. Ches Heredia, BLC Head Ophthalmologist and CEO noted.

“We also have invested in industry-leading technology that can offer you the best treatment options for any eye condition,” he added.

To note, BLC boasts its Schwind Amaris excimer laser, a high-performance laser system used in refractive
surgery to reshape the cornea and correct vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

Moreover, as part of its commitment of providing innovative solutions to eye surgery, BLC recently launched the Ziemer “Z8 NEO” earlier this March at its SM Mall of Asia Branch. The said technology is the first of its kind in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.


Lasik Surgery is done to correct the vision of people who are farsighted, nearsighted and have astigmatism. Thus, this serves as an alternative to wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

This procedure is recommended for people between 18 to mid-40 years old; have a stable vision prescription for at least a year; have healthy eyes with no active eye diseases, infections, or injuries; do not have certain eye conditions such as severe dry eyes, high astigmatism, and thin corneas; and not suffering from any health condition such as diabetes and autoimmune diseases.

At BLC, a comprehensive Lasik screening using the best technology in diagnostics and lasers is being done to ensure safety, precision, and the best results for every patient.

Unlike wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses, the effect of Lasik surgery on one’s vision is instant. In fact, the recovery time for Lasik surgery is relatively short, with most people returning to normal activities within 24hours after the procedure.

After Iloilo, BLC is planning to expand in Cagayan De Oro. The company aims to open six Lasik Centers in different parts of the Philippines to give life-changing vision for all.

Meanwhile, to celebrate the official launching of BLC in Iloilo, they are offering FREE CONSULTATION and Lasik Surgery starting at P55,000 All-In until July 31.
