Company History

Asian Eye Institute is a culmination of the vision and perseverance Lopez Group of Companies Chairman Emeritus Mr. Oscar M. Lopez and world renowned Filipino-American ophthalmologist Dr. Felipe I. Tolentino.

For many years, Mr. Lopez traveled to Boston to avail of the specialized treatments for his glaucoma. During his visits, he established an enduring friendship with Dr. Tolentino. They recognized the Filipinos’ urgent need for quality eye care, leading them to establishing a center of excellence in eye care in the Philippines.

Dr. Tolentino then selected Harvard-trained ophthalmologists with different specializations to be the core medical team of Asian Eye. Mr. Lopez, on the other hand, mobilized his management team to organize and establish the center, with the support of business and public service leaders who believed and shared the same vision. Through their efforts, the far-reaching dream of providing quality eye care to Filipinos is now a reality.



Asian Eye shareholders include some of the most distinguished names in the Philippines and in the world, known not only for their achievements in their respective fields but also for their social consciousness and humanitarian spirit.
