Centro Escolar University School of Optometry alumna Dr. Lareen Dawn Baluso-Tan is the eye care expert behind Eyecare Deluxe, an elite eye clinic which she opened recently in Davao City.

With complete advanced and up-to-date equipment and facilities, Eyecare Deluxe will provide its valued patients with quality eye care whether through eyeglasses, specialty eye care services or prompt referrals to other ophthalmologists, neurologists, internists, and other medical specialties.

"After I took my oath, I went back to Davao City with the sole intention of bringing to my hometown everything I learned from CEU, all the international advancements in the eye care practice, world-class eye care services, and state-of-the-art ophthalmic facilities. Even if my colleagues tell me that the Davao market is not ready, I believe that Davaoenos deserve to experience the best eye care experience," Dr. Tan said in an interview with Sun Star.

“The optometry curriculum in CEU was the best one in the Philippines if not in the whole of Asia. It is patterned from the optometry practice in the US, Canada, and Europe. Its six-year curriculum provides in-depth study and understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the eye, ocular diseases, ocular pharmacology, optometry medicine, binocular vision, orthoptics and pediatrics, low vision, neuro-optometry, ocular prosthesis, as well as occupational, industrial, and public health optometry," she added.

With Dr. Tan’s Eyecare Deluxe eye clinic in Davao City, Davaoeños can now have a much accessible place to go for their eye care needs.

Aside from being an optometrist like her parents, Dr. Lareen Dawn Baluso-Tan is a pediatric eye care, vision therapy and orthokeratology expert. It is also interesting to mention that she landed on the Top 2 spot in the July 2015 Optometrist Licensure Exam where the Top 1-9 are all from CEU Manila.
