  2. PhilHealth is paying for ophthalmic services as evidenced by the accreditation of doctors and facilities under this field example of which is CITY EYE CENTER, ASIAN EYE INSTITUTE, INC and others. PhilHealth also has an existing cataract package as shown in this link: http://philhealth101.blogspot.com/2011/08/philhealth-benefit-packages-case_17.html
