Borough Lasik Center (BLC), one of the country’s leading lasik surgery facilities in the country, continues to lead the way in lasik eye surgery innovation in the Philippines with the acquisition of a brand-new equipment using top-notch Swiss technology.

BLC announced recently that it acquired the new multi-purpose laser platform FEMTO Z8 NEO, which represents another standard in innovation and quality.

Made in Switzerland, the FEMTO Z8 NEO is the result of visionary designed solutions and performance engineering at Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems. Ziemer is a privately owned Swiss medical device company that offers smart, cutting-edge technologies in ophthalmology, carrying with it a legacy and philosophy of globally renowned Swiss precision.

Together with intuitive new software and additional applications, the innovative FEMTO Z8 NEO results in extremely high precision and enables gentle eye surgery. It is the perfect platform to perform a wide variety of ophthalmic treatments such as Z Lasik, PresbyMAX Z Lasik, Z Cataract, SMILE and CLEAR procedures as needed, according to Dr. Ches Heredia, MD, DPBO, the Medical Director and Head Ophthalmologist at BLC.

“We chose FEMTO Z8 NEO of Ziemer because it is the most trusted, with more than 1,200 installations worldwide. Ziemer has high-tech lasers and diagnostics made in Switzerland, a family-owned company distinguished by its personal service, and their cutting-edge innovations in the field of ophthalmology,” according to Dr. Heredia.

He said the market worldwide is slowly learning to embrace the FEMTO Laser Lasik, FEMTO Cataract, and FEMTO Lenticule Extraction because it ensures safety and precision, and even the Philippine market is slowly understanding this. Dr. Heredia said the demand will grow for this technology in the near future. “We added this technology to position BLC as the best and most trusted lasik center in the Philippines.”

In the meantime, Dr. Heredia said the FEMTO Z8 NEO will only be available at BLC’s MOA clinic, but stressed that if the market would require it and it would be good for the business, they will install the technology in BLC’s strategic branches.

He added that with the acquisition of the new equipment, BLC will be offering Blade Lasik at a lower price, and FEMTO Laser Lasik and FEMTO Cataract at a premium price point.

Dr. Heredia also expressed his appreciation to MOC Optomedic, Inc., an affiliate of Mandarin Opto-Medic Co., Ltd. Singapore, and is the local distributor of Ziemer’s Z8 Neo Femtosecond Laser for the acquisition of the new equipment. MOC and its affiliates in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia have been in the business for more than 55 years spearheading the advancement of technology in the ophthalmic industry.

And now that the dry season is already here, Dr. Heredia said BLC is currently offering their biggest discounts for the year for Lasik procedures in time for the dry season in the country. “With precision vision, our customers will now have the opportunity to enjoy their best vacation season yet after a long time so they better book now while slots last,” Dr. Heredia pointed out.

The Borough Lasik Center is located at the SM Mall of Asia Wellness Zone and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Borough Lasik Center in Davao is also located at Door 8 & 9, JJ’s Commune, Loyola Street, Bo. Obrero, Davao City, and a brand-new one in Iloilo found on the 2nd floor of the Festive Walk Mall, Iloilo City, and can be reached via 09661736117 or e-mail at
