History of Peregrine Eye and Laser Institute

Mr. Jimmy Tan and Dr. Harvey Uy reunited in 2012. As both enthusiastically talked about their professions, Dr. Uy shared his sentiments that no one in this nation should go blind. He believed that the Philippines was in great need of compassionate and
state-of-the-art eye care.


Sharing a common desire to serve and make a difference, the two friends made a pact and started on their journey. This desire fueled the vision of building the best-in-class center for ocular research and eye care.

On January 2, 2013, Peregrine Eye and Laser Institute (PELI) opened its first clinic in Binondo, Manila.

Being first is the mark of a true innovator. This is why we strive to be the first in everything we do, especially when it comes to your eye care needs.

  • The first to have a fully integrated Electronic Medical Records with Zeiss Forum interface in the Philippines. Because of this, our patients enjoy lesser waiting time and a more accurate medical diagnosis.
  • The first medical facility to commercially utilize the Alcon CENTURION ® Vision System technology for a faster and safer cataract surgery.
  • The first in the Philippines to employ a Zeiss Callisto computer guided cataract surgery treatment system for astigmatism correction. This equipment supports ophthalmologists in making the precise alignment in astigmatism treatment in order to deliver excellent outcomes for optimal vision after surgery
  • The first to have Lensar Femtocataract laser unit that pioneered robotic cataract surgery- this enables the eye surgeon to bring cataract surgery closer to perfection.
  • The first in the Philippines to use the CIRRUS AngioPlex™ OCT Angiography, which can safely diagnose diseases of the retina or film at the back of the eye without using flourescen dye.
