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.
