Article by: John Ramel Q. Rafael

Ever since we were young, we were
bombarded with the ever popular
analogy of the glass with water filled
midway. Pessimists would say that it is
half empty while the optimists would
argue that it is half full. This has even
evolved in such a way that people who
would see that the glass is filled with
water consider themselves as realists.
Regardless of whether your view is at the
opposing ends of the spectrum or
somewhere in between all depends on
your perspective.

beginnings as a graduate of this
humble institution, and a member of
batch 25 of the Order of Asclepius, he
has come a long way in making strides
in his profession as well as being able
to look back at his roots and building
bridges for the future.

Perspective, or point of view, as
some would say pertains to a particular
attitude or way of regarding something.
As Asclepians we are called to go
beyond the confines of the college and
use whatever knowledge and skills that
we have for the better of our fellow
citizens who are in need of our help. Not
only that, no matter where we are in the
world, we are solidified and unified by
our bonds as brothers and sisters; Frater,
Medica, Servia.

Sangrador has numerous
accomplishments in his field of
specialization. He was part of the
Global Alliance for Sight, a two-week
program sponsored by the American
Academy of Ophthalmology-Rotary
Club Host Project last October 2014,
and was the first
Filipino to ever
participate in the 15-year history of the
program. As a Visionary Scholar of the
Williams Foundation and the Rotary
Club of Jacksonville, Florida, he is able
to participate in the program which
seeks “train the trainers ”to a cultural,
social and educational
which centered on the
practice as well as the trends and
updates in the field of ophthalmology.

This has been something that has
been recently reiterated to us in the
person of Dr. Alexander G. Sangrador,
an ophthalmologist by profession, and an
Asclepian by heart. Our brief encounter
with him has somehow inspired us to see
things in a better light. Since his humble

The Global Alliance for Sight is a
network of international organizations
on ophthalmic advocacies which
includes ORBIS International, popularly
known for operating the world’s only
flying eye hospital and made a landing
here in Iloilo some years back. Aside

from the community lectures, Dr.
Sangrador was also the developer of
Manila Doctors Hospital’s tiered cataract
program which is a system that is
designed to make cataract surgery
accessible for indigent patients.
With such remarkable credentials,
his take home message for all of us is to
have a clear perspective which entails
being able to enterprise and seize
opportunities. We should not wait for
things to be handed to us; instead we
have to take the initial step. The Order of
Asclepius is an excellent avenue for this.
Recently, the organization, through the
project entitled Order in Action: Video
for Health Skills (OA-VHS) has been one
of the national finalists for the search for
Organizations (TAYO) and has won the
Most Innovative Project award.
With its increased recognition, the
organization continues to flourish and
established external linkages making us
able to realize our goal of pursuing
excellence through brotherhood and
sisterhood in medicine through service.
With the continued support of all the
members of the Order of Asclepius, we
will be able to reach greater heights and
beyond. This all begins with a clear
