People : Dr. Noel Jusay Lacsamana - The Good Eye Doctor

Dr. Noel J. Lacsamana
I first heard the name of Dr. Noel Lacsamana on the long running noontime TV show "Eat Bulaga". Bossing Vic Sotto was recommending him to an audience with an eye problem. A month ago, listening to the radio, I chanced upon a talk show-medical program. It was hosted by popular comedian Shalala and . . .you guess it right : Dr. Noel Lacsamana. The hosts were talking about eye problems, and listeners were calling and consulting with the host-doctor. Having an eye problem myself, I continued listening. The program was rather educational and entertaining, both hosts were witty and funny with their repartee.

The second time I tuned in to the program, Dr. Lacsamana greeted some of his friends who to my surprise are also my friends. Learning that we have common friends I became curious who this doctor is.

A week ago, my good friend Ric Umali, a rotarian and the incoming president of Don Bosco High School-San Fernando mentioned that Dr. Lacsamana is an alumnus of Don Bosco and a friend. I realized  that it was my "cabalen" connection as the reason why I have common friends with the good doctor. A case of "six degrees of separation"*.

I found out that Dr. Lacsamana is a very popular eye doctor based in San Fernando, Pampanga. He studied at the Ateneo as a scholar, and took his medical degree at the Fatima School of Medicine.
He founded the International Eye Center**.

The few times I listened to his program, a lot of people and patients only have good words for him, not only for his skills as an eye doctor but also his being a good person.

But what really impressed me about the good doctor was learning of his giving free treatment to indigent patients on a regular basis. He said that it was his way of paying back to the society for the good fortune and blessing he has received. A good eye doctor indeed.

*"Six degrees of separation refers to the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, "a friend of a friend" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer."
