  • Medical Professionals in Manila: Dr. Michelle D. Lingao MD, DPBO
  • With today’s generation of technology, it is without a doubt that most children and even adults suffer from eye problems, whether it may be a result of gadget usage or family genetics.

    Luckily, there are medical experts in the country who specializes in Ocular Genetics, a subspecialty of Ophthalmology that focuses on understanding the eye problem based on family history or genes and Adult Strabismus, specializing in the misalignment of the eyes.

    One of the few ocular genetics practitioners in the globe is Michelle D. Lingao MD, DPBO.

    Dr. Michelle Lingao is one of only a handful of pediatric ophthalmologists and ocular geneticists in the Philippines. She dedicates a part of her practice to babies, children, and teens who need basic or specialty eye care, and another part to patients with inherited or rare eye conditions and their family members. Apart from providing children with a fun, comfortable experience, she also works closely with family members to make sure they understand the eye condition before making an informed decision on the treatment or management.

    Dr. Lingao completed her fellowships at recognized national and international institutions, including the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) and Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia, USA. At present, she also serves as an associate clinical professor at the UP-PGH College of Medicine.
