The Story behind the name DIRK LUDWIG

Before I gave birth to my little boy last 2012, I was really having a hard time looking and searching for a perfect name for him. Like any other mom or dad, we want to have that ideal name for our precious one. It took us more than 5 months to finalize the name of our little boy. After all the research we had, we finally decide to name him DIRK LUDWIG. 

Why Dirk? Why Ludwig? So here how it goes.

Dirk came from the famous Dallas Mavericks Player (Dirk Nowitzki). Not only my son’s father is an avid basketball fan, he himself is basketball player. He was a varsity player from one known Universities here in Cebu City. Last 2011 (I got pregnant July 2011), Dallas Mavericks was the 2011 NBA Finals Champion and Dirk Nowitzki was awarded as the MVP (Most Valuable Player).

Not only we want to name our son from 1 of the famous Sport Icon, Dirk also has a very meaningful meaning. The name Dirk means 'The ruler of the people.' It is of Germanic and Dutch origin. It is mostly used in Dutch and English. (Source:  I want my son to set a good example to others.

Ludwig came from the famous musician (composer & pianist), Ludwig van Beethoven. I am a music lover that is why I chose this as the 2nd name of our little man.

How about you mommies and daddies? What is the story behind the names of your babies?

American Eye Center gifts OFW HEROES with a yuletide privilege

The Christmas season is all about the spirit of giving and I think most of you will definitely agree. And give is what the American Eye Center, the country’s leading eye care center, will do this Yuletide season.

In line with its support of Filipinos working abroad, the American Eye Center is giving qualified OFWs the ultimate gift with its Pamaskong Handog OFW Privilege Card through its Shangri-La and Greenbelt branches. With the OFW Privilege Card, our kababayans can now secure eye health for themselves and for their dependents from anywhere in the world through discounts on diagnostics and treatments. Really a very great news!

 “The essence of the holidays is giving back to the community and American Eye Center does so by honoring our beloved OFWs. These modern day Filipino heroes deserve much recognition and we do that by offering quality eye care for them and the rest of their families through our exclusive OFW Privilege Card,” says American Eye Center’s COO Dr. Benjamin Cabrera.

American Eye Center offers the OFW Privilege Card to all overseas Filipino workers and their qualified dependents. The card is absolutely free and entitles the bearer to a 50 percent discount on comprehensive eye examinations and 15 percent discount for their dependents. The card also allows special 20 percent discount on cataract surgery, 15 percent discount on All Laser or Bladeless LASIK, and 10 percent off on diagnostic procedures.

The card also offers exclusive discounts at American Eye Center partner SPEX Optical. All OFW’s need to do is set an appointment and present valid overseas employment documents to avail of these unlimited discounts starting December 2013 to March 2014.

Eye health and OFWs
“American Eye Center honors OFWs with this privilege because we believe and respect the sacrifices they make to provide a better life for their families. In order to do so, these modern day heroes need to be physically up to take on this challenge which is where eye health comes in. They deserve nothing short of optimum eye health to achieve overall well-being,” Dr. Cabrera said.

Excellence in Ophthalmic Care
American Eye Center has been breaking new ground in ophthalmic care since its establishment in 1995. American Eye Center’s level of excellence is backed by the Associated Eye Specialists, the most experienced and longest-running EyeMD group practice in the country, composed of 17 doctors extensively trained in various ophthalmic subspecialties. The Center is also staffed with highly qualified optometrists, nurses and counselors to provide patients with personalized quality eye care.  

American Eye Center is a full-service diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical eye facility fully accredited with the Department of Health and the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation. It houses the latest diagnostic equipment for the early detection and monitoring of all eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Cataract.  

Its location in Greenbelt 5 in Makati City has a laser suite, an operating room, a recovery room, examining rooms, and a spacious reception area.  Clients can also choose from a wide array of elegant eyewear from SPEX, a world-class eyewear center adjacent to the American Eye Center and managed by The Optical Shop. 

The company’s main office is located at the level 5, Shangri-La Plaza, EDSA cor. Shaw Blvd., Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. For inquiries and details, call tel. nos. 636-0762 or 729-EYES (3937) or email us at You may also visit for more information about the OFW Privilege Card.

Avail of American Eye Center’s OFW Privilege card and ensure a clear future for the entire family.
