Christmas Messages from Editors

by Editors of the eFocalPoint


As you all celebrate the miracle of this season, may Christ’s selflessness inspire you and fill your hearts with gratefulness, peace, and love. Have a joyous holiday season and a blessed new year, eFP readers!

As we celebrate the Yuletide season, let us remember to praise and thank the Lord for being faithful ,and for all the wonderful blessings of family and friends that He so generously provided. Wishing everyone a joyous Christmas and a blessed new year.

Merry Christmas!

May the love and joy we share this season reverberate all the year through. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2018 to all




Emil Jaca, MD

As 2017 comes to a close, look back 
at what you've done with your time, 
how you've chosen to spend your days. 

May you realize that the greatest measure of success 
is how meaningfully you've touched others this year. 
When given the choice between being right or being kind, 
I hope you chose to be kind. 

This holiday season and in the coming new year,
wherever you are, whenever you can, 
try to act a little kinder than is necessary, 

And if you do this — if you act 
just a little kinder than is necessary  
others will recognize in you the face of God 
and the world would be a better place.

Merry Christmas!


Peter Paul Ronque, MD


Wishing everyone serenity, love and joy this Christmas. May the magic of the holiday season stay with you all throughout the coming year!


Marie Joan V. Loy, MD

2017 has been full of blessings. I thank everyone who has continuously supported the eFocalPoint by sharing their stories, some of which were very personal and would have been very difficult to tell in normal circumstances; but they chose to be selfless and shared themselves through eFP. Likewise, we have great gratitude for all those who click on FB posts and read our articles and issues. We hope that through eFocalPoint, we were able to make the Ophthalmology Community more connected, strengthening the bond among eyeMDs. Taos-puso akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong lahat! Happy holidays!

As we celebrate the Yuletide season, may the glorious message of faith and love fill your home with peace, serenity and happiness. May you continue to be blessed with all the best things in life the Christmas and in the coming New Year. Cheers to fresh hopes and brighter beginnings. leadership accomplish its strategic objectives in our behalf. Let’s put our arms together, brace ourselves and transform to become the fittest, leanest, meanest organization in the medical field!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2018!

May the incoming new year teach us the value of hope and change, may the past year be the beacon of wisdom, clarifying where we need to adjust, carrying on what we did best, learning where we did worse.

The season is not only meant for gift giving and festivities, but is a soul searching vaccuum that provides us with a reset, enabling us to become our best (or not) the following year!
