    The Challenge


    During  the COVID-19 pandemic, most OPTIMAX clinics remained open to provide vital eye care services to patients. But to operate safely, the clinics required solutions that would improve their air quality and surface disinfection efforts to minimize any potential risk of contamination or spreading the disease.

    The Solution


    We installed a range of Philips products including UV-C disinfection upper air luminaires, and standalone UV-C disinfection trolleys. These solutions enhance well-being by disinfecting air and surfaces in rooms while being controlled and monitored by Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings dashboard.
