Jaundice is a sign of an underlying disease process. 

But there is another kind of Jaundice that affects Filipinos of a twisted political orientation.  It’s called the Yellow Cult or Dilawan in the vernacular.

Today, the Optometrist Association of the Philippines announced a breakthrough in diagnosing the Dilawan-type jaundice.

So what are you waiting for? Visit your optometrist today and have your eyes checked. Prevention is always better than a cure!
