World Sight Day is Coming

My  staff and I invite you to join us  in taking the World Sight Day Challenge   to help give the gift of sight to people in developing countries and under served communities.    Optometry Giving Sight coordinates this worldwide fundraising campaign and has set a goal of raising $1 million for the 2014 World Sight Day Challenge.

I will be  donating  a portion of my exam fees for exams done on World Sight Day, October 9th, to help the more than 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye exam or glasses.  I am inviting my patients and the community to make a donation at my office throughout the month of October.   Just  $5  can provide an eye examination and a pair of glasses for someone in a developing country!
