  • We support organizations that we feel strongly about including children’s and LGBT groups.— Steve Nelson, Eye Candy Optical, Westlake, OH

  •  I’m a member of the local Lions Club and have free events for the community at my office. This year we are going to poll our patients on what organization to give back to and have a portion of our proceeds from our events go to these organizations.— Nytarsha Thomas, OD, Visionelle Eyecare, Zionsville, IN
  •  We support our local chamber of commerce. We volunteer and donate to local elementary schools and we donate professional time and provide financial support to organizations serving Holocaust Survivors. We also support our local church and synagogue.— Rita Ellent, OD, The Gardens Eye Care, Forest Hills, NY
  •  We do things like have our doctors do screenings at schools and assisted living homes. They talk at chamber and healthcare events. The optical will visit assisted living or nursing homes to repair and adjust eyewear. We also fundraise in the optical with a BOGO program on higher end frames and we have lens packages from which a portion of the proceeds are donated to our local dog training facility for service dogs. — Jocelyn Mylott, D’Ambrosio Eye Care, Lancaster, MA
