Helping the World See Better
Eye Care because We Care
We believe vision is a human right, and that's why we donate our time, resources and a portion of our profits to help those in need of better vision and eye care.
How can you help?
We're glad you asked! If you have any pairs of gently worn glasses or sunglasses that you no longer use, please stop by our office and to donate them to someone in need. Dr. Jenn attends mission clinics often and will ensure they get to someone who deserves clear vision.
The Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity
Dr. Jenn volunteers her time helping the Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity provide eye exams and eye care to people in need around the world. They are able to provide eye drops, glasses, sunglasses, and eye care to people who do not easily have access to any type of medical care.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness
We also donate to and actively support the Foundation Fighting Blindness. The Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world's leading private funding for inherited retinal disease research. All of the funding helps the make progress in research for prevention, treatments, identifying specific genes that are linked to retinal disease, and restoring vision for people with retinal degenerative diseases. These retinal degenerative diseases include: Macular degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Usher Syndrome, and more. Together, these retinal degenerative diseases account for over 10 million Americans, and even more throughout the world.
In San Diego, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has two annual fundraising events. A wine and cheese auction, and the Vision Walk. If you'd like to get more involved, please let us know!
