Giving

 

When you invest in contact lenses or eyeglasses from our optical dispensary we will donate to Optometry Giving Sight to help bring eye exams and glasses to children who need them around the world. As eye care and community leaders in Prior Lake, we believe it is our obligation to help children reach their full potential through the gift of sight. By supporting effective, inclusive, and sustainable eye health initiatives around the world, with a community of like-minded practices and select industry partners, we hope to impact 20,000 children’s lives by providing them with access to eye care.

Optometry Giving Sight is the only global fundraising initiative to specifically target the prevention of blindness and impaired vision by providing eye exams and glasses. More than 600 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to the eye examination and glasses they need. Donations allow Optometry Giving Sight to help fund the solution by supporting programs that train local eye care professionals, establish vision centers for sustainability, and deliver eye care and low cost glasses.
