October 13 is World Sight Day. Last year Eye Etiquette, patients, and customers celebrated by donating money and glasses. We raised enough money for over sixty people in countries such as Haiti to be able to have an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
Come in anytime this October to donate cash to Optometry Giving Sight. You can also donate glasses you no longer wear for Lions Recycle For Sight. These donations help the people of developing countries experience the gift of vision. $25 provides five people with an exam and glasses!
You’re welcome to include your email address with your donated glasses. When your old glasses find their way to a new home, sometimes the wearers like to send a thank you message or picture of them enjoying your glasses!
