We are proud to be involved with a world-wide effort, in collaboration with the charitable organization, OPTOMETRY GIVING SIGHT – to promote the gift of sight to underprivileged countries and regions around the world. Click here to check out our efforts during the month of October 2018 for EYE HEALTH MONTH . We accept donations of spectacles that are no longer needed in our community to brighten the lives of others, where vision care is challenging to come by. Please feel free to drop in your used spectacles for us to send to our charitable partners.
Edinburgh Optometry Clinic is Recognized for Raising Award-winning Amount for Optometry Giving Sight
Edinburgh Optometry Clinic is proud to have been acknowledged by Optometry Giving Sight as Double Diamond award level fundraisers, thanks to our efforts during the 2018 World Sight Day Challenge.
The Doctors and staff at Edinburgh Optometry Clinic raised funds during the month of October 2018 by holding our annual car wash, raffling Guelph Storm tickets, and collecting donations within the office for minor spectacle adjustments and repairs. This money will be used to support sustainable eye care projects in under-serviced communities around the world, helping people who are needlessly blind and in urgent need of eye care.
We are proud to support such a worthwhile cause. The World Sight Day Challenge is a great way to help support millions of people who do not have access to basic eye care that we can take for granted.
2018 saw many highlights including tens of thousands of children being screened and given glasses where needed in India, Tanzania, El Salvador, and Haiti.
