During this busy holiday season, we’re asking all Ohio optometrists to make a generous donation to the Ohio Optometric Foundation, which was created to help Ohio eye doctors make a difference in the lives of others in their communities.
One-hundred percent of your donations go to programs to help children obtain quality eye care, as well as to fund scholarships for optometry students. The foundation also funds grants and programs to promote public awareness of the importance of comprehensive vision care.
Over the years, the foundation has made a difference in the lives of many Ohioans, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Some examples include:
- Providing free eye exams and glasses to students in Individualized Education Programs who are required to have an eye exam, but who don’t have the financial ability to pay for the exam or lenses.
- A foundation grant helped a clinic in Toledo buy vital equipment, which is used by volunteer eye doctors to provide eye examinations to low-income residents.
- More than $100,000 in scholarships awarded to students in Ohio optometry schools, many of whom have earned advanced degrees beyond their doctor of optometry degree. Other students dedicated themselves to research or service projects to help give back to the communities.
Donations to the Ohio Optometric Foundation are tax deductible, and it’s a great way to support our vital mission to promote the importance of a lifetime of vision care for the residents of Ohio.
