At Ridgeview Optometry, we believe strongly in giving back to the community and caring for the eyes of all those in need. Outreach programs represent an opportunity to show the community the level of commitment our optometrists have to their community. The staff also plays an important role in community outreach.
We are proud to participate in the following programs:
Eye Make A Difference® is an eyewear donation program to help the 2 billion people globally who don’t have access to much-needed eyewear due to income, distance, or disaster. In 2017, nearly 12,000 gently used glasses donated by doctors, clients, and members were provided to VSP network doctors and optometric organizations for global mission trips.
