Optometry Giving Sight
Dr’s Joanne and Tem Gronquist recently took a trip to Boston where they attended a Vision Source meeting. At this Vision Source meeting the doctors came across a charity that they are now donors for by the name of Optometry Giving Sight (OGS). Optometry Giving Sight was founded in 2003 by World Council of Optometry along with Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation which are UK based but Optometry Giving Sight landed in the US in 2005. OGS strive to target the prevention of blindness and people with impaired vision who do not have access to eye exams. OGS has teamed up with Coopervision, a contact lens manufacturer who supply rebates to patients. By teaming up with Coopervision, patients can now elect to have their rebates sent to the charity instead of themselves. The doctors and OGS both strive to preserve the gift of sight.
