LasikPlus Vision Centers Announces New Partnership with RestoringVision to Help Patients Around the World Find Visual Freedom

CINCINNATI, OH, January 10, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — LasikPlus, a leading provider of laser vision correction services, is proud to announce a new initiative, LasikPlus Cares, which will expand our scope to help change the lives of those in need through vision correction and humanitarian support throughout the United States and other countries. Through this program, we are launching relationships with, and making material donations to, both a global partner, RestoringVision, as well as many local community charities personally selected by the world-class doctors we are so proud to partner with and our local vision center teams.

At LasikPlus, our commitment is to change and improve patients’ lives with custom Laser Vision Correction (commonly referred to as “LASIK”) that helps eliminate the daily hassles of glasses and contacts. Our daily mission and promise is to provide every patient with state-of-the-art, industry-leading technology, amazing patient care and customer service from some of the most experienced LASIK doctors and health care professionals in the country, and great visual outcomes.

Speaking about LasikPlus Cares, Craig Joffe, CEO of LasikPlus, said, “LasikPlus Cares expands our ability to change and improve peoples’ lives through visual freedom, allowing our teams to build a more global and local philanthropic presence. Building off our long history and heritage in vision correction, we are humbled to play a small role in helping many people reclaim their lives both through the amazing work RestoringVision does providing reading glasses and sunglasses to those in need around the world, as well as providing support to our communities closer to home. Having already helped nearly 15,000 people through an initial pilot of the program in late 2016, we expect this initiative to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in 2017 alone.”

RestoringVision Founder, Mark Sachs, added, “We are excited to welcome LasikPlus as a corporate sponsor, and grateful for their support. Through this partnership, we will be able to restore sight and profoundly impact the lives of more people in need, enabling them to work, read, learn and live productive lives again.”

 

RestoringVision distributes new reading glasses and sunglasses to charitable organizations serving disadvantaged people in developing countries. Approximately 2.5 billion people worldwide suffer from uncorrected vision impairment. 544 million people only need non-prescription reading glasses to correct their vision, but live in developing countries with limited or no access to glasses. Since 2003, RestoringVision has partnered with over 1,400 organizations and distributed more than 6.5 million glasses to people in 116 countries around the world.
