Your gift can expand optometry’s reach—donate today

There's still time to give the gift of sight this holiday season through year-end charitable donations to the profession's charity of choice.

"I hope all my colleagues will support our profession's charity of choice and help give the gift of sight this holiday season."

Only by member donations is Optometry Cares®—The AOA Foundation able to continually expand eye health and vision care access nationwide, and members can make the most of their donation this season thanks to a generous matching offer from ABB Optical Group.

ABB Optical intends to match all donations up to $25,000 now through Dec. 31 to help the philanthropic foundation reach Americans seeking vision care.

"This generous gift from ABB Optical Group provides a unique opportunity for donors who would like to make a contribution to Optometry Cares, as their donations will have 'more bang for their buck' and make an even bigger impact for communities in greatest need of eye care," says T. Joel Byars, O.D., Optometry Cares president. "I hope all my colleagues will support our profession's charity of choice and help give the gift of sight this holiday season."

Member contributions help support valuable Optometry Cares programs that make differences in people's lives nationwide. Read more stories about some of these foundation programs, including:
