The retailer has provided thousands of eyeglasses and glasses cases to the nonprofit over the years."We are grateful to have a long-standing partner like Eyemart Express who believes in our local eyecare mission," said Timothy Elinski, founder of Cedar Springs Vision. "We are able to touch so many lives in the community due to their generosity.“A majority of people that we serve have never had their eyes tested, so they need very strong prescriptions. We are able to give them the right glasses and lenses at little to no cost thanks to Eyemart Express," he said.
