DALLAS—Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) and Triangle Visions Optometry announced a partnership through EVF’s See Kids Soar. See Kids Soar is an in-office cause campaign intended to inspire parents, patients and eye doctors’ staff to adopt the cause of vision, and give them an opportunity to raise awareness and funds. Triangle Visions Optometry will launch the program in all of its 22 practices in May. “Everyone at Triangle Visions Optometry has a heart for giving back and serving communities that have limited or no access to eyecare,” said Anthony Clark, OD, owner, chief medical officer and chief development officer. 

“We are delighted to participate in See Kids Soar to help people in need get vision care, and to educate our patients about the importance of regular eye exams for themselves and their families.” 
The goal of the partnership is to raise $25,000 to help people in underserved areas receive essential vision care.

For nearly 40 years, Triangle Visions Optometry has been dedicated to providing eyecare to North and South Carolina, including serving communities without access to vision care.

“We are thrilled that Triangle Visions Optometry is participating in See Kids Soar and raising awareness about the importance of children’s eye health in their communities,” said Becky Palm, EVF president and executive director. 

“Essilor Vision Foundation empowers children to reach their full potential by giving them the ability to see clearly, and we could not do it without the support of charitable eye doctors. Through these relationships, we are able to reach more consumers and bring life-changing vision care to underserved communities around the country.”
