Social Responsibility: "Vision Cares"
Vision Optometrists™ launch their SR programme in November 2007 with the creation of the Vision Cares Fund. This fund receives monthly contributions from all Vision Optometry™ stores based as a percentage of store revenues. The object of this fund is to provide much needed funding for Ocular Surgery, including cataract and squint correction (amongst others), for those who are unable to afford such procedures. This project is run in conjunction with the participation of local Ophthalmology practitioners. Further to this Vision Optometrists™ provide free eye examinations (on Tuesdays and with prior appointments) to all pensioners and welfare patients who are not members or beneficiaries on a medical aid.
