Optometrists Doing Their Part

Since my last ReCare Report two weeks ago, spring is upon us. I love this time of year, it promises sunshine, outdoor activities and beautiful flowering landscapes.

What I have noticed in the last few weeks, while visiting optometry clinics, is how many of them are engaging their staff and patients in community and global outreach programs.

Whether you are matching your patients’ contributions to Optometry Giving Sight or Third World Eye Care Society, sponsoring a staff member to go on one of these missions, donating to your hospital or supporting your local sports team, I take my hat off to you! Most important, your staff and patients feel you are much more than a business focused on profit.

Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in!
