San Diego, California – June 25, 2021 – Eyes On Glaucoma, hosted June 18-19, 2021, raised $1,550 for the charity Optometry Giving Sight. The charity was spotlighted in the Virtual Conference Bag, and attendees were invited to click a button for which Eyes On Glaucoma would donate $1 in their name.
The charity spotlight was first debuted at Eyes On Dry Eye, the specialty event held in April by Eyes On Eyecare. At that event, attendees initiated a gift of $1,500; this gift was met and exceeded by participation at Eyes On Glaucoma.
“We couldn’t be more excited to support Optometry Giving Sight through our Eyes On events,” says Matt Geller, OD and co-founder of Eyes On Eyecare, which produces the Eyes On Glaucoma and Eyes On Dry Eye events. “It’s a truly great organization doing tremendous work that optometrists are all passionate about: restoring vision and providing eye care.”
"We are very pleased with our growing relationship with Eyes On Eyecare. Their support truly helps in meeting our mission," says Anne Marie Hand, executive director for Optometry Giving Sight.
Eyes On Eyecare will continue to hold virtual events for the eyecare community, including events focused on disease states such as dry eye, glaucoma, and others, as well as the eyecare conference Eyes On 2022. The organization is excited to continue with charitable giving initiatives like this one, that keep event attendees engaged and raise awareness about visionary organizations in the eyecare industry.
“We don’t plan on this as a one-time thing,” says Dr. Geller, “We want to get attendees, speakers, and everyone involved with our virtual events involved in giving back to the community. It’s part of our company’s core mission, and part of our virtual event experience.”
