World Sight Day

As a valued patient, we care about protecting your vision. As eye care professionals, we also care about people around the world who lack access to quality vision care.  Because of this, our practice, Eyecare Plus Scottsdale, will participate in the World Sight Day Challenge during September and October, 2015.

During these two months, we will be collecting donations in the office and we will have wristbands for the first 50 patients that make a donation! Also, if you donate $10 or more, we will enter you in a raffle to win a pair of sunglasses* to help protect your eyes from this Arizona sun!

Now in its 9th year, the World Sight Day Challenge is the largest annual global fundraising campaign to address avoidable blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses. The campaign is run by global charity, Optometry Giving Sight.

Preventable blindness is a solvable problem and we are proud to help give better vision to those in need. Most people are surprised to learn that for as little as $5 someone living in an underserved community can be provided with an eye exam and a pair of glasses to transform their lives. Everyone can make a huge difference and we are thrilled to be contributing to Optometry Giving Sight.

On World Sight Day (October 8), Dr. Kessler will make a donation to help the more than 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to an eye exam or glasses. We will donate $5 for every eye exam performed and $10 for every complete pair of glasses sold in our office on Thursday October 8th.

We’d love our patients to get their eyes tested during the Challenge to help raise awareness and funds for this great cause.

The campaign goal is to raise $1 million globally in 2015. We are thrilled to be contributing towards this goal and invite you to join us in making a donation at our office or at www.givingsight.org

Transforming Lives:

Annie and Sonia are two of 1500 children who benefitted from a recent screening program in Cap Haitian, Haiti. Poor vision made it very difficult for them to see the teachers’ writing on the blackboard.  They were identified as having astigmatism and were referred to the Vision Plus Clinic, part funded by Optometry Giving Sight, for a full examination and to obtain glasses. “Thank you for helping my daughters see the world,” a grateful Mrs. Charles said after her 6-year-old daughter, Sonia, put on her first pair of glasses!

To date, Optometry Giving Sight has disbursed more than US$11 million in funding from donors and sponsors to 72 projects in 42 countries.

To donate today, or for more information, visit www.givingsight.org

Dear Patients,
There will be heavy construction immediately adjacent to our office for the next few months. The developers are consciously attempting to minimize the impact this has on our office; however, there will be road closures.
Currently, the easiest access to our office will be from the SOUTH. We recommend taking Indian School and turning north on 75th street. Our office is about a 1/2 mile up on your right. The spaces out in front of the office are first-come first-served or First Fidelity Bank has graciously allowed our patients to use the three spots in the back of their lot, closest to our office. If coming from Camelback road, please use North Civic Center Plaza to reach the parking lot of First Fidelity. Please see the map for walking directions from there.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this big change.
-Staff at Eyecare Plus Scottsdale
