Give The Gift of Sight This Season
The hustle and bustle of the holidays can make gift shopping a daunting and time-consuming task! How do you choose the perfect gift for your loved one, when they deserve the world? Why not give them the gift of clear vision at Sweeney Eye Associates! LASIK or Cataract Removal surgery are both gifts that can last a lifetime! Imagine your loved one no longer having to worry about relying on their glasses every day for driving, reading, working, or for their hobbies.
There are also several charitable ways to give the gift of sight this holiday season. Donating your glasses is a great way to give the gift of sight to those who are less fortunate. Whether you no longer need them due to a vision correction procedure or if you just get a new pair, your old glasses can be cleaned and repaired. They are then given to those with the same prescription, or very close, that might otherwise not be able to afford glasses.
Another way to give the gift of sight is through organ donation. Eye donation involves just the cornea, which is the clear front layer that allows us to see, and not the actual iris itself. Whenever you sign up to be an organ donor, you can also opt to be a tissue donor as well which has less restrictions than standard organ donation.
