Every fall season, Colleyville Vision spends two months gathering funds and patient donations for non-profit, Optometry Giving Sight (OGS). Practices all across the globe pull together to bring awareness to the need of eye care and vision correction in third world countries. OGS utilizes every dollar raised to train up and coming optometrists and provide glasses and exams to under privileged villages across seas. Dr. Helbert-Green and staff are very passionate about this organization and donate $5.00 for every pair of glasses sold in our office and $2.00 for every exam completed during the months of September and October. Patients are also encouraged to get involved by dropping their spare change in the collection areas and purchasing World Sight Day bracelets to show their support of the cause.
In 2013, Colleyville Vision raised over $1,400.00 and in 2014 raised over $1,700.00. The hope is that donations will continue to increase with awareness each year.
