Operation TLC: You Can Help Give Dominican Republic Residents the Gift of Sight

By on

VSP and TLC Laser Eye Centers are proud sponsors of Optometry Giving Sight (OGS).  OGS is a global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the 670 million people who are needlessly blind or vision impaired because they lack access to glasses or primary eye care.

TLC has been inspired by the work of OGS to take an active role in fulfilling this initiative.  TLC has teamed up with the Pujols Family Foundation, founded by MLB All-Star Albert Pujols, to bring needed optometric services to people in the Dominican Republic. A team of 10 TLC-affiliated optometrists will provide eye care to those in need during a one week trip.

During previous trips, Dominican citizens walked for miles to take advantage of the optometric care and waited for hours in lines.  This trip will be the largest of its kind, to date, in this part of the world.

We can’t all go on the trip with the team of doctors, but there are ways you can help. For every VSP member that completes a free LASIK consultation at TLC during the months of June and July, TLC will donate an eye exam and glasses to someone in need. Simply go to www.tlcvision.com/vsp-coupon to book your consultation and ALSO receive your VSP Member Special Offer of $600 LASIK savings at TLC.
