In The Community
Horizon Eye Care is proud of our involvement and commitment to our community. Our physicians and staff support and actively participate in many local and national charities. We are proud to have raised over $500,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and have recently donated over $15,000 to the Foundation for Fighting Blindness.
We participate in many charity events such as Juvenile Diabetes, ALS Walk, MS Walk & Bike Events and the Vision Walk. We contribute to fund raising events for local schools, churches and synagogues. Our physicians provide free medical and surgical care to local community health agencies as well as volunteering at the Charlotte Lions Club and collecting/recycling glasses for the Lions Club. We also provide free eye exams and glasses to the Belarusian children from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and have participated in many medical mission trips.
We have a strong commitment to education and are happy to provide semi annual continuing education seminars for regional optometrists. In addition, we participate at many of the community lecture series and in area health fairs.
