Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) and Triangle Visions Optometry are proud to announce a partnership through EVF's See Kids Soar® program. See Kids Soar is an in-office cause campaign intended to inspire parents, patients and eye doctors' staff to adopt the cause of vision, and give them an opportunity to raise awareness and funds. Triangle Visions Optometry will launch the program in all of its 22 practices in May.

"Everyone at Triangle Visions Optometry has a heart for giving back and serving communities that have limited or no access to eye care," says Anthony Clark, OD, Owner, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Development Officer. "We are delighted to participate in See Kids Soar to help people in need get vision care, and to educate our patients about the importance of regular eye exams for themselves and their families." The goal of the partnership is to raise $25,000 to help people in underserved areas receive essential vision care.

At Triangle Visions Optometry, service -- anticipating needs and making every patient matter -- is one of the five core values that drives the company every day. For nearly 40 years, Triangle Visions Optometry has been dedicated to providing eye care to North and South Carolina, including serving communities without access to vision care.

Doing good is good for business

Research shows that supporting a cause is good for the community and for an eye doctor's business. In fact, 87 percent of consumers polled as part of a study said they would support a company that advocated for an issue they cared about.

"We are thrilled that Triangle Visions Optometry is participating in See Kids Soar and raising awareness about the importance of children's eye health in their communities," says Becky Palm, EVF President and Executive Director. "Essilor Vision Foundation empowers children to reach their full potential by giving them the ability to see clearly, and we could not do it without the support of charitable eye doctors. Through these relationships, we are able to reach more consumers and bring life-changing vision care to underserved communities around the country."

EVF believes it takes a community to serve the millions of people in the U.S. who need vision care. Visit to learn more.
