Thoma & Sutton Launches You See, We Give Program
CINCINNATI, OH, October 8, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Thoma & Sutton is proud to announce the introduction of the You See, We Give project today in honor of World Sight Day.
You See, We Give is an ongoing partnership with RestoringVision, a nonprofit which sources new eyeglasses and supplies them to people in Developing Countries or the underprivileged in the US. For each pair of eyeglasses purchased at Thoma & Sutton beginning October 1, Thoma & Sutton will donate a pair to RestoringVision.
Since RestoringVision’s inception in late 2003, it has supplied more than 3,000,000 glasses to people in 75 countries and has worked with more than 800 different outreach groups.
Mark Sachs, RestoringVision Director, is excited to kickoff the partnership, saying, “I’ve had the distinct pleasure of going on four optical missions to developing countries. It was extremely gratifying to see people experience clear vision for the first time. Equally compelling was seeing adults who could no longer do the things they loved or the things they had to do because they could not focus on their hands. Once they received their reading glasses, their lives were immediately transformed.”
Sachs continues, “I applaud Thoma & Sutton’s staff and their patients for bringing the gift of clear vision to people everywhere. Together we can help people all over the world remain productive and vital for a longer period of their lives.”
“We are dedicated to the eye health of our patients,” says Anthony Nunn, CEO. “We know that this new partnership with RestoringVision will enhance our mission and enable us to expand our efforts around the world.”
Dr. James Wachter, the company’s Chief Professional Officer, adds, “We have such a selfless and hardworking group of caregivers in our offices. They are eager to assist RestoringVision in its mission and help those less fortunate through the You See, We Give project.”
