“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi on sight-giving
Stars in Your Eyes does sight-giving through our wonderful family of patients. As a result, you get to be the change you want to see in the Austin community through sight-giving.
We donate 5% of our profits to local, national, and international non-profit organizations. This is more than most businesses and doctors offices. The money you spend on your eyesight and eyewear goes directly back to charities near and dear to Austinites hearts. Therefore, you can feel good about your vision and investment in yourself. Donations have gone to noteworthy groups: Cancer Support Community of Central Texas, Capital Area Food Bank, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, KUT, Sunshine Kids Foundation, and the American Red Cross. You get to pick!
Share the Sight Program
Our “Share the Sight Program” helps provide the gift of sight to those who cannot afford it. Your sight-giving can be made in the following ways.
* Each month, we provide an eye exam (and glasses if needed) at no cost to an adult or child for whom the cost of these services would represent a financial difficulty. In months when there is no “Share the Sight Program” nominee, we donate gift cards for exams and glasses for charitable auctions and causes.
* Glasses Donations to Nonprofits: Donate your old glasses at our office. We will pass them along to organizations, including the Lions Club, to provide vision for those who would not be able to afford it on their own.
* Lastly, Dr. Emily donates one hour of visual counseling services to one person per month through her counseling practice: www.austinmentalwellness.com. This is effective for those suffering from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma and psychosomatic (the body impacted by mind distress) symptoms. Contact her to learn more of her sight-giving!
We ask that our patients and charitable-giving organizations provide the name, contact information, and a brief description of how the nominee or organization meets the goal of this program via the “Compliments and Concerns” category on our website’s “Contact” page.
