At EFP Opticians, we believe vision is one of our most precious gifts.  This is the driving force behind everything we do.  Our Doctors and Opticians work hard to stay up-to-date on the newest trends in technology and eyewear.  It is also why we work closely with other medical professionals and organizations that share our mission.

As part of our involvement and partnership in the community, we are excited to introduce you to Eversight.  Their goal is to restore sight and prevent blindness through the healing power of donation, transplantation and research.  Eversight’s mission began in 1947 as Illinois Eye Bank established as the fourth eye bank in the country.  Because of their work and other eye banks in the country, there is no wait list for cornea transplants in the US.  Learn more about the organization and their mission here.

We will join Eversight’s Seeing is Believing Campaign for the month of November to help raise money to help make sure no one is denied the chance to see life’s most precious moments.  During November, a portion of all sales at EFP Opticians will be donated to Eversight.  Visit one of our locations to purchase your new glasses, see one of our Doctor’s for your annual eye exam, and join us in impacting someone’s life with the gift of sight.  You can utilize your insurance benefits and Flex spending before the end of the year and make a difference at the same time.  Learn more about the Seeing is Believing campaign here.

The miracle of cornea transplantation begins with the selfless generosity of a donor and their family who, in their time of grief, say yes to donation.  To learn more about how you can become an organ donor, visit lifegoeson.com.
