Surrey, British Columbia – December 15, 2014 – West Coast Optical is taking eyeglass donations from anybody that wants to help them in their mission to give back to the community. Head Surrey optometrist Dr. Karen Lee will ensure that your unwanted glasses are sent to third-world countries with a need for eyewear due to limited healthcare funding and low budgets.
West Coast Optical’s Surrey optometrist Dr. Lee has a long history of community care, participating in humanitarian eye care missions across the world in areas such as India, Thailand and South Africa. These experiences in world travel have helped those without regular access to eye care service and stimulated the drive of West Coast Optical in helping these communities in need.
Vision correction services in the developing world are hard to come by, leaving many in need of quality lenses without the services and help that they need. At West Coast Optical, their Surrey optometrist does everything that she can to ensure that your specific prescription will be matched as closely as possible to someone with similar visual corrective needs.
For Surrey, Langley, White Rock and Aldergrove residents with spare eyeglasses, drop by West Coast Optical’s store to make your donation. In addition to providing quality eyewear to those in need, West Coast Optical regularly supports organizations such as The Salvation Army, BC Cancer Foundation, The Langley Food Bank and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
