The holidays can be a hectic time of year, and all the hustle and bustle can make gift shopping a daunting task! It might seem impossible to choose the perfect gift for your loved one when you feel that they deserve the world. Why not give them the gift of clear vision at San Antonio Eye Specialists! LASIK, PRK, and laser cataract surgery are all incredible gifts that can last a lifetime! Just imagine your loved one no longer having to rely on their glasses for their everyday tasks such as driving, reading, or their hobbies. To learn more about any of these procedures, please call our San Antonio office at (210) 822-9800.
There are also several charitable ways to give the gift of sight this Christmas season. One way is to donate your glasses to help give the gift of sight to those who are less fortunate. If you no longer need glasses after a vision correction or if you have gotten a new pair, your old glasses can be cleaned up and repaired. They are then given to those with the same or similar prescription that would otherwise not be able to afford glasses. If you want to learn more about glasses donation, visit www.lionsclub.org or www.onesight.org.
Another way to give the gift of sight is through organ donation. Eye donation involves just the cornea, which is the front protective layer that allows us to see, and not the actual iris. Whenever you sign up to be an organ donor, you can also opt to be a tissue donor as well which has less restrictions than standard organ donation. By becoming a donor, you can leave behind the gift of sight for someone else that is in need. To learn more about cornea donation, visit www.organdonor.gov.
