We are Taking 20/20 Back by Giving it Away
The year 2020 (or as we like it 20/20) was supposed to be our year – we are eyecare professionals that strive to achieve 20/20 vision all day everyday. We did not see this coming.
Rather than carry resentment towards 2020, we decided to take back the good connotation of our favorite number.
Throughout November, with each patient purchase of iGreen Hi Tech Frames, both ready to wear and custom designs, SeePort Optometry will provide an eye exam, frames and lenses to a person in our community that is in need struggling with less than perfect vision. This year has taken away a lot of things so we are going to do what we can to give back.
Here is how it works:
♥ A patient purchases an iGreen frame in our optical when choosing eyewear.
♥The patient will pick an icon that has been randomly assigned to a community member in need.
♥This will ensure that HIPAA is respected by keeping it anonymous.
♥Team SeePort Optometry will contact the prospective patient to schedule an exam and eyewear fitting.
♥The patient will receive new eyewear, and restore clarity to the world around them.
♥20/20 ends with a community that can see clearly thanks to their neighbors.
What You Can Do:
Fill out the form below to nominate someone in our North Port Community that needs eye care and eyewear. This person may be struggling in school, at work, driving, or enjoying activities they usually love.
Who can be nominated? Anyone that is struggling to see but may not be able to afford eyecare right now. Some examples of candidates:
Students – teachers, please nominate kiddos you see having a hard time in class or on the computer
Hospitality Employees – Servers, Bartenders, Cooks, Restaurant Owners, Host/Hostesses
Theme Park Cast Members or Employees
Retail shop owners and employees
Healthcare workers within an practice deemed non essential or elective
Assisted living or nursing home residents
What We Do:
Between November 3rd and November 14th, when patients choose an iGreen from our inventory or design their own custom frame, we will contact a submitted nominee to schedule them for an appointment.
- Why November? In 2009, November 3rd was the day we opened SeePort Optometry’s doors. Construction had finally completed and we were ready to serve the community.
- Exactly 11 days later, on November 14th, Dr. and Mrs. Hicks were married on Siesta Key!
- The rest is history……..
The nominee with then be welcomed into our practice as a patient, receiving a comprehensive eye exam from Dr. Hicks as well as a frame and single vision lenses.
