Event Sponsorship Brings Needed Funds for Eye Care for the Uninsured
MARIETTA, GA March 22, 2019 – Marietta Eye Clinic, one of Georgia’s largest and most comprehensive eye care practices, is pleased to announce the practice’s support for the 2019 Night of Spectacles fundraising event in Atlanta. The event raised funds for the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, which provides eye care services to underpriveleged and uninsured patients across the entire state of Georgia.
The Lighthouse is dedicated to filling the gaps that still exist for underinsured Georgians by providing access to low-cost vision and hearing services. Through a statewide network of providers and staff, the organization provides vision screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses, eye surgeries, and hearing aids to over 7,000 Georgia residents each year. The organization was founded in 1949 by a joint venture of several Lions Clubs. Lions Clubs across the state continue to provide significant support, helping increase the reach of the organization.
Marietta Eye Clinic optometrist, Gregg Russell, O.D., is a strong proponent of the mission of the Lighthouse and support provided by the Lions Club.
“As a provider, I interact with the insurance world on a daily basis. I understand at a deep level the access to care issues uninsured Georgians face and I am proud of the work the Lighthouse does for this vulnerable group,” Dr. Russell said. He represented the practice at the Night of Spectacles event and has donated optometry services throughout his career.
