Giving back to our community is very important to both our doctors and staff. Our practice actively participates in the California Vision Project, a volunteer organization helping the working poor by providing free eye exams and glasses. We participate in Operation Stand Down, a clinic for homeless veterans in Compton. Also, one day per week, our opticians go to local retirement communities and the Joslyn Center to repair and adjust eye glasses for seniors. We gladly accept your donated nonprescription sun glasses or slightly used reading glasses. All three of our doctors volunteer with California CareForce in the Coachella Valley, providing no-cost eye exams and eyeglasses to any that show up, whether they are low income, undocumented or just can't afford their deductible.
