Aetna teams with nonprofit and local charity to offer vision care to over 275 children and adults at two-day clinic
From November 17 to 19, OneSight, a leading global vision care nonprofit, and North Fulton Community Charities, an organization that empowers North Atlanta, Georgia, residents through emergency assistance, partnered to offer free eye exams and glasses to over 275 children and adults. The three-day charitable clinic was sponsored by Aetna, a CVS Health company, which contributed $50,000.
The event addressed unresolved vision care needs for North Atlantans who may otherwise lack access. Leveraging OneSight’s proven clinic model and manufacturing capabilities, most participants in need of glasses received their newly prescribed eyewear on-site.
“Aetna is committed to extending care to all those who are in need,” said Aetna Market Leader Richard Weiss. “The opportunity to support an event with such a positive impact on the health of the Atlanta region was a natural one. It’s something we saw clearly.”
“NFCC is excited to partner with OneSight to connect families in the community to this impactful medical resource,” said NFCC Director of Assistance Carol Swan. “Vision care is essential, but also elusive for those who are financially vulnerable and can’t afford it. This is a great opportunity for our community, and we are proud to work with OneSight to help them realize it.”
