Today is our annual Day of Caring with the United Way. One day a year Ebata Eye Care provides examinations and glasses to members of the Kamloops community who cannot afford eye care to them at no charge.

It is an incredibly rewarding experiencing meeting these individuals, some of who have not seen an optometrist in many years. Some have eye health conditions that need to be addressed, other simply cannot afford a pair of glasses. Regardless, they are some of the most appreciative people I have met.

Taking time to give back to the community is part of our mission statement and provides an incredibly rewarding experience to myself and my staff.
