3s For Better Vision
In January 2019, Brooklyn Nets point guard, Spencer Dinwiddie and The Dinwiddie Family Foundation (DFF) announced a unique partnership with SightMD, the largest Ophthalmology and Eye Care Practice in the Northeast, in an effort to support Dinwiddie’s 3s For Better Vision and lead the charge in childhood eye and ocular disease prevention. 3s For Better Vision provides disadvantaged children and families who are uninsured and reside in New York City, and Long Island with free eye exams, and free eye glasses. SightMD will work hand and hand with The Dinwiddie Family Foundation to conduct outreach within inner city schools, and low income communities.
Sunrise Association Day Camps are the world’s only dedicated day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. A place where they can go and lose themselves in the simple joy of childhood. Just like any other child.
SightMD is proud to partner with Sunrise Day Camp to help ensure that children with cancer have the chance to experience…their best day ever.
Community Superstars with SightMD, Long Island Eye Care Specialists
SightMD supports Pink Aid, who is committed to helping women in financial need receive the support they need throughout their breast cancer treatment.
In an effort to help raise awareness and help those with MS live his or her best life, in 2017, the doctors and staff of SightMD started participating in the MS Walk. In 2017, the event was held at Jones Beach and because of our staff support, our team was named “rookie of the year” for fundraising and participation.
If you would like to join us in either of these walks, please email email@example.com for more information.
Ice Bucket Challenge
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge started a nationwide conversation about the disease. Drs Martin, Zweibel and Mauro of SightMD took the “challenge” in honor of Dr. Frank Verdone.
Share your Ice Bucket Challenge videos on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter). The more awareness about the disease the closer it will bring us to better treatment and a cure.
Semi-Annual Dr. Frank Verdone Memorial Symposium for Optometrists
Twice a year SightMD hosts an educational symposium for regional eye doctors. The doctors of SightMD lecture on a broad range of topics including diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions, as well as surgical technique and technology. The symposia are supported by local doctors and industry leaders. SightMD is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds to the ALS Association. If you are an optometrist you can sign up for our next symposium.
