Eye Consultants of Atlanta is passionate about the care we provide to all of our patients. We are dedicated to our community as well as underserved people worldwide. In 2012, our doctors established the Eye Consultants of Atlanta Foundation, a nonprofit organization, to preserve and improve vision.
Charitable Program: Operation Saving Sight
Operation Saving Sight (OSS) is a new charitable program of Eye Consultants of Atlanta (ECA) and the Eye Consultants of Atlanta Foundation, in which ECA surgeons and clinic professionals contribute their time and skills to perform cataract eye surgeries at no cost for Georgians in need.
For people diagnosed with cataracts who are living at or below the poverty level, the medical attention they desperately need can be out of reach. OSS’s mission is to support and serve those individuals by delivering cost-free, sight-saving surgery.
OSS adheres to the following application guidelines to ensure that the greatest community needs are being met:
The income of applicants must fall within the current year’s U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services federal poverty guidelines.
Applicants must not have health insurance and may not be enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid.
Those applying need to be previously diagnosed and in need of cataract surgery.
To be considered, a financial screening application with documentation must be submitted.
This is a needs-based program that operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
There are a limited number of spots, so don’t wait to contact us.
While cataracts are the most common condition treated through this program, other surgically treatable eye conditions may be eligible as well. If you would like to be considered for participation in OSS, click here for an application form, call 770-580-3993 or email us at OperationSavingSight@gmail.com.
The Eye Consultants of Atlanta Foundation will also achieve its mission through teaching, research, community outreach and care for vulnerable and less fortunate populations. We are building on and expanding our current activities including:
Serving on the boards of local charitable organizations
Participating in national collaborative research studies
Publishing original research papers
Subspecialty training of post graduate physicians
The Foundation hopes to grow these programs with the generous support of individuals like you and our current eyecare partners so that we can fulfill our mission.
