At Shamrock Family Eye Care we are committed to serving our patients and our community. We are thankful to participate in many worthwhile activities that provide a positive impact on our local and worldwide community.
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” The Lions Club rose to the challenge and today sight programs remain one of their defining causes. As eye care providers, we clearly appreciate their mission and support them in their endeavors.
If you have old glasses that you would like to donate, please feel free to drop them off and we will see to it that they get picked up by the Lions Club. These glasses are then taken to The OSU College of Optometry and are sorted based upon prescription and used on social service missions via S.V.O.S.H (Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity).
Through the generosity of patients and friends of Shamrock Family Eye Care, we were able to donate 88 filled backpacks to Operation Backpack® in 2016. These brand new filled backpacks were then collected and distributed to homeless and at-risk children throughout the Greater Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus areas. A filled backpack relieves struggling parents of a financial burden and provides a sense of normalcy to the otherwise chaotic lives of these children, helping them to look and feel more like their classmates.
Most importantly, a filled backpack allows these children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important and that someone believes in them.
Throughout the year, Shamrock Family Eye Care conducts food drives to provide food and resources to those in need.
We sponsor several missionaries around the world that are providing wonderful opportunities in the communities that they serve.
