The LASIK Vision Institute “Giving Back the Glasses” Program Provides Free Glasses to Those in Need

West Palm Beach, Fla. – October 19, 2010 – Through its Giving Back the Glasses program, The LASIK Vision Institute (LVI)  is putting thousands of pairs of eyeglasses into the hands of those in need.  LVI, one of America’s leading providers of laser vision corrective services, collects glasses at each of its 27 centers across the country from patients who no longer need them after receiving corrective sight procedures.  Those glasses are then donated to local organizations which coordinate their distribution to individuals.

The Giving Back the Glasses program has successfully distributed thousands of glasses to disadvantaged individuals all across the country.  LVI recently announced that it had successfully performed its milestone 800,000th procedure.

“The LASIK Vision Institute is committed to giving back to our communities, and is so pleased that our Giving Back the Glasses campaign is providing eyeglasses to those in need,” said CEO Ben Cook.  “We are proud of the way our team members are involved in local charitable efforts, and we feel grateful for the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of people all across America.”

Giving Back the Glasses is an ongoing effort, and just one of several charitable causes supported by LVI.  The company is currently asking the public to visit its website and nominate an outstanding community leader whose contributions will be rewarded in the form of a free LASIK procedure.  Please visit to submit the name of a worthy individual to be entered for the chance to receive the gift of improved vision.

LVI’s Seeing the Good in Others program ends November 30, 2010 and a winner will be announced by December 31.
