Commitment to the Community
Eye Specialists of Carolina and Laser Eye Center of Carolina feel it is our responsibility to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Beyond improving the health and vision of our patients, we believe we can make a positive impact through charitable contributions and our commitment of time and energy to national and local Raleigh area interests.
Local and national organizations have benefited from cash contributions and event sponsorship. Some of the organizations that have benefited recently include:
