National Sight Week, Step Up for Sight
October 18-24, 2020
National Sight Week celebrates the impact of volunteerism on the lives of patients across the country through Operation Sight. Step Up for Sight is a call for current and future volunteers to get involved with Operation Sight. With the economic effects of the pandemic, applicants are expressing financial distress, loss of employment and insurance. The need has never been greater for the ophthalmology community to harness its collective power and change lives! Get involved today!
