In Our Community

Proud to Serve Nevada’s Hardworking Families

We are driven by our passion for helping others, inside and outside of our offices. Throughout our years of serving the families of Nevada, we have spent countless hours helping those in need through a variety of charitable events and causes.

We have fostered partnerships with groups and teams like Wolf Pack Athletics, the Eddy House, and the Ronald McDonald House to ensure our community is always getting the help and support it deserves.

We have been able to raise thousands of dollars for those in need, and provide high-quality contact lenses, eyeglasses, and other eye care services for those who need it most.

We are proud of the work we have put into the community, and we are excited to give back every single year.

EyeZone and Sports

EyeZone’s Military Hero of the Game

EyeZone Nevada is the official optometrist of the Nevada Wolf Pack college football team. During every home game, EyeZone and the Nevada Wolf Pack take the time to recognize a Military Hero from our community.

This veteran, or active military member, will get tickets to the game, access to their very own VIP tailgate before the game, and a moment to walk out to the field and be honored for their service.

EyeZone’s Charity Stripe Celebrity Shooter

Over the past few years, we have invited celebrities and influencers to shoot five free throws during half-time to raise money for incredible charities like Moms On The Run and the JUSTin Hope Foundation.

On top of our minimum $500 donation per game, we add another $200 for every throw made by our celebrity. We have also donated money to Moms On The Run for every free throw made by a Wolf Pack team member during the game.

Our featured celebrities have included:

  • Actor Steve Hytner from Seinfeld
  • KRNV News four reporters Bill Frankmore and Shelby Sheehan
  • Golfing World Champion Patty Sheehan
  • Fitness trainer Camie Cragg
  • NFL Quarterback Dan McQuire

Charities and Events

Children’s Vision Wellness Days

Every year, we host Children’s Vision Days for children in low-income families to provide them with free eye exams and glasses.

Monthly Eye Exams and Glasses for the Eddy House

With the help of the Eddy House, we have been able to set aside appointment time for homeless youths in the Reno/Sparks communities so they have access to free eye exams and glasses.

Dinner at the Ronald McDonald House

Throughout the year, we help provide meals for the families at the Ronald McDonald House. We love providing more than just eye care, and the joy this brings to people truly warms our hearts.

Donation Drop-off

Every holiday season, we partner with local charities to set up donation drop-off locations for families in need. These donations can include toys, games, food, clothes, and more!

Each of our practices works with a charity local to their community, including:

  • Christmas Cheer in Lake Tahoe
  • The Ron Wood Community Center in Carson City
  • Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada for our Reno locations
