Giving Back

Opticology Eyecare has proudly served the Wichita are since 2011.

We believe improving our community’s health is our most important job. We also believe our community is bigger than just Wichita – better eye health for ALL of those in need is our goal. With your help, we are able to make a difference every single day for someone in need. THANK YOU! One of the things that make us the happiest is giving back to our community. We are committed to helping the less fortunate with their eye health – we view it as a responsibility as medical professionals and would have it no other way.

Volunteering in our community with Salvation Army:

Our staff enjoys volunteering for our community and making it better. As pictured some of our staff last Christmas 2020 helping Wichita Salvation Army distribute toys to children in need.

Buy a Pair, Give a Pair:

For every pair of glasses you purchase, we make a donation to Optometry Giving Sight. It’s that simple. The donation provides a pair of glasses or an eye health exam (or sometimes both!) to someone in need. This program is SO important to us and to our community, and we’re proud to be a part of it!

Donate Glasses:

Bring us your old eyeglasses, and we will donate them to someone in need through our partnership with the local Lions Club International Chapter. Remember us as you’re cleaning out drawers and cabinets. Feel free to drop off donations at any time.

Infant Free Eye Screening Programs:

Because Dr. Barger feels it is so important for infants to have their eyes examined at an early age, Opticology Eyecare participates in the See to Learn and InfantSEE programs.

See to Learn Program:

See to Learn is a unique program designed to promote readiness for learning among our pre-kindergarten aged children and to emphasize the importance of routine comprehensive eye exams with an optometrist. Children do not always know how to report a vision problem to their parents, usually because they think everyone sees things the same way they do. This program provides one eye exam to 3-year-olds at no charge.

InfantSEE Program:

Experts agree that visual development is most dramatic between six and 12 months of age and that early detection and treatment of potential eye and vision problems can prevent and help reduce the threat of serious vision impairments. Therefore, it is extremely important that an infant’s vision is assessed in their first year of life by an eye care professional. This program provides one eye exam to infants six to 12 months old at no charge.

As a team, we know the power of numbers and how small actions can create a huge impact. The same adage applies when our employees band together to give back to the community through acts of volunteerism.  Please contact Morgan, in charge of our community outreach, for additional opportunities at
