World Sight Day 2014

Book Appointment

Every October, the QOC team is proud to participate in Eye Health Month. With the support of our doctors, staff and the generosity of our patients, we have been able to raise over $40,000 for Optometry Giving Sight, a global organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life of people who are needlessly blind.

In 2012 and 2013, QOC was recognized for ranking #1 globally for the most money raised by any one practice during the Eye Health Month campaign and in 2014, QOC ranked #2, despite being closed for a 2 week renovation. Help us reach our goal of #1 again in 2015!
