Shofner Vision Center created “Operation Military June” to provide significant funds and public awareness for non-for profit organizations that help both active and retired military personnel and their families.
WHO: Anyone seeking to improve their vision and who qualifies for LASIK/PRK Vision Correction Surgery can Join The Vision Mission with Shofner Vision Center.
WHAT: Patients that contact Shofner Vision Center during the Month of JUNE and schedule a free LASIK evaluation and ops to have LASIK surgery upon qualifying may select a non-for-profit for Shofner Vision Center to gift $200 ($100/eye) on their behalf.
WHERE: Shofner Vision Center is conveniently located in the heart of middle Tennessee, Medical Plaza II at 2021 Church Street, Suite 300, Nashville, TN 37203.
WHY: Our soldiers have made and make sacrifices to provide safety for our country. The participating non-for-profits are selfless local organizations that make a difference in the lives of those who served and also their families. Let’s face it, they can use our help.
The Operation Scoop
Shofner Vision Center will promote Military June and gift $200 ($100 per eye) for each LASIK (or PRK) appointment booked during Military June (the patient must subsequently have the procedure). Please NOTE: A patient does not have to have surgery in June; just book an appointment during June.
The patient pays the same low LASIK price (one of the most affordable in Middle Tennessee) and Shofner absorbs the cost of the donation. Although the appointment must be made in June, both the LASIK evaluation and surgery can take place anytime during 2014. When surgery is performed, Shofner shall issue a check for $200 payable to one of the non-profit organizations chosen by the patient.
