We defined our mission of Clarity with our patients in mind – but in the last 20 years, OES’s dedication to providing eye care has extended far beyond our clinics. On an organizational level and in the hearts of our providers, we are committed to volunteering our services to those who need it most.

This community-oriented mindset is geared toward our closest neighbors in the Pacific Northwest, and reaches as far to those across the world in poverty-ridden countries.

Whether our providers are restoring sight to those in need, or our patients generously contribute to our yearly charitable campaigns, we love working with others to make the world a better place. After all, we know healthy eyes and vision are directly related to quality of life – and we aim to spread this principle as far as we can.

Habitat for Humanity

Twenty volunteers from Oregon Eye Specialists participated in a Team Build Day with Portland/Metro East Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, July 21, 2018.

The volunteers worked in tandem with Habitat staff to help make progress on Cully Commons, a development of 15 new affordable homes on Northeast Killingsworth Street. Cully Commons aims to provide an opportunity for residents most likely to be displaced by gentrification to stay in their neighborhood via home ownership.

Physicians and staff from Oregon Eye Specialists worked on everything from framing the house to digging waterlines. It was a truly enriching experience for the whole team.

“At Oregon Eye Specialists, we know that achieving good health means addressing social determinants of health. We provide high quality eye care, but we also want to contribute socially. Seeing our team partner with Habitat for Humanity to build homes, ultimately leads to better health, for individuals as well as our greater community” — Dr. Dinelli Monson.

Seva Foundation

Since 1978, Seva Foundation has delivered vital eye care services to the world’s most vulnerable populations, restoring sight to 3.7 million people and transforming the lives of countless others.

Oregon Food Bank

We’re proud to partner with Oregon Food Bank, our local organization that fights hunger’s root causes through public policy advocacy, nutrition and garden education, and works to strengthen community food systems.

Since 2013 , Oregon Eye Specialists has collected food donations at each of our offices and set up campaigns to contribute to their cause. We’re thankful for all our patients over the years who have made such an impact in our community!

 

Great Shape – iCare

In 2014, two of our Oregon Eye Specialists doctors teamed up on a medical mission to a small mountain town near Montego Bay, Jamaica. The mission was sponsored by Great Shape – iCare, which provides eye exams, glasses and much-needed treatments to people in Jamaica.

The small surgical team performed cataract surgeries at Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay. “We were able to help 33 patients in just four days, which is a real accomplishment,” says OES doctor Dr. Dan Brown.
