We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Coastal Vision, a family eye care provider with four locations in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, VA areas. The optometrists at Coastal Vision provide comprehensive eye care and excellent services to their patients.
While speaking with Dr. Beach, co-owner and doctor of Coastal Vision, we learned about his passion for giving back to the community. “For me, giving back is an act of gratitude for the blessings I’ve been given and it’s an expression of faith in a greater purpose,” Dr. Beach said.
Dr. Beach started his own practice six years ago from scratch and understands the difficulty of lacking resources to give on a larger scale. However, he still found ways to give in small increments. After joining with Dr.’s Nilsson, Lin, and Wang to purchase Coastal Vision in 2013, he knew this was their opportunity to give tremendously more than they had previously.
The doctors at Coastal Vision soon began the “Coastal Vision Cares” Initiative in which they donate a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair purchased. This allows patients to be a vital part in the process of giving back.
After learning about the HIS Vision Project, Dr. Beach contacted CEO Melinda Wilson to learn how to get involved and make an impact alongside our organization. To date, Coastal Vision has donated 450 pairs of glasses to HIS Vision Project in a matter of only two months.
Coastal Vision hopes to continue donating an average of 200-225 pairs of glasses per month to HIS Vision. We cannot express our gratitude enough for their partnership with us; we are thankful for their willingness and passion to be on board with our vision.
