At St. Marys Optometry, we believe strongly in giving back to the community and caring for the eyes of all those in need. Throughout the year our office raises money for Optometry Giving Sight and participates in World Sight Day in October. Each April Dr. Venn participates in the Run for Retina which raises money to support the Ivey Eye Institute in London ON. On the Saturday of Heritage Festival we open our practice to hold our “Groovy UV” day where we promote children’s eye health by giving sunglasses to children. Since we opened the practice we have given away more than 1200 pairs of sunglasses and plan to give away 200 more pairs in 2018!
