Through the ReVision Gives Back program, ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery is proud to make a donation to Local Matters, a Columbus-based non-profit that believes food education, access and advocacy are fundamental components of healthy communities.
ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery shares Local Matters’ passion to bridge the gap between nutrition and healthcare. In addition to routine eye exams, ReVision encourages patients to incorporate healthy food choices into their daily diets to manage and prevent disease. Kale, orange peppers, salmon and many other foods are great sources of nutrients – such as vitamin C, lutein and omega-3 – that promote optimal eye health.
Founded in 2008, Local Matters supports the health and wellness of everyone from preschoolers to seniors. Their initiatives help families shop for, plan and cook healthy meals on a budget, develop confidence and healthy behaviors early in life, increase access to healthy foods in our communities, build a culture of health in the workplace and advocate for a sustainable food system in Central Ohio.
ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery applauds Local Matters for being an advocate for healthy communities and encourages others in Central Ohio to engage in this non-profit’s food-focused movement.
