Casey Eye Institute Enhance Eye Care in McKenzie River

We are happy to share our partnership with Casey Eye Institute to improve vision care in rural Oregon. This partnership brings eye care services to our community through mobile clinics.

This spring, these clinics helped over 100 people in McKenzie River, Oakridge, and Elmira, with 81% getting prescriptions for glasses.

This effort meets important health needs and shows our commitment to providing special care for everyone. Join us in celebrating this important service that’s helping the McKenzie River community.
