Every year, Dr. George Boozalis and Victoria Eye Center honors local first responders by giving away free Lasik Vision Correction and this year, first responders and  local heroes from Hurricane Harvey will be honored.

On September 7, 2018, Dr. George Boozalis and Victoria Eye Center will reward three (3) local heroes from Hurricane Harvey with the gift of sight without lenses, for FREE. Dr. Boozalis said “Hundreds of local heroes emerged during Hurricane Harvey. This year, we want to reward anyone who showed heroism during Hurricane Harvey with the gift of clear eyesight through LASIK. We encourage everyone to nominate first responders, friends, neighbors, – anyone who went above and beyond to help people in need and who currently wears glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.”

The winners will receive FREE Laser Vision Correction - LASIK.

The three local heroes who get the most votes for their stories will receive a Bilateral Custom Wavefront Optimized LASIK or a PRK procedure with all of the post-operative exams and enhancements needed for 1 year, all at no charge, which would cost about $5,000 for the procedure on both eyes.

How to Register: Interested and qualified local heroes, or loved ones of local heroes, should go to the Victoria Eye Center Facebook page here before August 8, 2018, and tell us why they or someone they know deserves free LASIK. On August 10, 2018, candidate names will be assembled and six (6) stories will be chosen by the Victoria Eye Center staff. Their stories will be placed on Victoria Eye Center’s Facebook page for a final public vote. Three (3) winners will be announced on August 17, 2018. The selected story contestants will be asked to attend a LASIK exam to determine if they are candidates for LASIK or laser vision correction. The exam is essential because not everyone is medically eligible for Laser Vision Correction. Contestants must also be able and available to have the procedure on September 7, 2018. Note: If contestants wear Toric, rigid, or gas permeable lenses, it is advised that they remove their lenses 2-3 weeks prior to the contest deadline, August 16, 2018.

A $500 discount will be given to all non-winning local heroes who have surgery before September 28, 2018. Everyone interested, including first responders and local heroes, may also order a free information packet to learn more about the LASIK procedure and Victoria Eye Center.

While most people do qualify for Laser Vision Correction, there are some medical conditions that may prevent someone from being able to receive treatment. An exam is necessary to determine if you are medically eligible to receive the procedure.
