Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Kraff Eye Institute proudly announces their partnership with the Sophrona Giving Program. The proceeds of this program fund cutting edge research that benefits the blind as well as other organizations that are doing compelling research and/or providing services for those with severely impaired eyesight. Every time a patient registers, pays a bill, sends a secure message, reorders contact lenses or schedules an appointment through their secure patient portal, Kraff and Sophrona make a donation.
“We knew this was something we wanted to be a part of from the first moment we learned of it.” said Joanna Chmiel, Practice Administrator at KRAFF Eye Institute. “These are the non-profits that are making a difference in our industry and we need to support them. Plus, there is the added benefit that we allow our patients to work with us to make a change in our community and our trade.”
Participation in this program brings awareness to important research programs, without which we wouldn’t have such breakthrough technology such as the Boston Retinal Implant Project and the “Seeing Machine”.
Kraff is committed to ongoing giving to non-profits and is delighted to be part of what Sophrona is calling, patient-driven transactional giving. Every time patients use the portal in certain ways incremental contributions will be directed to one of several programs advancing research into remedies for severe sight impairment or to organizations helping those who are currently blind.
“We are thrilled to be part of this program.” said Chmiel. “We believe in taking care of our community and the Sophrona Giving Program allows us to reach out and make life better for those in need.”
