EyeCare 20/20 Calls On East Hanover Community to Help Japanese Survivors

EyeCare 20/20, based in East Hanover, N.J., announced today a community Call To Action to provide financial support to Japanese survivors of the tsunami, earthquakes and nuclear disaster. All donated funds may be given directly to Americares, a nonprofit international disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization.

“Historically, we’ve organized and supported local community organizations every month, such as Toys for Tots and Mission Street Mission, but Japan’s people need international support,” said Dr. Cary Silverman, EyeCare 20/20 founder and medical director. “I’m calling on every local corporate executive to make a financial gift to the Japanese people, and to ask their employees to contribute. I’m also inviting our patients to donate $50; when they do, we’ve decided to discount our LASIK services, $500 off the top.

“We’ll take it a step further,” said Dr. Silverman. “If any company or their employee—or private citizens of East Hanover donates $50 or more, we’ll share their support at a new Web site, http://www.973Cares.com, and keep everyone up to date on donations and more.” Companies can list their company names, add their logo, include appropriate contacts and include a brief company description (150 words or less). The site is 973Cares.com. Donations may be made directly at http://www.americares.org.

EyeCare 20/20, located at 46 Eagle Rock Ave. in East Hanover, N.J., serves customers in northern New Jersey, East Hanover and Parsippany. Dr. Silverman and team provide advanced eye care that includes LASIK, cataract surgery and general eye care. They also specialize in pediatric eye care and audiology (hearing) services. Dr. Silverman started the practice in 1986 and today serves the public as well as several professional athletes, Olympians, even referees from the National Hockey League. Dr. Silverman is often dubbed The LASIK Doc since he applies advanced technologies for refractive surgery (LASIK). He uses the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® laser to customize LASIK for every individual patient.
