social media photo contest to find ugly eyeglasses
I’m sure plenty of people have old glasses lying around that belonged to relatives or that were worn years ago and are no longer in style. This is a fun way to interact with patients on social media while simultaneously promoting eye health.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 23, 2014

Beginning on Monday, March 24, 2014, the Atlanta LASIK surgery center Atlanta Vision Institute is hosting a photo contest on its Facebook page. To enter, applicants must submit a photo of themselves, a friend or loved one wearing ugly, old or damaged eyeglass frames. Contestants have the option to also share the photo on Twitter, their personal Facebook and on Google+ for additional chances to win. The contest deadline is Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

One entry is allowed per contestant on Atlanta Vision Institute’s Facebook page. To enter on other social media platforms, Atlanta Vision Institute must be tagged in the post and the post must also include the contest’s hashtag #UglyGlasses. Additional entries are limited to one per social media platform for four total chances to enter. There is no purchase necessary to enter. The grand prize is a new pair of sunglasses valued at $400 and will be awarded to one winner who will be chosen at random.

“I’m looking forward to seeing all of the submissions and photos we receive of old or unattractive eyeglasses and frames,” said Dr. Farooq Ashraf, MD, FACS, medical director at Atlanta Vision Institute. “I’m sure plenty of people have old glasses lying around that belonged to relatives or that were worn years ago and are no longer in style. This is a fun way to interact with patients on social media while simultaneously promoting eye health.”

The contest is not open to employees or relatives of employees of Atlanta Vision Institute and Atlanta Vision Clinic. The contest is not associated with, sponsored or endorsed by Facebook.

Dr. Ashraf is the founder of the Atlanta Vision Institute and a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in corneal and refractive surgery, as well as other treatments for astigmatism, glaucoma, cataracts and other eye conditions.
