An eye care surgeon in DuBois, Pennsylvania has helped some lucky veterans see clearly. Dr. Parag Parekh with Clearview Eye Consultants teamed up with Nittany Eye Associates to provide free Lasik surgery to three carefully-selected vets.
“I thought, as an eye surgeon, there’s something very specific I can do to demonstrate my thanks,” Parekh explains. “We decided actions speak louder than words, and what better way? This is something we are an expert in and it’s something we can help with.”
This is the second year Parekh has given the free procedures to chosen veterans. The nominated vets went through consultations and scans to ensure they were right for Lasik and this year’s lucky winners were Raven Matulevich, Corey Mills, and Jamie Irvin.
