Flaum Eye Institute / Ways to Help / Volunteer - Friends of the Eye Institute

Welcome to Friends of the Eye Institute


Thank you for taking the time to explore the many opportunities available for helping our community. Friends of the Eye Institute is a new volunteer organization composed of grateful patients and community members interested in the Flaum Eye Institute’s missions of research, education, patient care and development of new technologies. In addition to receiving our “Vision for the Future” quarterly newsletter, you will be informed of educational and outreach activities in which you may choose to participate. Let's share a common goal of making our region and the world a better place to see.

Some examples of volunteer activities include staffing of glaucoma screenings and pediatric vision testing as well as distribution of educational materials about eye health.  Please check all the areas that interest you.
