Each year on 9/11, Rochester Eye and Laser awards a current Rochester first responders a free LASIK procedure – the gift of sight without glasses. Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians, and Police Officers can register for the chance to receive the surgery on a date chosen close to September 11th .
Eligible First Responders can enter at the Rochester Eye & Laser Center Facebook page by telling us why they or someone they know deserves free LASIK. Our staff chooses three stories from the entries, and those contestants are invited for a LASIK exam to determine if they are good candidates for the procedure. Contestants must verify they are able and available to have the procedure on a date chosen close to September 11.
Selected stories will be placed on our Facebook page for a final public vote for the winner.
We are proud to sponsor this program, and we are deeply pleased to honor those who serve us so selflessly with the gift of clearly better vision.
