Presidential Award Given to Public Service Program Thanks to Efforts by Local Ophthalmologists

Nov -2015

Ophthalmologists Cynthia Matossian, MD, FACS, Ilya Rozenbaum, MD, and Priya Desai, MD, MBA, who have practiced eye care in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and Hopewell, New Jersey for many years volunteer with EyeCare America to restore vision for seniors.  Thanks to their and other ophthalmolgists’ sight-saving contributions, the national public service program has just received the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

EyeCare America, a program of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, is one of the largest public service programs in American medicine.  Over the last 30 years, it has helped more than 1.8 million people obtain access to eye care and medical resources.  It does this through a corps of more than 6,000 volunteer ophthalmologists around the country who help seniors and the medically underserved.

The program was recognized this summer by the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) which is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.

"Thank you for helping to address the most pressing needs in your community and our country,” wrote President Obama in a letter that accompanied the award.  “Your volunteer service demonstrates the kind of commitment to your community that moves America a step closer to its great promise."

"Losing vision can be devastating, but some seniors may think it is an inevitable part of the aging process and suffer in silence rather than seeking help,” said Dr. Matossian.  “Today, we are fortunate to have several treatments to help stop and even restore vision loss for older Americans.  It’s an honor to be part of a national program that helps make it so much easier for seniors to access these treatments, and I’m pleased that our work has helped gain recognition of EyeCare America from the President."

Those interested in the program can see if they qualify for a sight-saving eye exam and care at no out-of-pocket cost by visiting EyeCare America’s online referral center at www.eyecareamerica.org.  This online referral center also allows friends and family members to find out if their loved ones are eligible to be matched with an EyeCare America volunteer ophthalmologist.
