The doctors and their office feel blessed to be in the United States and have access to updated technology. They feel a duty to give back to other countries and people who do not have access. Once or twice a year, they take time to go to another location, usually overseas, for at least one week, to provide ophthalmologic care. The conditions are challenging, but the people are so grateful. Eyedrops are given, as well as free surgical care.
In addition, the doctors help various charities including MPAK (Mission to Promote Adoption for Kids), KFAM (Korean Family Services), Best Friends Animal Society (Strutt your Mutt), and other animal shelters.
