What does that mean? It means that we work with other people to make things better. We work for other practices to improve their services to our shared patients. We work with the area best institutions to make sure that acute needs are met in a world that increasingly seeks the easy way. We teach others to bring services to more people, here and in the third world. We work with philanthropic organizations to bring care to people who couldn't possibly pay for it. We work to build bridges between all of the different people and places that impact vision services. Alliance means just that. We are allies to anyone who shares these goals.
