If you're a keen observer, you might notice as you scroll down near the bottom of the VisiVite.Com homepage that there is the following graphic: I am so proud that Vitamin Science gives to the outstanding institutions with which I have a personal connection as well as those organizations that promote retinal health to thousands of people through their outstanding research. Each quarter, we contribute $1.00 from every sale from VisiVite.Com, Vision-Nutrition.Com, BestEyeVitamins.Com, Reziva.Com, DryEyeVitamin.Com and RBIvitamins.com, divided among the four charities above. Here are outtakes from each of the letters enclosed with our checks: Douglas Jabs, M.D., Professor and Chair, Mout Sinai Department of Ophthalmology It is my pleasure to make a charitable contribution from a portion of VisiVite.Com sales proceeds to the Mount Sinai Department of Ophthalmology in honor of Dr. Steven Podos, who provided outstanding teaching and leadership during my residency and glaucoma fellowship.¬†Dr. Podos set the high water mark for combining objective scientific inquiry with empathic patient care. My experience under his tutelage at Mount Sinai continues to serve as a compass in my own work. Diane Swift, President, Research to Prevent Blindness The support that your organization provides for eye research directed at the prevention, treatment and eradication of vision threatening diseases is critically important, both for individuals and for societal health. George "Jack" Cioffi, M.D., Edward Harkness Eye Institute, Columbia University It is my pleasure to once again to make a charitable contribution to the Department of Ophthalmology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center from a portion of sales proceeds from Vitamin Science, Inc. and the web site, VisiVite.Com. William T. Schmidt, CEO, Foundation Fighting Blindness The support that your organization provides for eye research directed at the prevention, treatment and eradication of vision threatening diseases is critically important, both for individuals and for societal health. We are fortunate to be able to be in a position to make these contributions, and we believe it is our duty to continue to regularly support these fine organizations. In short, they are our eye community.* Paul L. Krawitz, M.D., President and C.E.O. Vitamin Science, Inc.
