Shofner Vision Center created "Operation Military June" to provide significant funds and public awareness for local not-for-profit organizations that help both active and retired military personnel and their families. "We created Operation Military June in 2013 and decided we should launch it again this year to continue our efforts in building awareness for the organizations that are critical to helping our military and their families," says Dr. Stewart Shofner. Dr. Shofner also states, "We at Shofner Vision Center hope to gain more funding this year and also public awareness for these not-for-profits serving the military."

Operation Military June
Shofner Vision Center will promote Operation Military June and gift $200 ($100 per eye) for each LASIK or PRK appointment booked during the month of June (the patient, if deemed a good candidate for LASIK, must subsequently have the procedure). The patient receives the most affordable LASIK price in Middle Tennessee and Shofner Vision makes the donation on behalf of the patient. Although the appointment must be made in June, both the LASIK evaluation and surgery can take place anytime during 2014.
