GIVE BACK, GIVE BETTER
Eye Columbus has been serving the Columbus Ohio community for generations, and nothing is more important to the Eye Columbus team than supporting the people and organizations that make our hometown great.
When you choose Eye Columbus as your home for quality eyewear you are choosing to support an independent, locally-owned business. More so, you can be assured that a portion of every sale at Eye Columbus goes back into the community.
In 2010 we launched our Give Back, Give Better program. A program that is designed and focused on supporting the community that has supported the practices of Eye Columbus for over 50 years.
Eye Columbus is a proud sponsor and supporter of the following organizations.
Foundation Fighting Blindness
