“The physicians at Southern Eye Associates founded Surgeons for Sight and hold key leadership roles. Two years ago I was introduced to the physicians as a consultant to help improve their clinical practice. I quickly witnessed the physicians’ commitments to helping others and serving God. Their work has just begun, and Surgeons for Sight will help us touch more lives.” – James E. Bailey, Treasurer
