Every Clearview Eye and Laser Medical Center patient receives a Clearview Bear to hold during surgery. This bear provides comfort during their quick and painless refractive surgery procedure. This past summer several patients headed out to enjoy the summer sunshine with their newly enhanced eyesight and they took their bear with them!
By the end of the summer the bear had experienced local San Diego attractions such as SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, and a Padres game. The travels also included a trip up the California coast to San Francisco, a state line crossing into Oregon, and a European adventure that included Venice and the Vatican City!
These well-traveled and adventurous patients shared their pictures on social media with the hashtag #clearvieweyes and were entered to win a series of prizes.
Mirna is the lucky winner of the Maui Jim sunglasses. Here’s what she had to say:
Thank you guys!!! It was so fun taking Oliver to all sorts of fun places! I hope to extend this event and share where Oliver has traveled with the kiddos I work with. Thanks again for the great vision and goodies. So worth it!
Although the contest is over, it doesn’t mean that Clearview Bear needs to end his adventures and sit on the shelf collecting dust. Where will you take your Clearview Bear?
