about our community
Roswell Eye Clinic’s doctors and staff are passionate about serving their local community. In addition to sponsoring many local sports teams, we are particularly passionate about the following organizations.
Angels Among Us
For each pair of Lenox Eyeware that is sold, Roswell Eye Clinic makes a donation to Angels Among Us.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in north Georgia. Angels Among Us operates through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the metro Atlanta area. Their efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate people and organizations who care and want to help make a difference… one pet at a time. The mission of Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is rescue one until there are none.
Dr. Scott Moscow has been a STAR House board member since 2014. He previously served on the education committee and currently serves on the marketing committee.
Roswell Eye Clinic sponsors Star House’s annual beer fest. In addition to sponsoring the beer fest, all proceeds from our Opticwash (a carwash for your glasses) benefit STAR House. The Opticwash Kills 99% of all bacteria without using chemicals or heat.
STAR House Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Roswell, Georgia. Star House provides after-school tutoring and mentoring for at-risk children throughout North Fulton County. They currently serve over 300 children within five North Fulton schools, with a growing unmet need. Theirs summer camp is an extension of their after-school program, bridging the gap for elementary students by focusing on academic retention to combat summer learning loss. Providing this strong foundation gives local kids in-need the opportunity to shoot for the stars!
Dr. Scott Moscow has been a member of the Roswell Rotary Club since 2014. He first became interested in joining Rotary when he attended Leadership 2020 while attending Roswell High School.
Roswell Rotary is a vibrant club that provides tremendous impact on those in need in our community by putting “Service Above Self.” Their 250 members are dynamic, engaged business and civic leaders that work hard to unite people and create lasting change in Roswell. Their projects include empowering our youth, caring for seniors, honoring first responders, veterans and active duty military personnel, and providing for those who are less fortunate.
In addition to helping locally, Roswell Rotary helps internationally though Rotary International. Our club is no stranger to doing good beyond the borders of our great country. They are breaking the cycle of poverty in Honduras by sponsoring schools so children get a basic education and building wells that community water authorities then maintain. If you have a heart for service, a passion for helping your neighbor and want to get connected to your community, I invite you to check out Roswell Rotary Club.
All Roswell Eye Clinic doctors participate in the InfantSee program. InfantSEE program is a public health program that provides a no-cost comprehensive eye and vision assessment for infants 6-12 months old without access to insurance coverage.
While many parents may think that a vision screening is enough, a study funded by the National Eye Institute found that even the most sophisticated vision screening tools, administered by the most highly-trained vision screeners, will miss one-third of children with an eye or vision disorder. InfantSEE provides early intervention using necessary specialized equipment and procedures — which are not available as part of most vision screenings. During an InfantSEE assessment a doctor of optometry will test for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, eye movement ability, eye health problems and discuss patient and family history.
Comprehensive eye and vision care is important to detect problems early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn. The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling an infant’s first eye exam around six months of age, immediately after the eye undergoes rapid and profound changes and is therefore most vulnerable to interference with healthy development.
Roswell Eye Clinic performs eye examinations and collects glasses for the Lions Club.
The Lions Clubs is non-profit organization that helps low income and less fortunate families nationally and worldwide. The One Sight program offers those in need assistance for the purchase of eyeglasses. The Lions Club are also called “knights of the blind,” because they offer programs and services for the blind or those with poor vision. Their goal is to eliminate reversible and preventable blindness.
- 253 million people are blind or have moderate to severe distance vision impairment
- 1.1 billion have near-vision impairment simply because they don’t have a pair of glasses
- >75% of all blindness is avoidable
- 89% of people with visual impairment live in developing countries
Special Olympics Georgia
Dr. Michelle Moscow and Dr. Sharon Berger Moscow volunteer to provide eye care for special needs athletes at the annual Georgia Special Olympics.
Special Olympics Georgia provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Their goal is to help bring persons with intellectual disabilities into the larger society under conditions whereby they are accepted, respected, and given the chance to become useful and productive citizens. When they achieve this goal through their sports program, they demonstrate that Special Olympics has a unique value: to show the world that every person counts and that every person can be something good when we work together.
Dr. Billy Moscow and Dr. Scott Moscow are both helicopter pilots. They volunteer to fly for Angel Flight.
Angel Flight’s philosophy is that the cost of travel should never stand in the way of people receiving medical care. Established in 1983, Angel Flight is a group of volunteer pilots who transport patients who are distressed or who are in time-critical situations.
