Boling Vision Center Salutes Area Teachers

(Elkhart, IN) – Just in time for Back to School, local business Boling Vision Center (BVC) continues their commitment to area teachers and school employees, now by adding a LASIK gift to teachers. Boling Vision Center will now offer a $1,000 gift towards its popular LASIK procedure. This partnership is open to all area school employees from teachers,  administrators, coaches, bus drivers to lunch attendees.

LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is an outpatient procedure which uses a cool beam of light from a laser to reshape the cornea (the front surface of your eye). This is done to allow light to properly focus on the retina (the back of the eye) so clear vision can be achieved. Many of our patients achieve 20/20 or better vision after LASIK. Since launching the program a few weeks ago, Boling Vision Center has already scheduled more than 80 free LASIK consultations with educators.

“At Boling Vision Center, we understand that our teachers and school system employees are changing lives on a daily basis by inspiring hope, igniting the imagination and instilling a love of learning in our local children. In an effort to say THANK YOU to these AMAZING world-changers, the Boling Vision Center Family is thrilled to be able to offer local educators the precious gift of SIGHT. We appreciate you … We support you … We believe in you, ”said Hayley Boling, MBA, Chief Executive Officer of Boling Vision Center.
The LASIK procedure is extremely popular due to the recovery time and outpatient laser surgery option. Boling Vision Center was the first and only vision care center offering a custom-built refractive suite specially designed for vision correction patients. This is important because it allows us to provide a highly controlled, comfortable environment to carry out the most precise and safe procedures possible. Dr. Richard Boling, II was the first to bring refractive surgery to Michiana more than 20 years ago.
Being in glasses since Kindergarten, I dreamt of the day I would finally say goodbye to them,” said Kara Sears, Elkhart Community Schools teacher. “I am so thankful to Boling Vision Center and their partnership with teachers, and am so grateful they recognize the importance of great vision for all educators! I’m grateful to them for helping me have a bright outlook on this new school year!" Her husband, teacher and Memorial Basketball Coach Kyle Sears also underwent the LASIK procedure right before school started.
To qualify, school employees must provide a current and valid school ID or a recent pay stub. This discount is available to any school system employee from any school district. Program is valid through Oct.31 but Boling Vision Center is willing to be flexible around schedules.  Total price for your LASIK procedure will be calculated at your consultation. Quotes are not available without a consultation.  School employees can schedule a complimentary consultation at 800.283.8393 or via e-mail at or text "LASIK" to 25827 to request a free consultation. Boling Vision Center has four offices conveniently located in Elkhart, Goshen, Notre Dame and South Bend.
Since 1960, Boling Vision Center (BVC) has been compassionately serving the families of Michiana with a state-of-the-art, personalized eye care experience. Dr. Rich Boling and his team of vision experts passionately protect, preserve and enhance the precious gift of sight for Michiana Families by continuing to be the leaders in LASIK, high-technology cataract services and comprehensive eye care for the whole family.
With offices in Elkhart, Goshen, Notre Dame and South Bend, Boling Vision Center provides a full spectrum eye care experience, including medical and surgical eye care, routine eye exams for all ages, ocular disease management and prevention, aesthetic services, glasses and contact lenses.
