Great Human Race Sends All Kids to Summer Camp

The Eye Center Team at The Great Human Race
The Eye Center Team at The Great Human Race

Thanks to the efforts of individuals and local businesses, Genesis Home will be able to send all of our school-aged children to summer camp this year! The Eye Center was a Gold Level sponsor for the second year in a row and played a significant role in helping us send kids to camp. Learn more about this great business through a Q&A with Manager Caitlin Casale.

Why did The Eye Center want to support Genesis Home? The Eye Center doctors and staff feel a very strong sense of pride in our community. We appreciate the fact that Genesis Home keeps families together and provides education and opportunities that families need.

Is this the first time you’ve done an event with Genesis Home? As a group we have enjoyed sponsoring Genesis Home and walking in the Great Human Race for the past two years. We also provide eye exams for the families staying in Genesis Home. 

Can you tell us more about your business? The Eye Center is a local business owned by Dr. Naheed Kassam. The [original] Eye Center is located in Durham. We now have a total of five convenient locations in Durham, Fayetteville, Burlington, Wilmington, and Raleigh. We strive to give the most thorough and technologically advanced eye exams possible.  

What makes The Eye Center unique? We are among the few providers in the country with AccuExam Technology, providing super accurate prescriptions for glasses and contacts as well as comprehensive ocular health exams. 

What do you like best about Durham? Durham is a wonderfully diverse area with an awesome feel. There are many wonderful outdoor parks and restaurants that are really fun. There are also some great music venues, walking trails, and kids’ museums. It is an overall great area with great people.

Is there anything else you’d like to add? We are really glad to be able to take our specialty and help such a wonderful organization!
