Illumination Foundation’s Mobile Eye Clinic is a free community vision clinic aimed towards the homeless and most vulnerable of the community. Free eye exams and prescription glasses are provided to those who cannot afford vision care. At each clinic, volunteer ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, student techs, nurses, and general volunteers come together to provide these crucial services for free. These clinics give the underserved access to healthcare they otherwise cannot receive. Jay Greenberg has been a major part in Illumination Foundation’s Mobile Eye Clinics with his continued dedication and compassion for volunteering. He has been in the Pharma industry for the past 35 years, the last 9 with Allergan Eye Care as the Sr. Area Manager for the Southwestern United States. His undergraduate degree is from UCLA and his MBA is from California State University, Dominguez Hills in Organizational Behavior. In addition, Jay is a Licensed Respiratory Care Practitioner. Even while he is busy with his work, Jay still finds time to give back to his community through helping to provide much needed vision services to the underserved. Eyesight and being able to see clearly is a crucial part of life that most don’t think much about. Jay finds volunteering fulfilling as he witnesses people finally being able to see during the exam and finding hope again in vision. He has been an exceptional volunteer at the Mobile Eye Clinics for the past eight years in several capacities as intake supervisor, but most often and recently as Supervisor of the Volunteer Staff. Our clinics cannot run so successfully without his help in making sure all is running smoothly and seamlessly as patients get transitioned from intake to assessment, to exam, and to treatment. Jay has shown tremendous commitment to our clinics, never missing one unless he had to be out of town! We are extremely grateful to have Jay a part of the team donating his time and skills to serve the most vulnerable of our community.
