Virginia Eye Consultants is now accepting nominations for Looking Forward…Giving Back. This sixth annual program provides free cataract surgery for people in Hampton Roads who are without medical insurance and are financially unable to pay for this life-changing procedure.

Since this program began six years ago, the surgeons at Virginia Eye Consultants have helped hundreds of uninsured people in Hampton Roads regain independence and get their lives back on track through improved vision.

Nominations will be accepted through May 3. Submissions can be made online at
