In the words of Helen Keller, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” Thankfully, the leadership team of The Lighthouse of SWFL has the vision required to understand and meet the many needs of southwest Florida’s blind and sight-impaired residents; Snead Eye Group shares and actively supports that vision as well.
Lighthouse of SWFL is a United Way Partner agency with a mission to enable people of all ages living with a visual impairment or blindness to remain independent, active and productive in society. Snead Eye Group’s Dr. Jay S. Rosen, OD, FAAO, demonstrates his commitment to that mission by serving on the Board of Directors of The Lighthouse of SWFL in the capacity of Director.
Dr. Rosen has been an active member and integral part of Lighthouse’s Board of Directors since September, 2011; he was enthusiastically recommended by Dr. Angela Kaplan, a Board Member at that time. Within those years of service, he has made many valuable leadership contributions as a board member, including the strengthening of Lighthouse’s relationship with the Southwest Florida Optometric Association.
With his expertise as an eye specialist, Dr. Rosen brings a much-appreciated perspective to Lighthouse of SWFL in every aspect of his involvement with the organization from attending monthly board meetings, fundraiser events, and other Lighthouse functions.
“Dr. Rosen is always a positive, committed supporter of the Lighthouse of SWFL,” says Linn Higgins, Executive Assistant/Human Resources Coordinator of Lighthouse. “He truly cares about people experiencing vision loss.”
