The American Academy of Ophthalmology has recently released a statement regarding the death of George Floyd and the current turmoil raging across our country. The doctors at Great Lakes Eye Care resonate with this statement and wish to take a stand against injustice that still exist in the United States. Our Christian convictions cause us to weep alongside those who are oppressed or mistreated due to the color of their skin. The doctors at Great Lakes Eye Care are committed to caring for all human beings created in the image of God, both in our community, and in the world. The AAO statement is included here in it's entirety:
The American Academy of Ophthalmology deplores the senseless death of George Floyd and others under similar circumstances. We also abhor their tragic sequelae—violence, injuries and loss of life. We know that our patients and colleagues share anger, sadness and frustration over these recent events.The Academy is committed to inclusion, to the richness of a diverse society and to the principles of human dignity and societal equality.The profession of ophthalmology and individual ophthalmologists are committed to providing compassionate, equitable and outstanding care for all patients and communities. We rededicate ourselves individually and collectively to that mission and to building a society of fairness, justice and opportunity for all. There is no place for racism.
