I had the pleasure of attending the Dearborn Women’s Expo for the first time as an exhibitor on Sunday March 6. It was wonderful to be able to speak one-on-one with so many people about LASIK, cataract surgery, and the many other services Akler Eye Center provides right here in Dearborn.
The Akler Eye Center staff were also thrilled to have the opportunity to share our mission with the thousands of women and families in attendance. Akler Eye Center’s “service first” approach was clearly appreciated by all. Our real, non-teaser metro Detroit LASIK pricing also hit home for many people who have had different, often disheartening experiences at other facilities.For those of you who may not be aware, the Dearborn Women’s Expo is more than just a marketplace. It was founded by three local women to raise money for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan in honor of Brittany Crawford, a Dearborn teen who lost her fight with leukemia in 2002. Last year the expo raised over $10,000 for this worthy cause. As a female, a physician, and a mother, I am proud to be associated with such an inspiring organization.
