EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Coat drives, toy donations – many give what they can for the holidays. This season, Chippewa Valley ophthalmologists are giving the gift of sight to several patients in need. Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic (CVEC) has partnered with The Chippewa Valley Free Clinic in Eau Claire to provide eye care to those in need in our community. For several years, CVEC doctors and staff have volunteered their time at the Free Clinic and given eye exams free of charge. Now they are able to perform several cataract surgeries.
