"The best things in life aren't things." - Art Buchwald
Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, P.C. prides itself on providing excellent healthcare to community members. In addition to the services we offer, we also believe in giving back to the community by remaining involved with numerous non-profit organizations and charities.
We have become an active sponsor of the American Heart Association, donating over $100,000 towards research and development of new programs and partnerships aimed at the prevention of heart disease and stroke. Although our physicians specialize in ophthalmology and dermatology, we believe in conveying the importance of overall health.

The employees of Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, P.C. generously donate their time, energy and funds each October in an effort to spread awareness about breast cancer. Our energetic group has formed a team participating in the American Cancer Society's annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of South Sound 5k held in downtown Tacoma.

Several of Cascade's locations have become drop off sites for Toys for Tots, allowing us to have delivered hundreds of toys to local children during the holiday season. Pictured right: A portion of Cascade's 2014 Toys for Tots donation.
We have also adopted the Fort Lewis Striker Brigade and organized a collection of items for operation Make A Soldier Smile. We've shown support for the United Way, Relay For Life, Nativity House, YMCA, and various local and international rotary pursuits. Cascade often contributes to local schools and hospitals within the community.
We regularly provide education about the dangers of skin cancer and diseases of the eye to the community. Our physicians participate in many humanitarian efforts aiding those that are less fortunate, near and far. Locally, we are involved with both Project Homeless Connect, providing free eye examinations to homeless and veterans and Pierce County Project Access, offering free cataract surgery to those without employment. Our doctors have traveled the world reaching out to people in need of care, both teaching and offering cataract surgery at no charge in various parts of the world. Pictured left: Keith F.
