RAM

Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a non profit, volunteer organization that is part of a larger effort to bring people together to address healthcare issues in their community and see those communities transformed for a better and healthier future.
At Most RAM clinics we offer general medical, dental, vision, education, and preventative care.
With the help of vision healthcare professionals, RAM offers complete eye exams, glaucoma testing, diabetic retinopathy, and prescription eye glasses, measured, made, and fitted on site -same day. All of this is a part of our effort to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free quality healthcare to those in need. Help improve the sight of children and their families by volunteering at RAMUSA.ORG.

Two websites, www.ramusa.org is the main website, which tells about what we do. We also have a volunteer site, www.ramvolunteers.org, where potential volunteers can register for upcoming clinics.

OAG PUBLIC SERVICE ADVISORY NOTICE (click HERE)


The Association's Mission:

The Opticians Association Of Georgia is a professional association that represents opticians and contact lens technicians throughout the state.  The Association's primary mission is to maintain high standards of practice within the profession to protect the health and welfare of the public.  The Association seeks to accomplish its mission by protecting and expanding the ability of its members to compete in the prescription eyewear marketplace.

Strength In Unity:

In today's complex legislative and regulatory climate, professional occupations have learned that their survival often depends on collective action and unity of purpose.  The Association speaks for Georgia opticians and contact lens technicians with a single voice.  The membership and participation of all opticians provide the Association with a voice that is strong enough to command respect in the halls of government.

Information Services:

The Association serves as a clearinghouse of information on a broad range of subjects: legislative and regulatory issues, technical developments within the industry, upcoming meetings and conferences, publications of special interest to opticians and contact lens technicians, and the activities of local sections.  The Association's newsletter is distributed free of charge to members in good standing.
