Community Involvement

Dr. Ortiz is passionate about giving back to her community.

Dr. Ortiz has been the Coordinator for the Fayette County Christmas Toy Fund for several years. This effort provides Christmas toys for over 600 children in need around Fayette County.

She consistantly participates in the New River Region Walk To End Alzheimer's as well as being an active member of the Canyon Rim Rotary Club. She has also been involved and volunteered for various other efforts such as the Relay for Life, Food Pantry, and local children's charities.

In addition to her efforts in the community outside of work, New River Vision Care has partnered with the Women's Resource Center and area Lions Clubs to provide eye exams and glasses to those in need. The office also offers a discount on eyeglasses in exchange for donations made to the local food pantry.

Another project that is very important to Dr. Ortiz is educating people about eye health and safety. She is always happy to speak to any group that is interested in learning about different eye conditions and how to keep your eyes healthy. In the last few years, she has presented to several groups including the Fayette County Senior Circle, various Fayette County Elementary schools, Mt. Hope Lions Club, and the Fayette County Association of Retired School Employees.

Dr. Ortiz has been visiting local 3rd grade classrooms to present the American Optometric Association's "Be Wise about Your Eyes" campaign. Please contact the office if you would like to schedule an eye health presentation for any age group.
