Care Outreach

Our physicians are dedicated to helping everyone in the community preserve their eyesight. They help populations that are underserved and medically needy by providing surgical retinal services to patients within the Maricopa Integrated Health System, the state’s only public health care system.

In service to our international community, several ARC technicians along with Dr. Benjamin Bakall,  joined VOSH/International for an eyecare mission trip to Meoqui, Mexico in 2016. Over 200 patients had a retinal exam and 20 patients received free laser treatment.
