Giving back is an important part of Northridge Eye Care's mission. For years, Dr. Haugen has made it a priority to give back to our Red Bluff Community. Northridge Eye Care has joined the Back to School Mission by providing free exams and free glasses to all the children of our community who are in need, donating to Dairyville Orchard Festival, Red Bluff High School Sober Grad, P.A.T.H, Bend Elementary School, RB High Football Team, Red Bluff Spartan Booster club, Red Bluff Rodeo. As well as donating and sponsoring our local Kiwanis events including Kiwanis camp, Martinis on the River, attending and sponsoring all Red Bluff Chamber of Commerce events.
Dr. Haugen also participates in iCare, an international humanitarian program providing free eye care exams, glasses, surgeries and health screenings to those in desperate need.
Every October, Dr. Haugen, his wife and eye care technician, Trisha, have traveled to Jamaica to provide local patients with much-needed cataract surgeries and eye exams. Together, they have contributed to iCARE's success. Since its inception eight years ago, iCare has provided more than 25,000 eye exams, 100 cataract surgeries and nearly 59,000 pairs of glasses to the people of Jamaica.
