As Ophthalmology Associates of Mankato & LASIK Center leadership continues to inspire their staff to give back time and resources to the Greater Mankato Area United Way, over 16 staff members showed up as a unified team named, “Ocular Dominance!”—ready to take the table! The 2020 Human Foosball Tournament was a modified event at River Hills Mall. It followed COVID-19 guidelines while raising essential funds for United Way programs. The tournament included fewer than half the usual teams, mask requirements, sanitizing, limited spectators and other modifications for a safe and fun event.

Although Ocular Dominance fell short in game play, employees spent an exciting Saturday afternoon coming together as a team and living out the practice’s newly developed mission and culture to a greater extent. The inspiration continued into the following week, as employees chose the Greater Mankato Area United Way as recipient twice in 2021 for Ophthalmology Associate’s Casual for Charity Friday Dollars.

To our surprise—though it should be NO surprise—in the six years of holding the event, and our first in attendance, we hold the record for attendees. Kudos to Ocular Dominance for all your hard work in planning and your continued dedication to our community and the United Way causes.
