LASIK for Local Heroes Winners Announced

The Eye Center of North Florida and the Bay County Chamber of Commerce are pleased announce the winner of our annual LASIK for Local Heroes Contest.  This year, identical twin brothers Lawrence and Douglas Smith were selected.  Lawrence is a Lieutenant with Bay County EMS and Douglas is a Sergeant with the Bay County Sherriff’s office.  Both have served our community as first responders for almost 20 years.

Nominations for the LASIK for Local Heroes Contest were accepted from October 26-November 13, those nominating were asked to submit a short essay describing why the nominee needs and deserves LASIK.  Twenty-five first responders were nominated and a committee selected the winner.  Lawrence and Douglas were nominated together by Jennifer Smith saying “I decided to nominate them together, as one is just as deserving as the other.”

Both Lieutenant Lawrence Smith and Sergeant Douglas Smith will receive free laser vision correction surgery (LASIK) in December for being selected our LASIK for Local Heroes Contest winners.
