Some Gwinnett County eye doctors are starting up their new business in a charitable way.

First Class Eye Care, a practice in Duluth, in partnership with Boy with a Ball provided free eye exams and glasses to kids the nonprofit serves in the Norcross area, Dr. Adam Young said. 

"Love Your City exists in every part of a community!" a post on Boy with a Ball's Instagram feed says. "We are so grateful for their generosity as marketplace leaders who want to make a difference in their city!"

"Love Your City" is an initiative started by Boy with a Ball that tries to combat poverty in neighborhoods by empowering partners to build relationships with their communities. 

Dr. Adam Young is an optometrist at the minority-owned First Class Eye Care. Young is a Stone Mountain, Georgia, native and graduate of the University of Georgia and Southern College of Optometry. 

His partner is Dr. Christina Phan, from Chantilly, Virginia, who received a degree from Southern College of Optometry after graduating summa cum laude from Virginia Commonwealth University.
