If you do not qualify for government aid or private health care assistance, VISION USA can help. VISION USA provides basic eye health and vision care services free of charge to uninsured, low-income people and their families. VISION USA was established in 1991 by AOA doctors of optometry who donate their services.
VISION USA is open to children and adults. General eligibility requirements vary by state.
To receive free services, you must:
1.Have no private or government insurance, Medicare or Medicaid
2.Have income below an established level based on household size
3.Not have had an eye exam within two years
4.Must be a U.S. Citizen or Legal resident
If you or your family are eligible to receive services, you will be matched with a volunteer doctor of optometry who will provide a comprehensive eye exam at no charge. A contact lens exam and / or contacts are not available through this program. Eyewear may be provided at no cost or for a small fee/donation in some states. (Note: Doctors donate their services and may be limited in some areas.)
