No-Cost Eye Exams

EyeCare America, a public service program of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, offers eye exams through volunteer ophthalmologists across the nation. The goal: Protecting vision through early detection. They offer two programs: The Seniors Program and the Glaucoma Program. The Seniors Program connects eligible seniors 65 and older with volunteer ophthalmologists who provide a medical eye exam and follow up care for up to a year for any condition diagnosed during the initial exam. The Glaucoma Program offers a glaucoma eye exam at no cost for patients who are eligible and uninsured. Insured patients are billed and are responsible for any co-payments. This program provides a baseline glaucoma exam to heighten awareness among those who may not know they are at increased risk. For more information: EyeCare America
