No Cost Eye Care Available to Qualified Seniors

EyeCare America is currently running a national health campaign encouraging seniors to call the EyeCare America Seniors EyeCare Program to see if they qualify for an eye exam and care, often at no-cost. From June 1 to August 31, qualified seniors can get a comprehensive eye exam and care for any disease detected in the initial visit for up to one year at no out-of-pocket cost for seniors who are without an eye doctor.

The program is available to those who:

  • Are U.S. citizens or legal residents
  • Are age 65 and older
  • Have not seen an ophthalmologist in three or more years
  • Do not belong to an HMO or the VA

For a Seniors EyeCare Program referral, those interested may call the toll-free help line 1.800.222.EYES (3937). The Seniors EyeCare Program help line operates all day, every day, year-round.

EyeCare America also offers programs for eye care needs related to glaucoma, diabetes, AMD (macular degeneration), and young children.
