What to expect

  • We will ask you some questions about your eyes and vision and some other questions to assess your risk for vision loss from injury and disease and go over basic vision education topics to prevent vision loss.
  • Next we will ask questions to assess your eligibility for various affordable vision services and identify the appropriate service for you.
  • If you would like, we will help you with the first step of the chosen service, whether that's finding a provider, scheduling an appointment, sending in an application, or giving you a voucher for services.
  • Afterwards, if you would like, we will follow up with you to see if you received the care you needed and help you if you are still in the process of getting care.
