VISION CARE SERVICES

Vision Is Priceless provides access to vision care services through a special cooperative effort between Vision Is Priceless and a growing network of local eye care professionals who volunteer their time to provide services for the uninsured and underserved in our community.

When a vision issue is detected during a screening, the screener will advise the individual to visit an eye care professional to obtain a complete eye exam.

For those who have no insurance and may not have the financial means to seek professional eye care, VIP may be able to help. We provide an eye exam, low cost prescription glasses, and specialty care for those who qualify for our program.

Vision services are available for qualified individuals at no cost, every two years if they receive a current Vision Is Priceless vision screening and approved application.
