As a first step to determining a need for vision correction, we’re here to help with the Online Vision Check. It’s completely free and takes just a few minutes.
EXAM & GLASSES resources
If you need to get an annual eye exam or believe you may need glasses, visit one of OneSight’s generous supporters:
Or find an optical retail store near you by searching “optical retailer near me” in your internet browser.
Vision Insurance Coverage
If you have vision insurance, check to see where you can utilize your benefits. Likely, many of the stores listed above may accept your insurance.
Affordable Care Act
If you are eligible to receive Medicaid, then you are eligible for vision care.
Coverage: Medicaid recipients receive one exam and eyeglasses every 12 months (individuals younger than age 21 and older than age 60) or one exam and eyeglasses every 24 months (individuals between the ages of 21 and 59).
Contact the Medicaid provider call center @ (800) 686-1516. It provides 24 hour, 7 days a week access to information regarding client eligibility, claim and payment status, and provider information.
School-Based Vision Centers
OneSight is working to bring clear vision to students who need it most. 35% of children have never seen a vision care professional. By working with school-based health centers, we integrate vision care into their comprehensive healthcare approach. Currently there are over 20 school-based vision centers located in the United States. Please check here for additional details.
OneSight OnSite Voucher Program
If you or someone you know needs glasses, is not covered by insurance, is not eligible for Medicaid and is need of financial assistance to obtain a pair of glasses, they may be eligible for OneSight’s OnSite Voucher Program. The patient should:
- Have their visual and financial need verified by a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (such as a school, church, Lions Club, Prevent Blindness, Red Cross, or United Way).
Obtain a referral letter from the nonprofit (letter should be on company letterhead and include the Tax ID# for the nonprofit).
- Take the referral letter issued by the nonprofit as well as a valid prescription to a participating Luxottica Retail Location (LensCrafters, Target Optical, or Pearle Vision corporate store) to receive a pair of glasses at no charge.
- If the patient does not already have a valid prescription (one that is less than 2 years old) he or she can ask if the onsite doctor at the optical retailer is able to donate an eye exam or they can reach out to Prevent Blindness for assistance.
