New Eyes for the Needy
A new pair of prescription glasses for someone without vision insurance costs an average of $351. The steep price point of this essential tool places it out of reach for many. As a result, thousands of Americans go without the optometrical care they need. Untreated visual impairment has negative impacts on quality of life, public safety, education, and the economy. To combat this issue, the New Eyes for the Needy program buys new prescription glasses for children and adults in financial need.
