If you can't access or afford the vision care you need, or if your eye care practice has been affected by disaster, explore the options below to view available programs.
If you can’t afford the vision care you need, VSP Eyes of Hope gift certificates and mobile clinics may be able to help.
Multiple programs are available to assist community members and eyecare practices affected by disaster.
VSP Vision™ Eyes of Hope® gift certificates, sometimes called vouchers, provide adults and children in need with access to eye exams and new glasses at no cost through a VSP Network doctor in their community.
Gift certificates are distributed through our national network of community partners. Learn who’s eligible and how to access them below. If you already have a VSP Eyes of Hope gift certificate, find a local VSP Network doctor where you can make an appointment.
