New Eyes purchases new prescription eyeglasses for low-income individuals in the U.S. through a voucher program. To be eligible for our program, applicants must:
- Have household income at or below 200% of the U.S. Poverty guidelines.
- Have had a recent eye exam with a pupillary distance measurement (or click here to learn how to measure pupillary distance) . New Eyes does not pay for eye exams. Contact Us if you need assistance in locating a source of free or low-cost eye exams.
- Have no other resources available to them to pay for glasses, including federal or state programs or assistance from local charitable organizations.
A New Eyes voucher provides a basic pair of single or lined bifocal eyeglasses.
New Eyes does not allow the purchase of more costly glasses at a client’s additional expense. The intent of our program is to help those most in need.
