Mobile Eye Care Clinics
Eyes of Hope features mobile eye care clinics that connect people in need with a local VSP network doctor in their community. Each clinic is outfitted with an eye exam room and portable exam equipment to provide comprehensive eye exams, an eyewear dispensary stocked with popular frame brands, and an optical finishing lab.
Our mobile clinics program developed from the relief response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. VSP was on the scene to help doctors, whose practices had been destroyed, quickly return to providing eye care, and to offer no-cost replacement eyewear for community members.
Today, together with VSP network doctors, three mobile eye care clinics are ready to transform sight wherever it’s needed most. When not responding to communities impacted by disaster, our fully funded mobile eye care clinics travel to community and doctor-led outreach events across the U.S.
Patients in need receive comprehensive eye exams from a local VSP network doctor and, if needed, glasses—often the same day.
