Prevent Blindness Georgia administers various second party vision care assistance programs. Those organizations have set eligibility requirements which must be strictly adhered to in order to ensure that individuals are truly in need of the benefits from the programs.
Please note that vouchers are not always available in every county. Prevent Blindness Georgia may offer vision exams and access to glasses at our community-based vision clinics for certain counties.
Please note that due to the charitable nature of this program, we assist those that do not have access to vision care at all. If you have a co-pay or a spend down that is required with your vision coverage, you may be ineligible for this program.
If you do not have vision care coverage, please complete this application so that we may determine which of the programs you (or your child) may be qualified for. Please read this application in its entirety. Please attach copies of all requested documents so as not to delay processing. Originals cannot be returned.
You will be notified of your eligibility via email or telephone within 4 weeks of receipt of your application.
