The goal of the Vision Care Outreach Program is to reduce the incidence of unnecessary vision loss and impairment by providing access to a donated system of comprehensive vision care services for uninsured or underinsured adults and children in Ohio. The Vision Care Outreach program provides this targeted population with eye care services they desperately need, but are not able to access due to a lack of insurance or other vision benefits.
To help Ohioans in need without the means to get an eye exam or glasses, the Ohio Affiliate of Prevent Blindness partners with a statewide network of volunteer eye doctors and optical companies. Each year we help over 5,000 adults and children to access donated eye care services. The retail value of the donated products and services provided by the vision care community to prevent blindness tops $2 million annually. The role of the Ohio Affiliate of Prevent Blindness is to link donated eye care to all Ohioans in need. For more information on the Vision Care Outreach Program by region review our available VCO fact sheets.
