New Eyes for the Needy purchases prescription eyeglasses for indigent
Americans through a well-established voucher program. Eligible
clients can receive a voucher through a social service agency or a
school nurse, or directly from our office. Clients can present a New
Eyes voucher to any participating local optical dispenser, who fits
the client with the proper prescription eyeglasses. The dispenser
then receives reimbursement directly from New Eyes.

Who Is Eligible?
New Eyes for the Needy purchases new prescription eyeglasses for low-
income individuals in the US through a voucher program. To be
eligible for our program, applicants must:
Be in financial need.
