Free eye exams and glasses for eligible residents
BATAVIA, Ohio (May 1, 2015) -- The statistics from Prevent Blindness Ohio are sobering: Nearly 200,000 Ohioans are blind or visually impaired; and 16% percent of Ohioans are at risk of losing their sight without early detection and professional treatment.
And the problem will only grow worse: By 2030, more than 2.5 million Ohioans will be affected by conditions that will impair their vision.
Clermont County Public Health (CCPH) works closely with PBO, a public health organization dedicated to preventing blindness, to assist Clermont County residents in getting a free eye exam and/or glasses. If you do not have a vision program through your insurance plan contact CCPH to see if you qualify for a free eye exam and glasses at 513-735-8400. Some insurance plans will cover the eye exam but not the glasses. Check with your insurance provider to see what coverage you might have before contacting CCPH. Once approved for the program, a voucher is given to the participant to take to a local provider who donates their time and expertise to help with getting an exam and glasses.
