To provide our Veterans with high quality lenses and frame options. We want to ensure our Veterans who want a high quality set of prescription eyeglasses have this resource available. There is no monthly fee and no hoops to jump through. What’s the difference between what Veterans will receive? First and foremost, our Veterans will be properly fitted by a Registered Spectacle Lens Dispenser and ABO Certified Optician who specializes in complex optical fitments. Secondly, we deeply care about giving back to our troops by providing them with the best optics, not the cheapest, to see clearly.
To provide mobile support and financial support for high quality vision services and eyewear to our Veterans. Our passion derives from our experience with working with our Veterans at the Veterans Affairs Hospital and within Optometric Practices. Our Veterans travel far to receive their care, and we want to provide options to our Veterans, especially to those who are immobile, suffer from disabilities, and in need of alternative options.
Often times, after getting an eye examinations through Optometry/Ophthalmology, patients transition over to the Vendor’s Optical side to get prescriptions filled with a basic set of eyeglasses. Unfortunately, once you make it over to choose your frames and get fitted for your prescription eyeglasses, your eyes are dilated and you're not able to see to choose your frames. It was difficult for many veterans to make this very important decision, so many ended up choosing something they would never wear. Well say goodbye to those days!
We believe in providing the right type of care to ensure our veterans are well taken care of. We want you to be able to see comfortably as soon as possible, because you deserve the absolute best when it comes to your vision needs.
- Military or Veteran Card
- State ID or Driver's License
