Seniors Eyecare Program

The Seniors Eyecare Program ensures that every senior has access to medical eye care and promotes annual, dilated eye exams.  It raises awareness about age-related eye disease, including cataracts, provides free eye care educational materials and facilitates access to eye care.

The Seniors EyeCare Program is designed for people who:
