VSP Mobile Eyes Program

Driven to Make a Visible Difference

Partnering with VSP network doctors in the United States, the VSP Mobile Eyes® program evolved from our relief efforts following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. We were on the scene to replace lost or damaged eyewear to affected individuals, as well as equip doctors to continue providing care.

VSP Mobile Eyes features deluxe clinics on wheels, outfitted with state-of-the-art exam rooms and dispensaries. Our mobile clinics are ready to transform sight at every site we visit.

Following the effects of Superstorm Sandy in November 2012, more than 6,000 residents throughout New York and New Jersey affected by the storm received a free eye exam, and if needed, glasses through relief efforts committed by VSP. See the impact here.

When not at disaster sites, our fully funded mobile eyecare clinics travel to community events across the U.S. So far, we’ve provided quality eye exams and glasses to tens of thousands of underserved people.

Services

Working in partnership with VSP optometrists who volunteer their time and services, patients seen on a VSP mobile clinic receive a comprehensive eye exam and, if needed, glasses. Glasses include single vision, bifocal, or trifocal lenses and a new frame, which patients select from the dispensary on-board the clinic. There are finishing labs on-board two clinics, allowing patients to receive their new glasses on the same day as their eye exam. Marchon® Eyewear donates frames provided to patients on-board the clinics.

If you're a VSP doctor and would like to volunteer, let us know.

You may also request a mobile clinic for your event.
