Mobile Eye Care Clinics

VSP Mobile Eyes features deluxe eye care clinics on wheels, staffed by VSP network doctors who are volunteering their expertise, and outfitted with state-of-the-art exam rooms, dispensaries, and optical finishing labs. When not helping in times of disaster, our fully funded mobile eye care clinics travel to community events across the U.S.

OUR IMPACT
 
OUR IMPACT
 

VSP Mobile Eyes developed from the relief response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. VSP was on the scene to help doctors, whose practices had been destroyed, to quickly return to providing eye care, and to offer no-cost replacement eyewear for community members.

Today, together with VSP network doctors and partnering organizations, three VSP Mobile Eyes clinics are ready to transform sight wherever it’s needed most. Patients in need are able to receive comprehensive eye exams and, if needed, glasses—often the same day.

If you've received an eye exam or new glasses on board a VSP Mobile Eyes clinic, we'd like to hear how it has made a difference in your life.

Testimonials

All the volunteers were wonderful. This service was a blessing at just the right time. My son needs to wear glasses all the time. His glasses were recently broken and I didn’t know how I was going to replace them. Now he won’t have to struggle to see in class and he will be able to see. I’m grateful for all the help I received today.

My experience with VSP has been a blessing. I would like to thank both Tyreke Evans and VSP for this opportunity to receive glasses over the years. I have not been able to afford glasses, nor do I have vision insurance. Since I retired in 2004, I could only afford the Dollar Store reading glasses. Thank you.

I would like to thank everyone. I haven’t been able to see good in years. When I was at one of the stations and about ready to cry from being so excited about new glasses I wasn’t able to afford myself – thanks to you I will be! Thank you for answering my prayers. Thank You and God Bless!

I had a beautiful experience with VSP. I enjoyed the wonderful hospitality I was given. I found out that I had a problem I didn’t even know existed. But overall the service was great!
