EyeCare America ophthalmologists volunteer from their offices.
EyeCare America provide medical eye exams and care often at no out-of-pocket-cost to older Americans who are eligible through their online questionnaire at: www.aao.org/eyecareamerica. Anyone can see if they or others are eligible to be matched with one of the 5000+ volunteers throughout the US.
Eye Screenings are often conducted at schools, through non-profit organizations and some health fairs. To find a list of practicing ophthalmologists in specific cities, visit www.aao.org to search online using a button called “Find an EyeMD”. EyeCare America does not send volunteers to screenings. It’s up to each ophthalmologist to decide whether they are available/willing to volunteer for eye screenings.
