At Advanced Eyecare Professionals, we believe that one’s financial situation should not be the deciding factor in whether one can obtain quality health care. That is why we have put together “Community Eyecare Days” in our offices three locations for the past 2 years (one Saturday a year in each of our locations); to help those that are in financial need receive quality vision care. AEP has had the privilege of helping 483 patients receive free eye exams, provided 285 patients with a free pair of glasses, and also continue to work with many of those patients’ to care for their ongoing medical eye conditions.
YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR THIS EVENT IF YOU FIT INTO ONE OR MORE OF THE BELOW CATEGORIES:
- You have Medicaid
- You meet the state’s poverty level
- You have Medicare
- Ionia/Kent Health Plan or Barry-Eaton Healthy
- You have a Bridge Card
- You are uninsured
- You receive outside assistance for food, health, and shelter
If you, or anyone you know, are in need of an eye exam/glasses, please give us a call to set up an appointment. The Community Eyecare Day is possible through several community organizations and businesses that give donations to help provide the vision aid of glasses to those in need after the donated eye exam that Advanced Eyecare Professionals provides.
(A special THANK YOU to all past and future sponsors!)
These donations allow for the low-cost/no-cost glasses to be given to each Community Eyecare Day patient that needs them. You must show proof of need in order to take advantage of the Community Eyecare Day. Please call one of our offices to check eligibility, set up an appointment, help sponsor the event, or to ask any questions. Please keep in mind that in order to get maximum outreach, we can only see 2 people per family. Appointments are not guaranteed and only a limited number of patients can be seen.
