65 and up... free eye care!
Posted 05 February 2007 - 08:04 PM
The AMD EyeCare Program promotes annual eye exams for people 65 and older. It raises awareness of AMD, provides the latest information about treatment options and low vision resources, offers free AMD educational materials and facilitates access to care at no out-of-pocket cost for those who qualify.
The free eye exams provided through the AMD EyeCare Program are for individuals who have not been diagnosed with AMD and are:
· Are age 65 and older
· Are U.S. citizens or legal residents
· Have not seen an ophthalmologist in three or more years
· Do not belong to an HMO or the VA
People may call the toll-free helpline at 1-866-324-EYES (3937), anytime, for themselves and/or family members or friends to see if they qualify for a free eye exam or to request free AMD educational material.

Just thought this might be a help to some of us!!
Where words and actions disagree, the heart is revealed.
Look how often the unexpected happens... and we still don't expect it.
