Free Eye Exam
Clermont County Public Health (CCPH) works closely with PBO to assist Clermont County residents in getting a free eye exam and/or glasses. If you do not have a vision program through your insurance plan contact CCPH to see if you qualify for a free eye exam and glasses at 513-735-8400. Some insurance plans will cover the eye exam but not the glasses. Check with your insurance provider to see what coverage you might have before contacting CCPH. Anyone without vision insurance, that has a household income that is 200% of the current federal poverty guidelines or lower, qualifies for PBO services. Once approved for the program, a voucher is given to the participant to take to a local provider who donates their time and expertise to help with getting an exam and glasses.
“Through this program, I am now able to take my driver’s license exam for the first time in years,” stated a recent PBO participant. Safe driving requires complex visual process – abilities that may begin to decline as you age. A loss of your visual abilities could endanger you and others on the road. This is the type of impact the PBO can have on a community.
If you have any questions or need assistance with improving your eyesight, please contact Clermont County Public Health to see if you qualify for an eye exam and glasses.
