Apply for an eyeglass voucher
New Eyes provides a basic pair of single or lined bifocal lenses. Special requests including upgrades such as tinted, progressive or Transition lenses are beyond the scope of New Eyes' program. A New Eyes voucher is for individuals who have no other resources with which to obtain a basic pair eyeglasses. Applicants must have an eye exam including their pupillary distance (PD) measurement before applying.
Full instructions on how to register and apply can be found here.
New Eyes vouchers are only valid for use through New Eyes' online eyeglasses dispenser at neweyesglasses.org. Before ordering, voucher recipients must have their pupillary distance measurement. If it is not included on the eyeglasses prescription (preferable) you may measure it yourself. Instructions can be found here.
Only social service agencies/health advocates can apply on an individual’s behalf. If approved, the agency rep will receive a voucher number via email on the individual’s behalf. Please wait 24 hours from the date of the email before utilizing the voucher number to ensure it has been activated on our eyeglass ordering site. Glasses cannot be ordered before receiving the voucher. The social service agency/health advocate MUST order glasses on behalf of their client.
Vouchers are good for three months from the date of issue. If the voucher is not used before the expiration date, you may not apply for another voucher for 12 months.
