Eye Care Assistance Program

The Eye Care Assistance Program pays up to $300 per client. Because there are many optional tests, frame types, and prescriptions, NECALG has chosen to try to address this need by setting the payment level in the area of 80% of a basic exam and low cost glasses. The client would pay the difference, based on options they personally choose.

The program is designed as a one time only service to the client, unless there is a medical necessity such as Glaucoma or Cataracts that warrants monitoring or frequent examination by eye care professionals.

A CSBG client notes, I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate your help with getting me new glasses and the eye exam. I have not been able to get new glasses for at least 10 years now and I have been having trouble seeing to read as well as distances. I would not have been able to get new glasses without your help. Thank you so much. This eye care program is wonderful.

Another CSBG client writes, Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate the Programs you offer and the help I received with my eyes and teeth."
