Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, November, 2019
I have suffered from an astigmatism and myopia since I was a kid. I would always wear glasses until I became older and couldn’t afford to buy new ones. I would abstain from driving at night and would miss family gatherings because of it. When I heard about this program I felt at ease, I could finally have a pair of glasses to see clearly. Now I can drive at any time, see my daughters and grandkids play and help them with their homework. Thank you all so much!

I called 211 to find out about any organization that helped with the purchase of eyeglasses. I was referred to Prevent Blindness, within a week I had received my application and sent it in. I was approved within 2 weeks and sent my voucher. I was able to get new glasses and had a great experience!

“I appreciate your organization. Prevent Blindness Texas helped me out a couple of times with this program. My vision has been changing about every two years. I am diabetic with high blood pressure, and I have to have eye exams annually. I am having problems focusing on distant objects which causes me to squint and be sensitive to light. I am so glad there is an organization that ensures everyone has affordable, accessible, quality eye care that is free/low cost.”

“Thank you for making it possible to receive free glasses. I am now able to see the writing on the TV much clearer. It is the caring of people like yourselves at Prevent Blindness Texas that are a blessing to those who may not be able to afford glasses. The correct glasses surely have made a difference in my life. I am diabetic and now I can see clearly the beautiful handiwork of God.”

“I’m so grateful for your help with my glasses. I’m able to see better and I want to take a foreign language, but was unable to read the material, but with my new glasses I feel more confident to pursue a new language. Thank you so very much! You’re a Godsend!”
