How To Get Eye Care

If your child is covered by Medical Assistance or CHIP, the exam and glasses are free!  To find an eye doctor near you, call the 1-800 number on the back of your child’s insurance card and ask for a vision provider or click on the links below.

Almost every child is eligible for Medical Assistance or CHIP. Children who are citizens or have a current US immigration document are eligible. Your child does not need a social security number to apply.
