"Blindness and vision impairment have enormous personal, social and economic costs, limiting the activities of otherwise healthy and active people," said William Tasman, MD, Chair of EyeCare America's AMD EyeCare Program. "EyeCare America bridges the gap between the senior community and the quality eye care they need. By increasing awareness of eye diseases such as AMD and its risk factors, and connecting more people with exams and care, EyeCare America works to reduce preventable blindness in the U.S. thereby enabling older Americans to see clearly into the future, and and maintain maximum independence."

EyeCare America's AMD EyeCare Program is a year-round program that promotes annual eye exams for people 65 and older, raises awareness of AMD, provides the latest information about treatment options and low vision services, offers free AMD educational materials, and facilitates access to care at no out-of-pocket cost for those who qualify. The eye exams are provided by more than 7,000 dedicated volunteer ophthalmologists across the U.S. People may call the toll-free helpline at 1-866-324-EYES (3937), anytime, for themselves, family members and/or friends to see if they qualify to be referred to one of our volunteer ophthalmologists, or to request free AMD educational material.

Callers who have not seen an ophthalmologist in three or more years may be eligible to receive a comprehensive medical eye exam and, in most cases, up to one year of care at no out-of-pocket cost for any disease diagnosed during the initial exam.

The AMD EyeCare Program is designed for people at increased risk for AMD, but who have NOT been diagnosed and who:

  • Are age 65 and older
  • Are US citizens or legal residents
  • Have not se
