 Diet To Improve Eyesight - Which Are The Top Foods That Improve Eyesight?

I need glasses but have no money to pay?
I had progressive lenses, mypuppy chewed them up. Contacts are actually cheaper but I am awaiting disability and have no job, no income and I have no glasses or contacts. I know the prescription I need for contacts but I cannot afford them NOR the eye exam. Someone told me St. Vincent DePaul has some kind of eye exam and glasses program. I have to wear two pair of dollar store glasses to see up close, one pair to see far and still, I don't see that well. I have no money for an exam OR glasses. I could use some help for sure

tooo bad

find a rich husband/boyfriend.....

That's how it is for a lot of people. Just do without until you get some money. And when you get new ones - don't let the puppy chew them.

Get a monocle, they're half the cost.

You're just going to have to wait. I'm wearing my old glasses because the new ones I had my dog chewed them. So I'm basicly screwed and have to wait till I can get money again and get the new rx ones again.

Saint Bn Laden is Innocent
No money! No Glasses!
it's bad begging in Y!A.
don't fall to a cheat.

I got 2 pair of readers @ Dollar store,1 pair @ Walgreens. They work just fine.

Ask you parents, family, or friends for help. Be sure to pay them back in full though.
Find a job. even two if one is not enough.

check http://www.neweyesfortheneedy.org/us/freeexams.html on the web for a start. Then in your area get on the phone and call eye docs and ER's You may get blown off a few places but there are going to be some people who will give you local information also. I know of a program here in Arkansas but you need one locally. Never hurts to just ask. There are a huge amount of resources that go unused because people just don't ask for them.

Yes, St. Vincent De Paul does have eye glasses programs. So do the Lion's Club.
Since I don't know where you live, I can't find you specific resources, but I can point you in the right direction. To find where you can get free eye exam and eye glasses, go to www.211.org to find an information and referral service in your area. The service will find what places will be able to help you in your city. You can call 211 from your home phone or go to that website to find your local call center's direct number (if you're calling from a cell phone). Most 211's are 24 hours, all are free and confidential and will be able to find you some resources that may be able to get you some glasses. I don't know about contacts, but maybe you could ask.

You can also try the Lion Club they have a glasses program.

see if your area has a free clinic or set up a payment plan with your store

Call the Lions Club in your area and ask about their Vision program.

Go to this link. Down the left side of the page, choose LOCATOR for local contact info.
