Free and Low Cost Vision Healthcare Providers in Orange County

Vision Center is funded by our readers. We may earn commissions if you purchase something via one of our links.

Community health centers, university clinics, or nonprofit foundations often provide free or low-cost vision care services. Their clinics can offer services at a low cost by using a sliding scale model.

A sliding scale model allows clinics to price eye care services depending on how much a person earns. This ensures quality services are more accessible to underserved communities or people in need at a fair price.

Nonprofit organizations or government agencies also run eye care programs, which are available nationwide. This is to provide people with free or low-cost eye care services.

Volunteer doctors and their colleagues often run these national programs. Doctors sign themselves up to be providers for these programs. Then, they provide free services in their local communities. School clinics can also be part of these national programs.
