Can I call or email the clinic for an appointment?

No. The LOVC is a referral only clinic.

How do I receive a referral?

You must contact one of our partnering agencies and the agency will give you an application. They will determine if you qualify for our services.

What happens if I qualify?

If you qualify the partnering agency will fax us your application. We will contact you to schedule for the next available appointment.

Due to the high number of applicants, please expect at least a 1-2 month waiting period for an exam.

What if I already have a current prescription, and only need glasses?

If you already have a current prescription, you still must qualify with an application to order your glasses through our program.


Our basic fee for glasses:

  • Single vision - $30
  • Bifocals - $45

We don't accept personal checks, but do accept credit cards. 

If agency is paying: payment according to agreement between clinic and said agency.

  • We do not accept any insurance.
  • Basic fee includes the exam and frames
