BESB: EyeCare America's Seniors EyeCare Program and Lions Eye Health Program

EyeCare America's Seniors EyeCare Program and Lions Eye Health Program


We invite you to share EyeCare America's Seniors EyeCare Program helpline with your community. It is 1-800-222-EYES(3937). Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is still not well known, yet approximately 1.65 million older Americans have this disease that can cause vision loss. Callers who are 65 and older may qualify for a comprehensive eye exam and care for up to one year at no out-of-pocket cost. This year-round program helpline operates 24 hours, every day.

If you have questions or would like to receive Lions/ECA posters, please visit www.lehp.org or www.eyecareamerica.org. If you would like to tailor template letters-to-editors, please call EyeCare America staff toll-free at 877-887-6327, 8-4 (PT).

The Lions Eye Health Program (LEHP) is funded by a SightFirst Grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation and by educational grants from Eli Lilly and Allergan, Inc. EyeCare America is the public service foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
