Florida Heiken Children’s Vision Program provides free comprehensive eye exams and prescription eyeglasses to students who qualify to participate.
The goal of the Florida Heiken Children’s Vision Program is to assure that all financially disadvantaged schoolchildren who fail their vision screening have access to a comprehensive eye examination including dilation and glasses, if required, to ensure academic success.
Following the Florida Statute which sets standards of care, the Program provides an eye examination with dilation so that underlying medical conditions can be diagnosed and appropriate medical referrals made. Glasses are prescribed if required. These free services are offered statewide either on-site at schools via four mobile eye clinics or by our network of nearly 2,000 participating optometrists.
Q: What is the Florida Heiken Children’s Vision Program?
A: The Heiken Children’s Vision Fund was created in 1992 by the Dade County Optometric Association, and to date it has provided free comprehensive eye examinations and eyeglasses to more than 85,000 financially disadvantaged schoolchildren who had no other source for vision care.
The Florida Heiken Children’s Vision Program, a division of The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, provides financially underprivileged students who qualify, with comprehensive eye examinations and prescription glasses if needed, in contracted counties in Florida, at no cost to the parent, student or school.
Students who meet the eligibility criteria under one of our two programs will receive a free eye exam and glasses, if prescribed. The first is a voucher (In-Office Program), where we will refer the student to a local participating eye doctor. We also offer a second, Mobile eye-care at your school if a minimum number of students is available.
