Free Eye Exams to 3rd Graders Who Did Not Pass Reading Assessment
The Mississippi Optometric Association and the Mississippi Vision Foundation have announced an initiative to provide free eye exams to Mississippi 3rd grade students who did not pass the reading test and do not have insurance coverage. For students who are covered through private insurance or CHIPS, doctors will file on that coverage and parents will be asked to cover the co-pay for the visit due to laws which require the doctor to collect this amount. Parents who are unable to pay the out-of-pocket expenses should discuss this with the doctor. Additionally, any student whose eye test reveals the need for corrective lenses will be provided glasses.
To take advantage of the free vision test, parents should:
Call their local participating optometrist to schedule an appointment;
Tell the receptionist they are scheduling the free 3rd grade eye exam;
Bring the letter notifying them that their child did not pass the assessment test with them to the appointment;
