In order to qualify for a free eye exam, you must live in Oklahoma County.
A free eye exam can be provided every 2 years.
If you have diabetes and insurance, you will be advised to call your personal care doctor for a diabetic eye exam referral. Your exam will be covered by "health" rather than "vision" insurance.
To Make an Appointment
Volunteers schedule exams over the phone Monday - Thursday from 9:00 am - 12 pm.
- When you call, wait for the automated menu to tell you which number to press to connect to the Eye Clinic. Otherwise, your call will go to the front desk.
- If someone does not answer on your first try, wait a little while and call again. Appointments cannot be made from voicemails.
- Unless someone is hearing impaired or cannot speak English, the person who will be attending the appointment is required to call.
- Make sure you have time set aside for a small set of questions which the volunteer will ask you, such as where you live, if you have insurance, how you will get to the appointment, etc. The volunteer will use this information to schedule the best possible exam for you.
It is extremely important to remember the date, time and location of the exam so please take note of these details. Someone will often notify you before the appointment with a reminder call.
If, for any reason, you will have to miss your appointment, you must give at least a 24-hour notice, otherwise it will be two years before Skyline will be able to make you another.
Have a Prescription?
Wednesday mornings from 8:30 am - 10 am, Skyline opticians take orders for new glasses. They can also attempt to repair glasses.
Whether your prescription is from an appointment Skyline made or another clinic, you can use it at Skyline as long as it is not more than two years old.
At this time you will be able to pick out frames and pay for the glasses, which usually take a week to make. Staff and volunteers will be able to answer any of your questions regarding prescriptions, payment, etc.
New glasses are offered at a reduced cost at $35 for Single Vision and $55 for bifocals.
