The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington offers free vision exams to determine the need for glasses and to screen for conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts.
To qualify for our vision services, patients must be low-income and uninsured or carry insurance that does not cover vision care.
Vision exams are available by appointment only.
If you would like a vision appointment, please come to the Free Clinic between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The clinic is located at 4100 Plomondon Street, Vancouver WA 98661. You will complete a vision application. We will contact you when an appointment is available.
You might have to wait three to four months for a basic eye exam. The wait for a medical eye exam such as diabetic, cataract or glaucoma could take up to one month.
Should a vision provider determine that a patient needs prescription glasses, we will refer the patient to a partner program to receive free glasses. We encourage patients who only need glasses for reading to buy reading glasses from the Dollar Store or a similar low-cost shop.
If a vision provider suspects a patient has an eye disease such as cataracts or severe retinopathy, we will try to refer the patient to free specialty care.
Immunizations for Children and Adults
Due to refrigeration issues, the Free Clinic is not offering any immunizations, including the measles vaccine, for the foreseeable future. We also do not offer the Titer Test, which is a laboratory blood test. It checks for the presence of certain antibodies in the blood stream.
