Eyeglasses and vision care can be very expensive. Thankfully veterans who meet specific VA criteria have access to vision and hearing exams in addition to free eyeglasses and hearing aids. This benefit can save hundreds.
Veterans with any compensable service-connected disability, former POWs, Purple heart recipients, and certain housebound veterans are among those who qualify.
[I was recently reminded that the fashion options for VA glasses leave a lot to be desired. But, what do you want for free :-)]
