How to Help Others
Patients in your community may be contacting you with a VSP Global® Eyes of Hope® disaster relief gift certificate received through the American Red Cross.

When you see a patient with a VSP Global Eyes of Hope gift certificate, you will be reimbursed by VSP® Vision Care. Simply follow the "Doctor Instructions" listed on the back of the gift certificate before processing the claim.

Who’s eligible?
When American Red Cross is listed as the client name on the front of the gift certificate, patients must have*:

  • a U.S. Social Security number;
  • lost or damaged eyewear during a disaster;
  • no vision insurance or no available benefits through existing vision insurance;
  • not used another gift certificate in the last 12 months.

What’s covered?

  • Adults are eligible for an eye exam, an Altair® frame** with a retail value up to $115, and single-vision, lined bifocal, or lined trifocal lenses.
  • Children are eligible for an eye exam, an Altair or Otis & Piper™ frame with a retail value up to $115, and single-vision, lined bifocal, or lined trifocal lenses; polycarbonate lenses are also covered.
