Veterans Optometry Partners of America welcomes *ALL* members of the community! VOPA is now performing annual eye exams and providing eyeglasses in residence at Mt. Carmel. Led by Keegan Meyer and his team, formerly of Abba Eyecare, the effort helps veterans access their covered, annual free VA eye exam and a free pair of glasses.
“This service is open to veterans of any era and includes a comprehensive exam and digital lenses by a licensed optometrist,” said Keegan. “Many veterans are unaware of their annual optical care benefit. This partnership encourages veterans to access that and I’m excited to provide the exam and glasses at Mt. Carmel.”
Veterans Optometry Partners of America at Mt. Carmel welcomes military, veterans and families – and all other community members – to access their insured benefits. “We welcome all forms of Tricare, Medicaid, Medicare, and most other insurance plans,” said Keegan. “For the uninsured we offer affordable packages as well.”
