In May of 2015, The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation opened it's second adult vision clinic within the St. Vincent de Paul Center in the West End of Cincinnati. The clinic provides dilated eye exams to low income adults with no eye insurance, a necessary service to low income adult residents in this community. Many have never seen an eye doctor. If patients need glasses, they receive a prescription and a voucher for free glasses through our partner, OneSight Foundation at a local LensCrafters. This location is open every Thursday and by the end of 2015, 382 clinic patients had been examined by our volunteer ophthalmologists. The clinic is staffed by volunteer ophthalmologists and optometrists who donate their time. The Foundation continues to recruit volunteer physicians for its clinics.

It is located at the Liz Carter Outreach Center, 1125 Bank Street, Cincinnati, OH 45214. Appointments are available by contacting The Foundation at 513-878-2300 or toll-free at 866-466-2343.
