Sight For School Fund

There are numerous options available across the state for charitable vision care for children. Many eye doctors offer pro bono care for underserved patients. However, for children who do not qualify for any of those programs, or who do not have access to existing charitable care options, the NFCV Sight For School Fund can be an alternative of last resort. 

The Sight For School Fund will reimburse eye doctors at Medicaid-allowable rates for the costs of providing eye exams or eyewear.  School nurses are asked to exhaust any other options for helping to obtain charitable care for students before applying for Sight For School Fund assistance.

Complete the following form, or contact the Nebraska Foundation for Children's Vision for details on the Sight For School Fund.
