Vision Services

To meet the vision needs of our patient population, a partnership between Gennesaret Free Clinics and the IU School of Optometry was established in 1994. Optometry students under the supervision of a licensed optometrist provide comprehensive eye exams to our patients. While our patients receive invaluable care, the optometry student also benefits from the opportunity to observe and treat ocular disease and trauma that they might not otherwise encounter in the general population.  People referred to this program receive a free eye exam and glasses.  The vision care program is supported by the donors of Gennesaret Free Clinics.

In fiscal year 2016 Gennesaret Free Clinics provided 47 eye exams and glasses to our patient population.
