Uncorrected Refractive Error (URE) accounts for vision loss in millions of Americans. Eyeglasses are the simplest and safest way to correct refractive errors. Prescription eyewear coverage is not universally covered across most health insurance policies. This project details Medicare and Vermont Medicaid coverage for Prescription Glasses. Also included is information outlining where to buy affordable frames and organizations in Vermont that can help acquire prescriptions not covered by insurance.
