In the field of eye care, one of our major goals is Better Vision for All.
This is one of the reasons Dr. Matossian volunteers her time with EyeCare America, a public service program of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) that helps people preserve their sight by granting them access to the medical eye care they need.
Dr. Matossian is one of more than 5,500 volunteer ophthalmologists who has helped nearly 2 million people since the program’s inception in 1985. Thanks to the selfless dedication of Dr. Matossian and other eye doctors across the country, more than 90 percent of the eye care provided by EyeCare America carries no out-of-pocket expense for the patient.
EyeCare America offers two programs: A Senior Program for eligible patients age 65 and older, and a Glaucoma Program for those who eligible and uninsured.
