Hi guys I know i can trun to you all when I can't find something so plz help if you know any infromation. there is a lady here that needs help finding her son glasses her son has medicaid but it will take medicaid up to four to eight weeks to get the glasses he needs in if she pays for them it will be 150.00 that she doesnt have she doesnt work and her son needs these glasses Now the doctor said her son should have had glasses two to three years ago her son eyes are really bad:( She has been taking her son to the eye doctor and telling the doctor he has headaches but they never dialted (sp?) his eyes before well this time they did. This was a diff doctor then she normally takes him to but this one found the problem. I hate to see a child need something and can't get it exp. when it due to there health.
I told her to check out len's crafters and i did some reserch in it and it came out they only help once a year and that is for people that doesnt have inc. and the time they do it is right before school starts.
the doctor told her there was no need for him to call the company because medicaid only contracted one company to do this. if medicaid had contracted more company to do this then this child wouldnt have to wait.:( its so sad.
thanks for your input on this matter.
sending you all hugs and prayers

The bottom of this site suggest calling local hospitals and speaking with a hospital social worker. It says they are knowledgable in community health support organizations.

Your local Lions Club should be able to help. Every Lions Club has a member who is responsible for following up on requests for assistance in getting needed eyeglasses --- I am the coordinator in our club. If you can't locate a Lions Club in your area, please let me know and I will check on it for you.
