The National Eye Institute (NEI) provides a listing of several organizations you can contact for specific issues. For eye exams and surgeries, contact EyeCare America, Vision USA, Lions Club International, and Mission Cataract USA. For prescription drug assistance, NEI recommends contacting NeedyMeds, Partnership for Prescription Assistance, Patient Access Network Foundation and RX Assist.
