About The Kansas City Free Eye

The Kansas City Free Eye is a Homeless Health Center.In order to get more information on this clinic, click on the icons below. You may be required to join for free in order to access full contact information.

The Clinic is unique in many aspects in that it offers the full gamut of vision services going beyond a standard vision screening and therefore offers more value to an individual. Our ties with Truman Medical Center and the Eye Foundation allow uninsured and homeless patients to have, for example, FREE  cataract removal surgeries among other follow up procedures.

A clinic service runs every second Sunday of the month except for holiday weekends from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm and typically sees between 20-25 patients on two lanes.

Many homeless and sheltered patients don't have reliable living circumstances that can change frequently so it's imperative that their eyeglasses are made quickly. Glasses are made right in Kansas City offering the quickest turnaround time for patients. This service is provided at no charge by Sabates Eye Centers and their opticians that provide volunteer service by producing the lenses over the weekend. Most patients need glasses; therefore between 250 - 300 pairs of glasses are dispensed in a year.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the The Kansas City Free Eye website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022

Persons In Family HouseholdPoverty Guideline Salary per year

For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
