Vision Services for Students 

The Florida Department of Health School Health Services Program manages two state-funded vision programs, Florida's Vision Quest and Florida Heiken Children’s Vision Program. These vision programs help eligible students achieve academic and social success by making it possible for parents to follow-up on school-based vision screenings. Funding provided by the Florida Legislature makes these vision services available to eligible students in grades prekindergarten through twelfth grade that attend Florida public schools. Eligible students who are in need of follow-up evaluation and possible corrective lenses are provided a comprehensive vision exam and eyeglasses at no cost. The total contract allocation for the 2019-2020 school year is $1,750,000.00. County health departments and school districts are encouraged to contact either provider for follow-up exams and eye glasses for students in their school district. The providers and their contact information are listed below.
