Eye Thrive Offers Free Glasses for Children Ages 4-18

We are proud to share with you that we've expanded our programming to make and ship free glasses to the home of ANY child.  As you know, our traditional replacement program offers free replacement glasses only to the children our doctors have prescribed glasses to on-board our Mobile Vision Clinic. This expansion offers the service to ANY child:

  • between the ages of 4 and 18,
  • with a valid, current prescription, and
  • living within their service area of St. Louis and its surrounding communities.

The process for requesting new glasses is easy; parents just need to fill out an order form and Eye Thrive will follow up with you directly to get anything else we need. This form will be provided to community partners for distribution and can also be found on our website: www.eyethrive.org

Once a parent or guardian has completed our request form, they can submit it to us via: 

  • Mail: 229 Millwell Drive, Maryland Heights, Missouri 63043
  • Email: glasses@eyethrive.org
  • Text: 636-789-8740
  • Fax: 314-736-1425

Eye Thrive staff will follow up on each request and as soon as their prescription is verified and the glasses are made, we will ship them directly to the home address provided on the request.
