Steps To Obtaining Assistance on Vision Surgery.

​Requests begin at your local Lions Club
Whichever application is given to you, please fill as completely as possible.  Any spaces not filled out may cause delay in assistance.  The Lions are here to help you fill out the application.
Then What?
     A Lion Club member will meet with you and learn more about your situation so that it can be determined the best way to proceed.  Sometimes they will refer you to WVU Charity Care or give you an application to fill out.  If possible, please have a recommendation from your optometrist or ophthalmologist..

After the application... what's happens next?
     The application is then reviewed by the local Lions Club Sight Committee and they will verify your qualification for assistance.  The application is then forwarded to the District Service Coordinator for final approval and they will contact the facility providing the service.  After that,  the provider will schedule your appointment and any follow-up with you.

In order to receive assistance from WVLSCF, your total income form all sources may not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines in effect at the time of the application for  assistance.
