Gift of Sight

For over 80 years, Dr. Tavel Family Eyecare has focused on providing affordable and accessible eyewear and care to all Hoosiers. While Dr. Tavel accepts all insurance, guaranteed, and offers free imaging as part of our comprehensive eye exams, we recognize that for some, cost remains a barrier to care. That’s why we’ve launched Gift of Sight – our program that removes cost as a barrier to corrected, healthy vision.

We commit to give away 2400 free pairs of glasses and 1300 free eye exams to Hoosiers in need through June 2025.

Redeem a Certificate

Using certificates from the Gift of Sight program, Hoosiers can receive 1 free service, and 1 free product. Services include a free comprehensive eye exam, or a free medical exam, or free special testing. Products include a free life-enhancing upgrade to your eyewear, or a free pair of glasses. A person may redeem one eyewear product certificate, and one eyecare service certificate, per 12-month period. If a person has vision insurance, available vision insurance benefits must be fully utilized before the certificate can be redeemed. See certificate or store associate for additional redemption details.
