Eyewear, Vision Exams and Hearing Care
With AARP® Vision Discounts provided by EyeMed, members and their families pay only $55 for eye exams and save 30 percent on a complete pair of eyeglasses (frames & lenses) at participating retailers nationwide, including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical and Target Optical locations, as well as over 45,000 private vision practitioners.
