Optometric Association Offers Free Lyft Rides to Eye Exams

The organization is sponsoring rides in 10 U.S. cities

March is Save Your Vision month, according to the American Optometric Association (AOA). And to promote better vision care, AOA is teaming with the ride-hailing service Lyft to get more people to their nearest optometrist for an eye exam.

Under the partnership, a free round-trip ride, up to a $25 fare, will be offered in 10 cities: Charleston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Memphis, Miami, New York City, St. Louis, and Seattle. Residents can take advantage of the offer by accessing a local code on the AOA website. (The association says the offer is good “while supplies last.”)

In AOA’s annual Eye-Q survey, more than a quarter of respondents said they have some difficulty getting to and from their eye exams. After all, it’s hard to drive with your pupils dilated.
