Vision Services

RAHS Vision Services

The RAHS-Ypsilanti Community High school-based health center provides eye exams for youth and adolescents in Washtenaw County. An optometrist from the Kellogg Eye Center, Dr. Dewey, sees patients on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month during the school day. Our health centers arrange to transport students to the RAHS-YCHS location to access these services.

RAHS partners with the Kellogg Eye Center to provide vision services in Genesee County as well. Patients are seen on the RAHS Mobile Unit on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. Patients first have their vision screened by a health center clinician, then are scheduled for a full eye exam if needed.

Services are available to youth 21 years old and younger from the community-at-large. As with all RAHS services, we accept both insured and uninsured patients with no out-of-pocket charges. RAHS vision services are intended for patients without insurance, or those who are not yet eligible for a new eye exam or glasses with their insurance.

Eye exams include dilation. Those patients who need glasses, or need a replacement pair, are provided glasses at no out-of-pocket cost. Patients typically receive their glasses 2 weeks after their eye exam.
