How to Get Help
Parents and guardians interested in seeking assistance through the Sight for Students program must work through VSP's established network of community partners. VSP does not issue gift certificates directly to the public.

Please review the qualification guidelines, and then use the Web site to find a partner in your area.

Our partners are only obligated to provide gift certificates to children who are normally part of their programs. However, they are allowed to help children outside of their programs at their discretion.

Although the network of Sight for Student partners is extensive, VSP cannot guarantee that children will have access to the program in every area of the country.
