Community Outreach & Charity Initiatives

At Agape Learning & Optometry Center, we believe strongly in giving back to the community and caring for the eyes of all those in need. Outreach programs represent an opportunity to show the community the level of commitment our optometrists have to their community. The staff also plays an important role in community outreach.

We also offer affordable no interest financing programs. There are different programs to choose from, both with an easy access application process. Choose from one of the links below to begin your application process or ask about them in our office.
