What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Kern 20/20

The Kern 20/20 project operated through Advanced Center for Eyecare is a program that is designed to provide eye exams, eye testing, and eye health management by staff optometrists so that uninsured and underinsured residents of Kern County have the access they need to vision care. Volunteer ophthalmologists also provide surgeries such as cataract removal, eyelid lesion removal and pterygium surgery for individuals. This program operates similarly to the sliding scale that is used within FQHC (federally qualified health care) clinics for uninsured individuals, which means ACE is able to provide comprehensive eye exams and eye surgeries to qualifying individuals at little to no cost. Trained administrative staff ensures referrals and follow care for patients is provided.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Advanced Center for Eyecare aims to provide high-quality vision care to all people of Kern County, regardless of their ability to pay.

Advanced Center for Eyecare accepts many insurances that other eye care providers do not, including widely used public no-cost or low-cost programs such as Medi-Cal, Medicare and Kern Family Health Care. ACE also offers grants and a sliding scale program for those without any insurance.

Advanced Center for Eyecare has 5 full-time optometrists on staff, as well as 3 contracted ophthalmologists, allowing us to see over 100 patients per day.

Advanced Center for Eyecare has experienced tremendous growth since its inception in 2010, with a continuously growing influx of new patients which has allowed ACE to expand its offices and add more doctors to its staff.
