AOA + Lyft: Rideshare for Eye Care

Over half of Americans struggle to get to their medical appointments, which can affect the  timeliness and quality of their medical care and overall health. As eyecare professionals, our goal is to simplify your access to comprehensive eye care so you can get the help you need, whenever you need it.  

Throughout the month of March, the American Optometric Association is partnering with rideshare provider Lyft to offer free* rides to/from eye exam appointments in Miami and Chicago. Redeeming your free Lyft ride is easy:

  1. Schedule your annual comprehensive eye exam
  2. Download the Lyft app
  3. Search your city’s promo code below and enter it in the ‘Promos’ tab 

Request your free ride and enjoy!
