Vision and Hearing Assistance


If you have vision correction needs that aren’t covered by your insurance or Medicaid or Medicare, please download our Vision Assistance Request Form. Fill it out and give to any Fairbury Lions Club member. If you don’t know any Fairbury Lions Club members, please call 815-419-5087 to make arrangements.


In Illinois, health coverage insurers and Medicaid are required to offer coverage for hearing aids for children under the age of 18 years and for adults aged 65+.

For adults 65+, insurance is required to offer hearing aid coverage as an option; please check with your coverage.

Unfortunately our current support here in the Fairbury Lions Club for hearing needs is very limited. Below are some resources as a suggested starting point for finding financial assistance. If you have exhausted your resources and still need help, contact us by emailing a message to and we will evaluate support requests on a case by case basis to see if we are able to help.
