VA Health Care Prosthetic and Sensory Aids

Veterans receiving VA care for any condition may receive VA pros¬thetic appliances, equipment and services, such as home respiratory therapy, artificial limbs, orthopedic braces and therapeutic shoes, wheelchairs, powered mobility, crutches, canes, walkers and other durable medical equipment and supplies. 

VA will provide hearing aids and eyeglasses to veterans who receive increased pension based on the need for regular aid and attendance or being permanently housebound, receive compensation for a ser¬vice-connected disability or are former POWs. Otherwise, hearing aids and eyeglasses are provided only in special circum¬stances, and not for normally occurring hearing or vision loss. For additional information, contact the prosthetic representative at the nearest VA health care facility.
