Eye Doctor Insurance – Love Your Eyewear But Don’t Love Your Bill?

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because our eye doctors provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs.

COVID-19 Update

We want to update you on our plan of action related to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Based on the recommendation from the CDC, we are suspending all routine eye care until they advise otherwise. However, we will be available for urgent and emergent care as needed (ie, eye infections, injuries or sudden onset vision loss or change).

All patients with scheduled visits will be contacted by our staff to reschedule. In order to help the schedule management run smoothly, we ask that you wait to be contacted by our team for rescheduling. We don’t know how long this suspension will last, as the current state of COVID-19 is evolving daily.

For those affected by this schedule suspension, if you are without glasses or contacts, we will work with you individually to keep you supplied with prescriptions. If you need pharmacy prescriptions refilled, please let us know as well.

**Further, for our contact lens patients, we recommend you consider discontinuing contact lens wear if you exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, as the eye surface and tears can be a source of exposure and spread to others.**

In addition, we will be available for glasses and contact lens pick up by appointment. Please call the office when you arrive, and a staff member will deliver your purchase directly to your vehicle. On a limited basis, we will provide glasses repairs and adjustments.

We ask that all patients who exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, or have had a fever in the last two weeks to refrain from visiting the office until you are symptom-free for two weeks. If you have traveled internationally or to CA, WA or NY in the last 30 days again we ask that you refrain from visiting the office for two weeks.

If an in-person visit proves necessary, we ask that only the patient come into the office unless personal assistance is required. All guests will be asked to remain in your vehicle. One parent or guardian may accompany a minor patient.

In the midst of this uncertainty, we ask for your understanding of these limitations as the health and well being of our team, patients and community is of the utmost importance.

Be well and stay healthy.
