Frequently Asked Questions

​

What insurance do you accept?

 

We accept almost all medical and vision insurances. If you have any questions about your insurance, call the number on the back of your insurance card to verify that we are providers for your plan.  You can also call our office and we will answer any questions we can.

 

 

Why do you need my medical insurance?

 

Your medical insurance may cover a routine eye exam.  There are eye conditions that need to be submitted to your medical insurance primarily and to your vision insurance secondarily.

 

 

When should I get my child’s eyes checked?

 

We are part of the InfantSEE program, which offers a free eye exam to anyone under the age of one. At that exam, we are able to get an initial prescription for your child, check for any congenital defects, lazy eye, and many other tests.

 

If you do not get your child in before their first birthday, do not worry! We accept patients of any age, reading level, and attention span. 😊
