Financial Policies and Insurance

Our intent is to provide superior eyecare services at reasonable cost. In order to do this, we require that all fees be paid at the time of service.

Orders placed for eyeglasses, contacts, and optical products require a 50% deposit. These orders must be paid in full before they can be picked up.

For your convenience, we accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover, as well as cash and checks. 

If we are participating providers with your insurance company, we will submit the charges for you. All copays and unmet deductibles are your responsibility, however, and are to be paid when services are rendered.

If your insurance provider is not listed, we will supply you with the necessary documentation to submit for reimbursement. As a courtesy to our patients, we file all insurance claims for surgery charges.

Our business staff is well trained in insurance matters and will be pleased to assist with any questions you might have.
