Have an optometry-related question? We have the answer! Check out our FAQs below to learn more about our company and services.
Do you take my insurance?
We are able to look up your insurance to find out if we are in your network. We take most major insurances for our eye doctors’ services, but we recommend calling us ahead of time so we can verify for you.
Do you do kids' eye exams?
Yes, we do! Our eye doctors can give children eye exams starting at age five.
Do you have an eye doctor on staff?
We do! We have eye doctors on staff at all three of our locations.
Can I update the prescription in my existing frames?
Yes, you can! We have state-of-the-art equipment that will measure your existing frames so you can keep your glasses until the new lenses arrive. Schedule an appointment with an eye doctor today to get an updated prescription.
How often should I see an eye doctor?
The American Optometric Association recommends annual eye exams with an eye doctor to keep your prescription up-to-date. However, if you experience any sudden vision changes, do not hesitate to call us and schedule an appointment.
How do I know when my glasses or contacts are ready?
You can easily text any one of our three locations for a quick update on your glasses or contacts. You can also call or email us. Once the order is ready, you’ll receive a call or text. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors!
What's the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?
While both are eye doctors, they have different responsibilities. An optometrist will check the overall health of the eye and determine if glasses are needed. If we determine that medical procedures are needed, or if there’s a medical concern, we refer the patient to an ophthalmologist.
