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 we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:

*Please note: We have accepted the VSP vision benefit for many years and continue to take the majority of VSP plans. Starting in Feb. 2014, we stopped taking the VSP Choice plan, due to changes in the plan that we felt were not in the best interest of our Patients or our practice. However, we still take other VSP plans, including the popular Signature and Access plans. If you’re not sure which plan you have, just give us a call and we can verify your benefit and schedule an appointment. If you visit the VSP website, be sure to Login to make sure that you are able to see us!
