New Premium Lenses for cataract patients
Cataract patients can now benefit from the new premium intraocular lenses that provide better vision near, far and midrange.

Understanding Insurance Coverage
Clearing up what you have and what it covers
Since our Doctors are Ophthalmologists (Medical Doctors), some of our services are covered by medical insurance and some services by vision insurance.
Medical procedures such as cataract surgery and glaucoma treatments would come under medical insurance coverage.
Vision plans cover routine eye exams and either a portion or, in some cases, all of the expense for corrective lenses and frames.
The best way to find out exactly what coverage you have is to contact your insurance or plan provider. Our financial department will also be happy to assist you in determining the coverage you have. Simply present the information from your member card.

4. How do I know if I have Vision Coverage?
First, check your health card to see if vision is listed on your card. You can also call your insurance company and ask if you have vision coverage. If you have coverage, you need to know if your vision plan is administered by your medical insurance or if you have a vision rider. If you have a vision rider, we will need to know the plan name.
5. What if I think I have a medical problem?
We file insurance according to your chief complaint. If you are having a problem with your eyes, make sure you mention this during your exam.
