Told on the phone they took our insurance. Once we got there for our appointment they tell us they don't take it. Charge us $80 for eye exam. Gave us prescription that wasn't fully filled out. Called and asked for complete prescription and they just tell me some random numbers. Took prescription to office that does take our insurance. They tell us the prescription is obviously wrong. It makes no sense at all. The numbers that they printed (not even including the ones they told me) were impossible. After many phone calls and being not nice they "look" in the computer and change the numbers on the prescription. Had to take my child elsewhere to get correct prescription which wasn't even close to what they gave us. Other office says they get people with the same story from this office regularly. They take people's money and give them bogus prescriptions. Won't refund for wrong prescription. Do not trust them. They will make your eyesight worse.
Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
