Cavett, Sonja
This was my first experience with any eye care business... After my eye exam, my insurance would only cover glasses or contacts. I chose to have them pay for contacts, so they fitted me for contacts and gave me a temporary pair and said I would recieve a follow up call within 2 weeks... No call ever came. Infact, over a month later I hadn't heard anything about my contacts coming in... Frustrated, I called to inquire only to hear the lady deny that I had ordered any contacts according to their records. Not the best 1st impression... Months later, I got the idea to check with my insurance company to see if they had been charged... The insurance rep. put me on hold while he contacted Cavett Eye Care. When he returned, BINGO!!! They charged my insurance $200 for contacts that they never ordered. Fraud... Not sure if the insurance co. pressed any charges, but they credited my insurance back... He said the lady's excuse was that "he was going to order contacts"... Apparently they charge insurance on presumptions. Never got my contacts, I do business elsewhere.
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.
