Doctors Valu Vision
It's a zoo in there when it's busy, but their coupons/sales are awesome. They have $19 and $29 eye exam specials...CHECK ONLINE BEFORE YOU GO... and after Black Friday they are $1 for a while!!!! We take the whole family (contact exams are not included). The lady, Asia, is phenomenal, she has the patience of a saint with kids. They take walk-ins and you can make appts. I subtracted one star because of the wait time in there, but they are a great option for us (without vision insurance) to get the whole family seen and it's affordable (2 adults, 4 kids, 2 Moms-in-Law). FYI: They also take Medicaid for eye exams for adults and both exams and glasses for kids, Medicaid does not cover glasses for adults.
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.
