Visited this center once and wont again. The doctor and front desk were nice, However the woman in charge of payment methods was absolutely horrid and rude. We had an insurance company that had not yet provided us with a card but a temporary paper to use until our card was mailed to us. When the front desk did not recognize this paper they sent out the woman in charge of payments, who refused to even look at the paper and says, and I quote, "No, I dont look at papers." and looked at us like we had some kind of plague. She wouldnt even let us try to explain what our papers were. We of course paid in cash (which is not an issue for us thankfully) for that one appointment, and decided to take out business elsewhere to people who WOULD look at our papers, did take the time to call and ask about them, and give us treatments. If kelly eye center does hear about this I do hope they are kicking themselves, because the insurance form you chose to not even read covers every single thing. And I do mean everything. :) We have taken thousands and thousands of dollars worth of business to a neighboring clinic. Hopefully they are more considerate to future possible patients.

Not impressed with Kelly Eye Center for cataract surgery. They treat their patients like a commodity, no personal touch at all. They rush you thru don't answer questions, don't submit ALL the charges to your insurance company just the ones they know will be covered. In fact it's not their job to make that decision and I suspect from comparing my the charges to the insurance charges that they in fact submitted some of the charges but charged me cash on top. Particularly suspicious is the $500 charge that was submitted to my insurance and paid but I paid $500 cash for the laser. The paper trail doesn't match. And let's not even get started on the under-the-table $300 paid (per eye) to my optometrist for recommending Kelly to me. Avoid this crew!

We won't be back. Scheduled an 8:45 appointment and did not get seen for 25 minutes. Demanded that I wait for another 25 minutes with my 15 year old in an empty office while the doctor got around to finishing the visit. This isn't a cancer diagnosis...I think a 15 year old can handle it. No respect for our time. No apology for the delay. Not a place to go if you have job/family.

Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
