Professional eye care doesn’t need to come with an exorbitant price tag. We aim to provide you with top-tier eye exams and eye care at a cost you can afford. Our eye doctors are dedicated to your quality vision and eye health, and we’re always looking for ways to help defray the costs for our patients. To lower your expenses, we accept a wide range of medical insurances and vision insurance policies. VSP Vision Care is one of those policies. VSP Vision Care was founded by a group of optometrists in September 1955. More than 60 years have past, and the VSP network has grown to include 80 million members.
VSP Vision Care was founded so that more patients could afford to receive eye services. Many people avoid going to the doctor (especially services like eye care) if they think they can’t afford it. Sight is perhaps the most important sense you have, so you don’t want to avoid receiving professional care for your eyes. Many people have chronic conditions that lead to blindness. Millions of others have refractive errors such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. For the services you need, VSP Vision Care can help you cover the expenses.
Your eyes are delicate and complicated. Because there are so many different tissues and processes that must work together properly for sight, we have many different treatments and tests we do for our patients. Many of our services consist of:
In the eye exam alone, there are over 100 different tests we can do depending on your medical history and your current symptoms. We test for problems such as refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism), color blindness, eye coordination, lazy eye and more. We accept many plans and insurances at our office. Those include:
If you have VSP Vision Care, then your plan will cover a wide selection of designer frames that are affordable. When you select a designer frame for glasses or sunglasses, VSP Vision Care plan also gives you an extra $20-$40. That’s just one example of a perk of having vision care that you wouldn’t otherwise get.
You may go throughout your entire life with clear vision and no eye problems. However, millions of people do have eye problems, and those need to be monitored by a medical professional. Refractive errors of the eyes can grow worse without help, and these types of errors are very easily correctable with glasses and contact lenses. Receiving vision care can help improve your ability to learn and can boost your self-esteem. This is especially important for children as their vision develops during their first 10 years of life. After age 40 and especially after age 60, farsightedness is very common in patients. You should seek out vision care for visual changes, even if they are subtle.
You will also need to schedule an eye appointment if you have red, dry or itchy eyes or if you are seeing spots or flashes of light. If you notice you are losing your peripheral vision or central vision, these indicate more serious problems and you should be evaluated immediately to avoid blindness. If you also have diabetes or other chronic conditions, we highly recommend that you have regular eye exams, as these conditions affect your ability to see over time. The bottom line is that you really do need vision care if you want to be able to see clearly through the years. Those who see the eye doctor regularly can expect to catch eye problems early and keep their vision longer.

We work with patients every day with different insurances and plans and can help cater our vision services to work with your eye care plan.
