We are not an assembly line, multi-doctor practice with long wait times, and grumpy staff members. We see patients on time. We don’t treat you like a number. Our space is warm, open and friendly.
We take the time to explain things to you. Your insurance/costs, the finer points of the exam, and the recommendations for your ocular health – we try and make sure these important things are clearly explained to you.
Our office is easily accessible online. Appointment scheduling and contact lens orders are both available via our website whenever it’s convenient for you. And Dr. Tom is happy to answer follow-up questions via email if needed.
A comprehensive eye exam with a refraction (the process by which the doctor determines your prescription) for glasses is $107. If you would like a contact lens prescription, you need a contact lens exam as well. The contact lens exam fees range from $55 to $150 depending on the complexity of the fit and history with contacts. Contact lens prescriptions are only valid for one year.
We accept vision plans for routine eye exams (i.e. glasses and contact lens exams). We accept VSP, EyeMed, Blue View Vision and CignaVision. If you do not see your plan listed, contact your benefit provider to see if we are a participating ROUTINE VISION provider for your plan. Your benefit provider will also be able to tell you if you are eligible for services at our office. Most medical insurance plans offer vision coverage through a vision insurance company, not through the medical plan. Please note we no longer accept FEP Blue Vision, Avesis, CompBenefits/VCP, Superior or Davis Vision.
Certain exam diagnoses (e.g. inflammation related to contact-lens wear, pink eye, or other medical problems with the eye) are not covered under routine vision insurance. These are considered medical visits and are billed to your medical insurance instead. We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, and Humana medical insurance.
