Most plans will cover a yearly routine exam. This does not usually include a contact lens exam and prescription, although some plans cover the fit. We will pull your benefits and inform you of the coverage before your appointment. Most plans will give you coverage towards materials (Contacts or glasses) each year as well.
What is covered by my medical plan?
Your medical plan will cover any office visit that is not considered routine vision. Please note that you will be responsible for any part of your balance towards your deductibles or coinsurance.
How long does it take to get glasses after an exam?
We offer an in house lab in which you could get glasses as quick as one or two days. However, some insurance plans must be sent to an outside lab. In this case, glasses may take 7- 10 days.
How long will my appointment last?
The appointment typically lasts between 15-20 minutes. We pride ourselves on service and you will not experience long waiting times for the doctors.
Will I get a copy of my prescription?
Yes, you will be given a print out of your prescription at the end of your exam.
Will my eyes be dilated at my exam?
Dilation is included in the comprehensive exam. However, we do offer a comfortable alternative to dilation that enables us to check the health of your eyes with a picture. With this option it is quick, painless, and there are no side effects.
What should I bring to my eye examination?
You should bring your vision insurance and medical insurance information to your eye exam. If you currently wear any prescription lenses, bring your eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses.
“Eye exams (anything to do with eyes) make me anxious. I’ve seen Dr. Bever for a couple of years now- and she always makes me feel comfortable. She explains the exam and the results completely and has a very calming way about her. As an added bonus, the Target optical location is very convenient. I recommend seeing her for your next eye exam!”
“They fit me into an already busy schedule and took care of everything I needed with a smile! I highly recommend them!”
“Dr. Kristin Bever has been my optometrist of choice for four years now. She is professional, thorough, and considerate, and she takes her time with me to answer questions. Recently, when I needed to be seen right away, she saw me that same day, reassured me what I experienced was normal, and referred me to an ophthalmologist should I have further concerns. This spoke volumes to me. Most importantly, I believe when I leave her office I have the correct contact lenses or glasses for me. I truly believe optometry is both medical science as well as art and she employs both to serve her patients.!”
