Top Four Things to Know

1. How to use your BC insurance (HPHC): 1 eye exam covered every calendar year after a $25 copayment. Other insurances are accepted. Exams are available for $70 for those without exam coverage.

2. Payment options: Only debit, credit and FSA/HSA cards are accepted for exams, product, and relevant copays (please no cash or check!)

3. No disruption to your day. Exams without dilation are available for those who need to get quickly back to work. Exams must be booked in advance.

4. Cancellation Policy:  Cancellations more than 24 hours before an appointment will never be charged. Cancellations within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment will result in a $50 cancellation fee.
