Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Doctors of optometry (ODs) are the primary health care professionals for the eye. Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye.  After attending a university or college for their undergraduate education, optometry students concentrate specifically on the structure, function and disorders of the eye for 4 additional years during their graduate education to earn their doctoral degree. A residency program is incorporated into the curriculum.  Optometrists are Board Certified through the National Board of Examiners in Optometry as well as the individual state(s) where they practice.

No. I am an independent doctor of optometry who chose to locate my practice at Wal-Mart. I make no income from selling glasses or contacts, only from providing comprehensive exams and treating ocular disease.

Absolutely.  We provide a thorough dilated exam with the most advanced diagnostic instruments to evaluate your vision needs and uncover any other ocular conditions that may go undetected, if not regularly monitored. Our Doctors received their Optometric Doctorate’s degree (O.D.), after their Bachelors, via the same four years of training that all optometrists receive.  All of our Doctors are licensed and Board Certified to practice by the state after extensive testing.

We do routine eye exams as well as medical eye health evaluation.  The cost of an eye exam can vary based on the reason for the visit and the procedures performed to diagnosis the problem.  Our routine eye exams or general medical office visits start as low as $67. A basic contact lens fitting is $30 in addition to that. If you need astigmatism or bifocal contacts, or perhaps you want to wear contact lenses for the first time, there is a modest additional cost.  All of our returning patients receive a discount on their contact lens examination, regardless of the type of contacts they wear.

Yes.  We will supply a written prescription and summary of your exam as you leave the office.The prescription is valid anywhere in the U.S.

We believe it is important that all of our patients receive an annual eye exam. Your vision can change over a 12-month period. A regular check-up enables us to uncover any sight-threatening ocular conditions that can develop, unnoticed by you.

For the convenience of our patients, we accept most vision plans. When calling our office to schedule your appointment, please give us your insurance information so we can confirm your coverage.

We do additional testing with contact lens patients to measure the curvature of the eye to ensure that we prescribe the lens that optimizes fit and comfort. We also do an evaluation after you have worn the lenses for a given period to make sure there are no complications.

Not quite.  They are not all the same. The contact lens companies spend millions of dollars every year to improve their lenses and regularly introduce new and better technology.  It’s best to keep current and wear the latest and best lenses. Right now the companies are introducing new lens materials that allow much more oxygen to pass through, making them healthier to wear.  The patients are able to wear these lenses comfortably for 14 hours or more per day. We recommend these new materials to most patients, even though they cost a little more, because we believe they are better for their eyes in the long run.

Will my contact lens prescription allow me to buy any brand of lens I want?

Your prescription is for a specific brand of contact lens that our examination and evaluation determined to be the best for your vision and ocular health

No.  A torn lens can damage the delicate outer tissue of your eye and lead to serious infection. If you tear a lens and do not have a replacement, come into the office right away and we will provide, at no charge, a lens that you can wear until your new supply arrives.

Yes.  Wal-Mart will custom-make your glasses in one of its six ultra-modern optical labs, using top quality lens and frame materials. Because of Wal-Mart’s buying power and operating efficiency, you receive top-quality glasses at an everyday low price.
