The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
Vision insurance is designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost. Learn about types of plans, coverage and payment options.

If you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
Although every effort is made to verify our network participation with your plan, and the details of your coverage, no guarantees are made and your total out of pocket costs cannot be determined until after your insurance receives and adjudicates the claim for your visit. If you are unsure of your coverage, our Dallas eye care experts strongly encourage you to contact your insurance plan using the number on the back of your card prior to your visit in our office
