Once you have completed the forms, please bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.
Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.
The Day of Your Appointment:
Bring your current medical insurance card(s) with you.
