I Need to Reschedule My Appointment. Can I Do That?

Absolutely! We understand things come up from time to time. If you know you will be unable to make your scheduled appointment, we ask that you notify us within 24 hours of your appointment time. If a same-day reschedule is required, we will work with you to find the next available appointment to fit your schedule. Please call your EyeCare Associates office to do so.

 

Alternatively, you can reschedule your appointment by calling your EyeCare Associates office.

What is EyeCare Associates’ Late Policy?

At EyeCare Associates, we strive to provide the best eye care experience possible to all of our patients. To do this, all of our doctors, technicians and staff attempt to make each appointment efficient and productive. If a patient is more than 15 minutes late for their scheduled appointment, they may be asked to reschedule. We ask that all new patients arrive 15 minutes early to their scheduled appointment, and all returning patients arrive 10 minutes early. This ensures each patient has enough time to complete paperwork and update insurance or payment information. 

 

If you know you won’t be able to make your scheduled appointment, please inform our staff as soon as possible.

Which Insurances Does EyeCare Associates Accept?

In general, most EyeCare Associates offices accept United Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VSP and Eyemed. However, not all locations or all doctors accept the same insurance plans. If you have a specific question about which insurance your doctor accepts or you don’t see your insurance on the list, please call your local EyeCare Associates office for more information.

How Much Does an Eye Exam at EyeCare Associates Cost?

The cost of an eye exam at EyeCare Associates depends largely on your specific eye health needs. For example, getting glasses or contacts can add additional costs to your visit. Similarly, certain eye conditions requiring more specialized treatment can increase costs.

 

To get a better understanding of how much your eye exam may cost, please call your preferred EyeCare Associates office to discuss your specific needs.

What is EyeCare Associates’s Eyeglass Frame Return Policy?

EyeCare Associates is dedicated to helping you find the right pair of glasses that fits your lifestyle perfectly. Each of our locations has a state-of-the-art optical lab to ensure you always get lenses that best meet your needs. That being said, we know things don’t always work out according to plan. If you wish to return your frames for any reason, please come back into the office. Our dedicated staff will help you find frames that are a better fit for your style.

Does EyeCare Associates Offer Same-Day Eyeglasses?

EyeCare Associates does not offer same-day eyeglasses. Our locations each utilize a state-of-the-art optical lab to ensure each lens is crafted specifically to best meet your needs. While this produces better quality vision correction solutions, they take more time to make. Depending on the strength of your prescription and any selected optical add-ons (anti-glare, transition lenses, etc.), your lenses can take up to 10 business days to craft. It’s more than worth the wait!
