What is vision insurance?

Our staff will be happy to assist you in understanding what coverages you have under your vision plan.  It is important to understand that most vision plans offer  discounts on routine vision services such as vision testing and eyeglasses. They do not, however, cover the costs associated with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease.

Vision Insurance
Why medical insurance too?

 Your medical insurance covers all testing related to diagnosis and treatment of eye problems other than the need for glasses or contact lenses.  Medical insurance covers the cost of any testing associated with eye disease diagnosis or management as well as emergencies and unexpected conditions of the eye.  When your eye doctor  performs the eye examination, the medical insurance is needed to file the claim for any health related procedures.   Eye related conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and other medical conditions that affect the eye all fall under your medical insurance policy. 

We are happy to explain these different coverage types and help you get the most of your benefits while offering you the best eye care and vision services possible.  

I have medicare and medicaid and always had touble finding a doctor that will honor my plan. I looked all over in Bristol for a better doctor but could not find one until I found Destination Eyecare. These people really take their time to help you, whether picking out new frames, or if you have a vision problem they can explain it to you better. Fantastic place!
