We are providers for:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield

We would be happy to submit to your insurance for you. However, this doesn’t imply we are providers for all insurance carriers.
It is also important to remember even though you may not have vision insurance, some exams are considered medical and may be covered by your medical insurance. As an optometrist we treat not only the vision but the health of the eye.
We offer a cash discount for paying the same day of exam and not submitting it to insurance. So ask before your exam.
Myopia (Nearsightedness) Nearsightedness, or myopia, as it is medically termed, is a vision condition in which people can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred.
Hyperopia (farsightedness) Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen more clearly than close ones.
Astigmatism Astigmatism is a common vision condition that causes blurred vision. It occurs when the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is irregularly shaped or sometimes because of the curvature of the lens inside the eye.
Presbyopia Presbyopia is a vision condition in which the shape of the crystalline lens of your eye changes. These changes make it difficult to focus on close objects.
Computer Vision Syndrome Computer vision syndrome, also referred to as digital eye strain, describes a group of eye- and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader and cell phone use.
Cataract A cataract is a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Depending upon its size and location, it can interfere with normal vision.
Diabetic Eye Care Eye care is important for those with diabetes. Learn more about symptoms, prevention, and treatment of Diabetic retinopathy.
Dry Eye Dry eye is a condition in which a person doesn't have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision.
Conjunctivitis (pink eye) Often referred to casually as “pink eye”, conjunctivitis is the swelling or inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner surface of the eyelid and covers the white part of the eye. Causes may or may not be infectious, or allergy related.
Glaucoma Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that lead to progressive damage to the optic nerve. It is characterized by loss of nerve tissue that results in vision loss. People with glaucoma can lose nerve tissue, resulting in vision loss.
Macular Degeneration Macular Degeneration is an eye disease affecting the macula (the center of the light-sensitive retina at the back of the eye), causing loss of central vision.
Floaters & Spots Spots (often called floaters) are small, semi-transparent or cloudy particles within the vitreous, which is the clear, jelly-like fluid that fills the inside of your eyes.
Retinal Detachment Retinal detachment is a tearing or separation of the retina (the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye) from the underlying tissue, possibly resulting in vision loss.
