Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q.How can I pay for my eye exam, eyewear purchase or surgical procedures?
    Levin suggests the options below:
    • Insurance:
      • You can use your insurance to cover a portion of the exam, eyewear or surgical expense.
      • If your insurance includes a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Savings Account (HSA), you can cover the remaining balance using that.
    • Out Of Pocket
    • Interest-Free Financing:
      • Care Credit: This provides an option for payment of large out of pocket costs, like Panoptix lenses, procedures, and even eyewear and contact lens purchases.
      • Starting October 1 through December 31, 2019, first-time CareCredit cardholders can earn a $100 statement credit. To learn more about Care Credit and this promotion, please click here.
  • Q.What if I have cataracts and glaucoma?
    If you're suffering from Glaucoma and Cataracts and are preparing for cataract surgery the iStent inject® may be the right fit for you.  The iStent inject® can be inserted during cataract surgery to help successfully manage intraocular pressure.
  • Q.What is a trifocal lens?
    A trifocal lens is an intraocular lens (IOL) that provides near, intermediate, and distance vision for clear, complete focus. The PanOptix® Lens is the first and only trifocal lens for cataracts in the United States that delivers enhanced quality and a complete range of vision.

  • Q.Do I need a seperate exam for contact lenses?
    Yes, contact lens prescriptions often differ from your regular glasses prescription. The doctor will take a separate set of measurements and work with each patient to determine the best lens option for them.
  • Q.How often should I have an eye exam?
    The standard of care is a yearly exam. Not only are we making sure that patients are getting the best vision possible with their glasses and/or contacts, we do a comprehensive evaluation that checks for any and all eye disease.
