More than likely we do. We are on many vision insurance plans. Our doctors are medically credentialed and take many major medical health care plans as well for people who have health problems or have been diagnosed with a vision condition like cataracts, glaucoma or macular disease.
Vision plans are good and we all need all the help we can get to help save money on vision and major medical insurance for our health care.
Sometimes we may suggest the cost of the plan may not be as beneficial to you as if you didn’t have it. Even if your company provides you with a vision plan, they are still charging you in your major medical premiums but you may not know it.
The other situation with vision plans are they are restrictive in terms of testing for the visual health of your eyes. Our office then uses your major medical insurance if we find your general health or visual health to be poor and if you take medications. We also look at your visual history and your family’s visual health history.
Again many vision plans only dictate what frame and lenses a patient must obtain, how many pairs a patient is entitled to, the doctor a patient must see, and even the manufacturer of contact lenses a patient must wear! These restrictions do nothing to help the patient, as the quality of these materials is often low and do not provide the patient with optimal visual acuity and safety.
Furthermore, for example, a patient with a particular vision insurance may be forced into a low quality bifocal that does not meet their needs. This bifocal may be a lens that is far inferior to Custom Fit Lenses. The Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee specializes in custom fit lenses they study in their lab. Patient’s should not have to settle for lesser quality lenses that many vision insurance plans restrict the patient to as these lenses often induce swimmy headedness and induce peripheral distortion.
The Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee has a custom onsite lens lab. It is constantly researching new technology to improve vision and to provide every patient with crisp, clear sight!
