Healthcare Related Questions, Answered for You
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Vidalia Eyecare requires payment for services and products at the time of
your doctor visit and when ordering eyewear and contact lenses. We
accept cash, check and all major debit and credit cards.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR EYE CARE AND VISION PLANS?
Medical insurance covers a patient's eye care visit when the doctor
determines a medical diagnosis as to the outcome of a patient's reason for
their visit. Examples can be: eye infections, foreign body removal,
sudden onset of flashes and floaters, double vision, eye pain, dry eye
problems, blurred vision, headache, and many other symptoms. Medical
Insurance would also cover visits to monitor progressive eye conditions
such as cataracts, glaucoma, vitreous changes, corneal conditions,
diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and also when a patient's
general health issues and medications may be affecting their eyesight.
Vision Insurance is meant to cover simple, routine vision exams
including a basic refraction procedure and a basic eye health screening.
Vision Insurance coverage for glasses and contact lenses vary
significantly and can be very confusing to patients. We will help sort
through these optical situations for our patients using Vision Insurance.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE INSURANCE?
For patients who have no vision and/or medical eyecare insurance
coverage, Vidalia Eyecare offers a time of service cash discount on
professional services and most optical products.
Please call and speak with a patient services staff member who will provide more details.
