At City Optometry, we know that routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can add up in costs and become a real concern, especially for large families. In many instances, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance.

While health insurances help cover the costs from unexpected eye injuries or disease, vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost. Vision insurance is a benefit that is used every year, while health insurance is more often associated with treating and managing illnesses,  diseases, health problems, urgent care, etc.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
