Things to Know

Surgery: If you are being referred to our office for any kind of surgery your first appointment with our office will not be surgery. We will perform an evaluation and our surgeons will talk to you about all surgical options and schedule surgery at this time. You will receive a separate packet of information for your surgery day.
*This may be different for iLASIK or PRK patients.

Prior Authorizations: Some insurance plans require a prior authorization for services by a
specialist. Review your policy to see if there is such a requirement. Our office will be happy to
assist you in obtaining prior authorizations or approvals when needed but remember it is your
responsibility to know the requirements of your policy. Failure to obtain prior approval or prior
authorization could result in a service being non-covered, which will result in higher out of pocket
costs for you.

Medical Facility: We are a medical facility and do not participate with any vision plans.
