Finding the right eye doctor or optometrist can be difficult, but super rewarding.
Many optometry offices can be found through search engines such as google, safari, bing, and yelp. Another way is through social media apps such as facebook, instagram, tik tok, twitter, etc. Word of mouth in the community can also be huge when trying to find an eye doctor. Insurance is the other common way one will find an eye provider. Today, we can dive into how we can find an eye doctor for you.
- Although there are plenty of search terms you can use, here are some of the more common and popular ones.
Common search words to find an eye doctor include:
- Eye doctor near me
- Optometrist office near me
- Eye exam near me
- Walk in eye exam
- Eye doctor “zip code”
- Eye doctor “city”
With these terms, you can find an optometry office that best fits your needs! Word of mouth and reviews from other patients are a good indicator of whether the office can provide quality eye care.
2. Does this office accept my eye insurance?
This is a common question and the best answer we can give you is call that office. Yes you can look it up with your insurance card, but sometimes all the numbers and companies can cause chaos and confusion. With insurances such as eyemed, vsp, spectera, davis, superior vision, blue cross blue shield, and more, things can get complicated quick. Many eye offices including ours can help you verify and find if you are in network either through the phone or in person. If you don’t have an insurance plan, many offices offer a cash pay discount for those in need of an eye exam.
3. Schedule an eye exam near me?
Yes, this is the most common way to search for an eye office. Many optometry offices have online schedulers on their websites to book an eye appointment. However, you can also click their call to action which usually leads to their telephone number to book with a live receptionist.
4. How long does an eye exam take?
Depending on your eye health, an eye exam can last from 30 minutes to an hour.
5. Do I get an eye prescription at my exam?
Yes! Majority of eye doctors will prescribe a glasses or contact lens prescription for those in need of one. In some cases, a prescription is not given due to adaptation to a prescription for contacts or the need for a recheck on the prescription a different day.
