If we have seen you before, we already have all your previous medical information on file. In most cases, insurance information doesn't change year to year. Unless you have had any major medical or vision changes, we will be able to get started right away saving you some time and effort. If you schedule online, no need to fill out the "pre-exam paperwork." If you are calling to schedule an appointment (831.426.7172) just let our receptionist know that you are a returning patient, and we will pull all your previous information. No need to come in early. We strive to be on-time with all our appointments to value your time.
Often times the entire family will be covered under the same vision and medical insurance. We can check family eligibility for vision exams as well as glasses and contact lenses. Children should have a comprehensive eye exam before starting school at age 4 or 5 at the latest. A school screening or vision exam at the pediatrician is not as comprehensive as the workup from an optometrist.
We can often book families all in the same time block to make things easier on parents.
