Yes! If you have previous records including medical eye evaluations, glasses or contact lens prescriptions or other optometry or ophthalmology notes, it is helpful if you can send those to us or bring them when you come to visit us at Midtown Optometry. Baseline tests will help us better manage any eye conditions, and a contact lens or glasses history will allow us to understand how your vision has changed over time. For contact lens wearers, it is also useful to bring the boxes from the contact lenses you are currently wearing since this will save you a follow-up visit. Often we have new lenses available in your prescription if we need to give free trials to evaluate changes.
We are contracted with almost all vision insurance plans as well as many health insurance groups. For routine eyecare, we will bill your vision insurance on your behalf. For medical visits relating to your eye health, we are able to bill any PPO insurance including Medicare. No need to leave Midtown Santa Cruz for fantastic eyecare. Often times your insurance will have a copay for the visit that you would be responsible for at the time of the exam. Many vision insurance plans will also cover glasses or contact lenses. While there are fully covered options available, many plans will require an out-of-pocket payment for overages on premium lenses and frames.
