We can now bill eye exams directly to some insurance agencies! Our optometrists ensure good eye health and life long vision for your whole family. The sooner an eye disorder is detected, the quicker it can be resolved positively. Eye exams can detect serious diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and high blood pressure. For continued good eye health, it is recommended that adults between the ages of 19-64 have complete eye examinations every two years. Infants should have their first eye exam at 6 months old to make sure both eyes are developing properly. Eye exams for children up to age 18 are covered by MSP once a year! Seniors from age 65 and above receive partial funding from MSP.
