Online appointments are now available through our patient portal. These virtual eye exams will allow you to meet securely with one of our board-certified eye doctors all from the comfort and safety of your own home.
What are telemedicine and telehealth?
The use of electronic communications to provide or receive medical advice and treatment remotely is known as telemedicine. Consider it a virtual visit to your eye doctor’s office where you can receive treatment, diagnosis, advice and more.
Does insurance pay for my virtual eye exam?
Medicare and most commercial medical insurance covers telemedicine. A member of our billing department will confirm with your specific insurance plan and will notify you if your insurance does not provide coverage prior to your visit.
Vision insurance does not currently cover telemedicine.
Do I have to pay for the PocketPatient app?
No. The PocketPatient app is free to download and use.
Why should I use telemedicine?
Convenience is the most common reason. Telemedicine is great for people on the go and those who are either housebound or live in a remote area. It can also be a big time saver because you don’t have to drive to the office and wait for the doctor to see you.
