Insurance & Payments

happy young family hispanicThe cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families in the Palo Alto and Sunnyvale communities.

In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses. A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease.

Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
