Insurance

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. 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.

Because our Avondale eye doctors provide both medical and routine eye care, we contract with a number of insurers to help cover the cost depending on your individual  medical and vision  needs.  See the list of insurers below.

To be sure that we can assist you, please check your insurance provider's website prior to your appointment to review your benefits and confirm that Estrella Eye Care is one of the contracted providers. Our office can help you find out if we are a contracted provider, but we usually cannot assist you when it comes to determining their benefit entitlement. Please contact us to make sure we are contracted with your specific Medical or Vision plan.
