Our Practice


As primary eye care providers, we treat and manage the health of your eye. We accept both Medical insurance (primary) and Vision insurance (secondary). These two insurances are very different in terms of the services they cover. We at Atteberry Eye Centers find it crucial for our patients to understand their differences and how they are used to help provide coverage for the treatment and management of the health of your eyes.

Please provide your medical and vision insurance plans when scheduling an appointment so that we can maximize your policy benefits.

Vision Plan

Determination of vision correction, including glasses or contact lens prescriptions, is the primary use of vision coverage. Vision plans often include coverage for purchasing glasses and or contact lenses. Vision plans are not equipped to deal with complex medical diagnoses and conditions. They do allow for the screenings of medical conditions, but once those conditions get diagnosed, medical insurance is the main form of coverage needed. Vision plan benefits may include coverage for the following conditions.

  • Hyperopia (farsighted)
  • Myopia (nearsighted)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (decreased ability to focus)
  • Computer Eye Strain
  • Glasses
  • Contact Lenses

Medical Insurance

Medical conditions (such as diabetes, dry eye, cataracts, etc.) get covered through your primary medical insurance.
