When choosing an eye care center in Chico, there are a few things you should consider.
If you have vision insurance, then you will need to find an eye care specialist that is covered by your plan. Otherwise, you could have to pay out-of-network charges, making your visit much more expensive. If you don’t have vision insurance then expect that all the copays and deductibles of your medical insurance will apply to your visit. If you are paying out of pocket please call in advance to check on our discounts and inquire on what the best way to pay for your visit is.
If you just need an eye exam, either of our two ophthalmologists or our optometrist can do this for you. The doctor you chose should be able to provide total care for all your eye health needs. If you are at risk for diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, or another eye condition then you will want to schedule with one of our ophthalmologists, they are specialists in glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. If you have no known existing conditions then you are free to schedule with our optometrist or either of our ophthalmologists; whichever is convenient to you.
Every office will be able to get you a new prescription for eyeglasses or contacts. However, if you want a one-stop-shop for your eye care and a new pair of glasses, then you want an office that has an eyeglasses boutique. This way, you can try on different styles and learn more about the different types of coatings and lenses from trained optometrists. Here at Reeve Woods Eye Center, we have an extensive collection of name-brand frames from which you can browse. If you don’t find what you are looking for in our shop we can order a frame style that you like. We have trained staff waiting to help you decide with lens options work best for your lifestyle needs. If you are interested in contact lenses we have a contact lens specialist on staff to provide quality fits. Even if you see a doctor from another office we can help you with ordering any hardware you are interested in.
Our ophthalmologists have decades of experience providing the Butte County area with reliable eye care. We are happy to provide cutting-edge surgical options for cataracts and glaucoma. Even if you just need a cute new pair of glasses we’d love to help you out. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at (530) 899-2244.
