Office Policies/Financial Agreement

OUR MISSION: To strengthen our community by enhancing our citizen's sight and improving their total health by delivering personal care.

OUR PROMISE: As your trusted eye care professionals, our promise is to always recommend and offer to you our coveted patients the best medical treatments and options available despite the uncertainty of the insurance marketplace and coverages they may offer.

WELCOME: If you are a new patient to us or even returning patients who desire to be fit with eyeglasses or contact lenses, please be prepared for your visit to take 1 to 2 hours on average depending on your needs. We do our utmost to respect each individual's time, however we practice personalized health care and unexpected problems occur that occasionally will interrupt our schedule which could possibly cause you delays. Please accept our sincere apologies if you get delayed. Please help us by allotting appropriate time in your schedule and communicating to us anytime constraints you may have, so we may effectively serve your individual needs. If delays occur please discuss with us any time limitations you have, so we can expedite your visit or reschedule your appointment if necessary.

CANCELLATION/MISSED APPOINTMENT POLICY: Please kindly give us 48 hour notice if you cannot make your appointment. We have set aside time to meet your needs at your appointed time and therefore we have made that time unavailable to others. It is important to us to help as many patients as possible in meeting our mission to strengthen our community. We consider 15 minutes after your appointed time to be a missed appointment. If you truly have an emergency arise that will prevent you from making your appointment, please alert us as soon as possible. We have adopted the following policy for all other missed appointments: First missed appointment will result in a reminder and review of this policy. Second and all future missed appointments will result in a $25 fee to cover administrative costs. This fee cannot be covered by insurance. Thank you for your cooperation.

SERVICES: Medical eye care services vary widely based on the services performed. These services may incur additional costs to your vision exam or may change a vision exam to a medical exam as we determine what services are necessary for your situation. The total cost of your exam may not be known until the conclusion of the exam. Examples of medical services include but are not limited to management of cataract, glaucoma, floaters/flashes, ocular allergies, dry-eye syndrome, diabetic ocular complications and foreign body removal.

Vision exams are for those seeking eyeglasses or contacts. A contact lens fitting is additional and can vary depending on the type of lenses and amount of service required for a successful fit. An exam is often required to determine the type of fit necessary. It is noteworthy, most vision plans will not cover both glasses and contact lenses or fitting fees.

Refraction is the portion of the eye exam that allows the Doctor to determine your need for vision correction and is necessary for a glasses or contact lens prescription. Vision insurance benefits routinely cover this service as part of a vision exam, however Medical insurance does not and will typically incur an additional fee to you.

Do you want to be checked for a new eye glasses prescription?(May create a $65 charge with using medical insurance only.)

SPECTRALIS OCT Informed Consent

SeePort Optometry is proud to provide our patients with the most highly advanced technology available in retinal screening! Our ability to view your internal retinal health is now dramatically improved with Spectralis OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). Dr. Hicks is concerned about problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, macular holes/edema, macular pucker or epiretinal membranes, and diabetic retinopathy; all of which could lead to partial loss of vision or blindness.

Healthy and diseased Retina

EARLY DETECTION IS CRUCIAL

Spectralis OCT Provides:
• A set of annual eye wellness retinal scans for the macula and for glaucoma
• An in-depth view of the retinal layers (where disease usually starts)
• The ability to show you your images today during your exam
• A permanent record for your medical file, which gives your doctor comparisons for tracking and diagnosing potential eye disease

The $39 charge, which would be due at the time of your exam, is typically not covered by your medical or vision insurance unless being used to actively follow disease. Dr. Hicks would like for ALL patients to have a Spectralis OCT screening annually.

Advanced Glaucoma Screening

Normal Retina with thick donut shaped neurons

Glaucoma causes atrophy of the Retina or thinning due to lost neurons
