Simple Steps to Choose the Right Family Eye Doctor

  • By:Dr. Katie Dugan

When it is time to choose a doctor, it can be a stressful experience for parents to know the best services for each family member. Whether you are facing this decision because you have recently moved or you are on a new insurance plan, it is essential that you do your homework to pick an office that offers all of the treatments that might be needed. Not only do you need to choose a general practitioner, but it is also a good time to choose a dentist and eye doctor.

Tips to Choose an Eye Doctor

Here are a few things to consider when you are selecting an eye doctor for your family:

  • Available Services: In addition to basic eye exams and glasses, it is important that you choose an eye doctor that offers other services as well. For example, an office that offers Vision Therapy services can be essential if your child is suffering from ADHD or other behavioral issues.
  • Location: You shouldn’t travel far for the optometry services that are needed. Find an optical team that is located near your home in Temecula.
  • Experience: Find an eye doctor that has plenty of experience. At the same time, you need to ensure that the optometrist is keeping up with the recent changes in the industry. As the technology improves over the years, the eye care team needs to adjust the services and exams based on the latest advances in the field of eye care.
  • Insurance Coverage: Keep in mind that certain eye doctors fall on the list of “in-network” providers. Check your insurance coverage and find an office that is on the list of approved providers. If you have questions about the coverage that is available, then you can call the insurance provider or talk to our team about the billing options that are available.
