Insurance & Payment (please refer to your insurance handbook for rules)

Self-Pay - If you are not covered by medical insurance, you will be expected to pay-in-full at the time of service.

Medicare - We accept assignment on Medicare. If you are a Medicare beneficiary and do not have secondary coverage, you will be responsible for payment of 20% of the Medicare allowed amount.

Deductible - Be prepared to pay your medical insurance deductible if it has not been met for the year.

Copays - You are required to pay your insurance copay at the time of service. Copay amount is usually noted on your insurance card or can be found in your insurance handbook.

HMO/Managed Care/OHP - If you are insured through an HMO, Managed Care, or OHP, you will need a referral-authorization from your Primary Care physician before your appointment.

Non-Covered Services - Some services might not be covered by your insurance. Most insurance plans, including Medicare, do not pay for "routine eye exams." Routine Eye Exams are exams which do not result in a medical diagnosis. Routine exams result solely in a refractive diagnosis such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, presbyopia (aging eyes), and many more in this category which are commonly exams for prescription for eyeglasses. Routine eye exam is also "screening for eye disease" which does not result in a medical diagnosis of the eye. In the event of Non-Cover Service by your medical insurance, you will be responsible for the charges.

Payment Options - We accept Cash, Check, Debit, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

    This place is filled with staff who values everyone who walks into their office. They take their time to show every patient the same level of excellence care and service. As response to the negative comments, I for one don't want anyone rushing to get me out the door, without full proper correction of what ever brought me in to their office. The office management, Janice and Paula have always been friendly and make sure that they have had great staff to provide only the best.

    I’ve purchased two pairs of prescription Oakleys from the optical shop here, one sunglasses and the other progressives. They had an excellent selection of both high-end and budget frames and Gary and Jenny were very helpful in choosing and fitting the frames. Both sets of glasses turned out great—amazingly clear and comfortable! Highly recommended!

    I could not be more pleased by the treatment I received from Dr. Rutar and her staff. She performed two cataract surgeries for me and each time she carefully explained all the options and risks along with the likely outcomes. I was completely confident in her approach, as well as in her staff, who are very pleasant and professional.

    Had debris in my eyes. Didn't think I flushed it all out. They got me in within a couple hours of calling and checked my eyes out for me. Very Professional and friendly staff. Highly recommend them. Thank you Dr. Barrus :)

    I was very impressed with Dr Rutar. She immediately ordered the proper blood tests to diagnose my rare disease. It was missed by other physicians for over 5 years. It's great to finally know!

    Terry and Wendy (in the surgery center) were WONDERFUL, PROFESSIONAL, and explained everything to me. They are amazing at what they do. I highly recommend the office. It is a caring environment with friendly staff. My first surgery was done at another location and they did not give me discharge instructions. Here they not only gave me the instructions, but took the time to explain it all to me. Thank you again for a great experience!!!

    I can't rave enough about the amazing Dr. Rutar. I deeply respect and admire her skill and knowledge. I had strabismus (eye muscle) surgery done by Dr. Rutar February 2018. I'm 32 and my left eye has been "lazy" my whole life, due to an underdeveloped muscle. More than a year later, my eyes are still aligned. The incisions healed beautifully and my depth perception is spot on. You'd never know what my eyes have been though and I'll be scheduling an appointment for contacts soon. If you're considering this surgery, as scary may seem, I urge you to push through that fear. It was well worth it. My life has changed for the better because of it. Telling Dr. Rutar, "thank you" - will never be enough.

    I had a great experience here. I was greeted promptly and treated courteously. Dr Spaulding and his staff were amazing. The length of my visit was to be expected for visiting a doctors office. I would not change a thing with the experience. Thank you!!!
