Vision Insurance vs. Medical Insurance

We often have patients that have both vision plans and medical insurance.

They are very different in terms of the services they cover and it is important for our patients to understand those differences.

Vision plans are mainly designed to determine a prescription for glasses/contact lenses in normally healthy eyes.

It is not equipped to deal with complex medical conditions, previous/present diagnoses, and/or treatment/management plans (even if already ongoing). When a chief complaint necessitates a medical diagnosis or if a condition is present or pre-exists (such as dry eyes, floaters, headaches, cataracts, glaucoma, high blood pressure, diabetes or any other eye disease) it becomes a requirement to file the visit with your major medical carrier and the co-pays for that insurance will apply as well as any non-covered services.

Our office does not make these rules and they are defined by the insurance carriers themselves.

There is no way to know prior to the examination which type of insurance our office will be able to file for you. We make every effort to be on every major carrier for your convenience and we will file those claims for you. In the event that we do not take your major medical/vision insurance, we will provide you with an itemized receipt so that you may file with your carrier for reimbursement. If you have any questions, please let us know.

What Our Customers Have to Say…

The best optometrist office ever! I typically dreaded making eye appointments because every office I have previously been to always felt more like a uncaring business. However, ever since coming to See & Company, I know I'm in 100% good caring hands. Dr. Emily and Susan are both friendly, kind, very knowledgeable and thorough in their work. The office is very clean/modern and they have trendy, unique and affordable frames. And great location in Centreville! Thank you Dr. Emily and Susan for always providing the best service each time I go, I have never been disappointed with See & Co!


See and Company was amazing! Today was my first time going and I loved it! The staff is so inviting and friendly, and Dr. Chen was so nice I felt like I was talking to a friend! I was in and out in no time, and they all helped me picked out my glasses! The office was very clean and well put together my glasses were even ready less than an hour later!! I will most definitely be a returning customer!


We’ve been going to See & Co for 2 years after a friend recommended Dr Emily. I love the excellent service my entire family receives. Her equipment is state of the art. Dr Emily and her staff are super friendly and very helpful in picking out frames after your exam. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for an eye exam. See & Co provides top notch, professional service!


Dr. Chen was so efficient and kind when I got my eye exam. I had a very pleasant experience and nothing short of extraordinary customer care. She took the time to make sure the prescription was the correct one for my needs bringing out the lenses to try in daylight. You can tell the staff is very happy to work here as well. What a lovely experience to come a get something done as basic as an eye exam. They are also serious about abiding by covid guidelines. Every single pair of glasses I tried on were all collected into a basket to be sanitized and put back on display. Very impressed!


Always delighted at their service and professionalism. They are very patient in explaining insurance questions and helping customers picking our glasses. Thank you
