Dilation is the widening of the eye’s pupil in order to allow in more light giving your physician a better view of the back of the eye. Whether or not patients are dilated for an exam, depends on the reason for the exam, age, overall health and the risk of eye disease. In general, most patients are dilated at least once a year.
Both Avery Eye Clinic and Avery Optical will submit insurance claims on behalf of patients. Although we file insurance claims as a courtesy to patients, patients are still responsible for any copays, deductibles, co-insurance, out-of-pocket and/or non-covered service amounts. These additional amounts are due at the time services are rendered. We currently accept all major debit and credit cards, cash and checks. Care Credit financing is also available.
Payments can be made online HERE.
If you have any questions and/or concerns regarding a bill, please contact our office at 936.539.4500 and choose option 3 to speak to a Billing Specialist.
There is a fee of $25 for a copy of your complete medical records. However, a summary of your visit is available to you on each appointment at no cost. For a copy of your complete medical records, a release form must be filled out and signed by the patient and the $25 fee must be paid prior to the release of medical records. A copy of the Medical Release form can be found on our website under Patient Resources and then Patient Forms.
