Why see an Optometrist with no Insurance Coverage?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 61 million adults in the US are at high risk for, or already suffering from, some form of severe vision loss. Around 7% of children under 18 have diagnosed eye conditions, let alone millions more who are not so lucky.

However, only 12 million adults will see an eye doctor in any given year. The response figures are even bleaker for children. In 2017, the American Optometric Association publicly issued a concern that a majority of children, even those who end up receiving professional optometry services at some point, are primarily being examined in a nurse’s or doctor’s office. This means the number of undiagnosed cases in children and adults are easily in the tens of millions.

An eye exam does not just detect eye conditions. It can also detect physical ailments ranging from diabetes and high cholesterol, to autoimmune disorders and even cancerous tumors. But in order for this exam to be comprehensive and thus, as accurate and thorough as possible, it must be performed by a licensed optometrist who has access to the best technology and tools available to do the job right.

How Much Does an Eye Exam Cost Without Insurance?

How much does an eye exam cost without insurance? In general, uninsured patients have three options when it comes to getting an eye exam:

  1. Retail Chain Clinics like superstore vision centers
  2. Discount Clinics like large eye care chains
  3. A Private Optometrist like the doctors at Tatum Eyecare

Of course, only licensed optometrists are legally allowed to work at any of these places. However, the level of individual service and care you will receive might be affected by the option you choose. Then again, so will the cost. Taking all of this information into account; an eye exam, not counting any additional procedures and/or your prescription glasses, can run anywhere from about $75 to $200. We know this is a lot of money, That is why we offer uninsured discounts of 30% on eye exams and eyewear.

Why Choose Tatum Eyecare?

I had an amazing experience here! I received exceptional service from the optician Lily, who helped me find the right glasses that fit my big head. She also was very knowledgeable about their products, and made great recommendations for my high prescription. I appreciate all of her hard work and will definitely be back again next year. Also a very clean environment!

This is my second year of exams with Dr. Fuller. He has a great attitude and makes the exam experience very comfortable. I’ve had exams with many other doctors, and most of the time I feel as if I’m being hurried along and that my concerns or questions are not being addressed. This is not the case with Dr. Fuller, he’s attentive and takes the time to explain things and address my questions. In addition, the office staff is great as well, patient, helpful and understanding. As long as I live in the greater Phoenix area and he is in practice I will be returning to Dr. Fuller.

Started coming here 3 years ago; love this office. Staff and Dr are always so kind. Never have to wait and staff is fun and helpful when picking out new frames. I’ve already recommended them to my family. Really glad I chose them as my eye care office!

My son and I have been with you for years. Friendly accommodating service. You always go the extra mile to take care of us. The Dr.s and staff always make our visit personable, friendly. I carry your business cards to hand out.

I highly recommend Tatum Eyecare. My entire experience from my exam with Dr. Felton, whose both courteous and professional and selecting my glasses with Crystal, was superb! Crystal, was knowledgeable, informative and professional. I was in a frenzy to get new glasses, and find the right place to accommodate me since moving to Arizona. Crystal, from our initial conversation on the phone, made the entire process quite seamless. I will certainly come back for my next pair of designer glasses! Additionally, they offer a decent selection of designer frames as well!! Many thanks for a pleasurable experience!
