How to control the cost of an eye exam & glasses without insurance

affordable no insurance eye exams and glasses near Chicago

No vision insurance? No problem!

Getting an affordable eye exam and glasses without insurance is simple at Eye Boutique. In fact, many of our clients don’t have vision insurance and are still able to afford comprehensive eye care and brand name eyeglasses.

Learn the truth about eye care with and without insurance

Many vision insurance plans cover at least some of the costs of eye care in exchange for a monthly premium. You can also buy family or individual vision insurance (these vary in price, often around $15 to $20 per month for an individual).

Even when paying a monthly premium, with many plans you still have to pay part of the cost of your exam, optical lenses, frames, or contact lenses.

We understand how vision plans work, and we give our clients the best possible options and prices for eye exams and vision care, whether you have vision coverage through VSP, another provider, or none at all. 


Book your exam online or visit us to get a free consultation with one of our eye care specialists. We’ll take the time to answer your questions and explain your options.
