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

Comprehensive eye exams screen for undiagnosed medical problems including glaucoma, autoimmune disorders, diabetes and even cancer.
Most adults should have a comprehensive eye exam from a licensed optometrist once every year or two (depending on your age, overall health, and whether or not you currently wear glasses).
