Insurance

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eye wear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eye wear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:

COVID-19 News

We are following recommendations from our governing body to postpone routine vision care, and are only opening the office to emergency patients at this time. Patients can reach the office by calling 856-832-4950 or emailing us at vec@sjvillageeyecare.com. We will be returning phone calls and emails in a timely manner.

In the meantime, here are some recommendations to stay healthy while we work through this:

Urgent/Emergency Eye Care:

⁃ Avoid urgent care and the hospitals for eye problems to keep the hospitals more available for COVID-19 care. Call or email our office for emergency eye care needs.

Vision Strain Awareness:

⁃ Children and adults alike are about to spend even more time than usual on their tablets, phones and computers and the risk of eye strain will consequently be much higher. To reduce the risk of eye strain, try to follow the “Rule of Twenty”; when performing prolonged near activities, do the following:

- Maintain a working distance of at least 20 inches (the further you hold things from your face the less focusing effort is required).

- Take a vision break every 20 minutes to look far away (at least 20 feet) for at least 20 seconds.

- For children, the break should be longer.

Social Distancing:

⁃ Help everyone stay safe by social distancing and eliminating unnecessary social interactions. This will make a huge difference in delaying the load on our hospital system so everyone has the best chance of surviving when they become infected with COVID-19

Contact Lens Care:

⁃ Remove your contact lenses nightly. Even if you've been told they are safe to sleep in and you've been doing it with no problems, this is not the time to get an eye infection.

⁃ When you remove your lenses be sure to clean them with designated contact lens cleaning solution, using fresh solution nightly. DO NOT USE WATER!

⁃ Keep your contact lens case clean! If you are having trouble finding cases or contact lens solution to purchase, we have some available at no charge.

⁃ Throw away your lenses on time. Acuvue Oasys lenses are designed to be thrown away every 2 weeks, while other brands such as Air Optix, Biofinity and are monthly disposable lenses. Daily disposable lenses are single use lenses and should be thrown away after every use. If you aren’t sure what your disposal schedule is supposed to be, contact us via email (vec@sjvillageeyecare.com) and we will be happy to help you.

⁃ If you are at risk of running out of contact lenses, our office can order you more and have them shipped directly to your home.

Emergency Glasses:

⁃ If you have the misfortune of breaking your glasses, contact us and we will do our best to get you an emergency pair as soon as possible.

Our office number is (856-832-4950) and our direct email address is vec@sjvillageeyecare.com. We check our messages and email regularly and will respond as soon as possible.

Wishing the best for you and your families and looking forward to working together during this crisis and into the future!
