The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses. We all know that when it comes to insurance it can be confusing and frustrating. We are here to help you understand and maximize your insurance benefits.

Dr Kracher provides both medical and routine eye care, and accepts a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs.

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 eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
