Optometry

 

The In-House Senior Services optometrists offer seniors the convenience and comfort of outstanding ocular healthcare in the comfort of their senior living facility. The In-House Optometry Care Team has the extensive experience in geriatric eye care to provide the best possible vision services quickly and efficiently. A comprehensive, on-site eye examination is the cornerstone of our program to maximize functional vision and maintain the resident’s independence.

 

An In-House affiliated Optician will dispense and fit eyeglasses and provide an eyeglass storage case to the resident. Optometry services not covered by the patient’s insurance provider are available on a fee-for-service basis. The Optician can perform most repairs and adjustments on-site at no cost to the resident, the resident’s family or sponsor, or the facility. When specialized care by an Ophthalmologist is recommended, In-House will write the referral.
