The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a US law that took effect April 2003. It is designed to provide privacy standards in order to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to doctors, hospitals, health insurance companies, other health care providers. These standards provide patients access to their medical records and more control over how their personal health information is used and/or disclosed. Evision Eyecare adheres to HIPAA guidelines with disclosure or use of all of our patients private information.
There are many factors in determining the final cost of your glasses. It is best to work with one of our Opticians to go over your needs, wants and budget to find the perfect pair of eyeglasses for you.
If your glasses are made by Evision Eyecare directly, your glasses should be ready in anywhere from one hour to five business days (depending on the complexity of your order/prescription). Sometimes your insurance company may require us to use their optical lab. In these cases, the insurance companies lab will dictate the turnaround time you should expect.
State law requires doctors to determine an expiration date for all written prescriptions. This would include eyeglasses and contact lenses as well as medications. The expiration date is determined first by state law, then by the individual needs of the patient which are determined by the doctor. In general, eyeglass prescriptions are valid for two years and contact lenses are valid for one year in the State of NH, unless your medical diagnosis calls for the doctor to alter the expiration date to ensure proper medical care.
Progressive multifocals are a completely different way to help you see clearly at all distances. Unlike traditional lined bifocals that have only two specific areas to see through (one for distance and one for near). Progressive lenses are designed with many different levels of power allowing your eyes to focus on objects as close as ten inches to as far as distant signs and everywhere in between.
You do not need an appointment to pick out glasses or to order your contact lenses. Our Opticians are happy to help you anytime Monday – Friday 9:00am – 6:00pm.
Depending on the reason for your visit, it could last anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour. Plan to be here for at least 1 hour, if you are having an eye exam and planning to pick out some amazing glasses!
