Feb 16, 2022

There is no question that eye doctors are critical to maintaining overall wellness. They help us take care of our vision and keep our eyes healthy. But with so many different eye doctors to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? At Stratton Eyes, we want to help you understand the factors you should consider when choosing an eye doctor, as well as some tips on how to find the best one for your needs.

What is an optometrist?

An optometrist is a doctor who is licensed to provide comprehensive eye care services, like;

  • Eye exams and vision tests
  • prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions
  • management of vision problems

These are typically the doctors you would see on a regular basis to maintain your eye health and update any prescriptions.

Experience and Expertise

Make sure that your eye doctors have the right credentials and have been practicing long enough to diagnose and treat a wide variety of vision problems. Our doctors are highly-trained and have been practicing for over 2O years. In that time they have successfully treated hundreds of patients in Lexington, KY.

Make sure you have a great experience

Visiting a stale office and feeling like another number in a long line of patients can be frustrating and leave you feeling uncertain about your care. A critical piece to being a patient-focused team is having a staff that loves what they do and loves who they work with. You’ll see it on the faces of each one of our team members. They love serving you and that makes your experience even better.

Read the Reviews

Seeing previous patient reviews can sometimes be the best way to find the right eye doctor. We’re proud of our 5-star reviews because we know that they come from happy patients. In fact, most of our patients have seen us for years and keep coming back because they feel like a part of the family.

Do they take Insurance?

Make sure that your optometrist accepts your vision insurance carrier so you don’t get stuck footing the bill. At Stratton Eyes we accept all major vision insurance carriers and work with you to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.

What if I don’t have vision insurance?

Don’t worry, at Stratton Eyes we work with patients everyday who don’t have vision insurance. We have very affordable pricing and work with every patient to make sure they are getting the proper care within their budget.
