Virtual Visits

Eye Care Associates is now offering virtual visits for non-urgent appointments.

The COVID crisis has made face to face appointments not possible except for emergencies. However, we are now able to use video chat technology to schedule an interactive visit with one of our doctors. Please be aware that these are billable encounters just as if you had come into the office and are covered by Medicare and some other major insurances.

During the COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is allowing virtual health visits through everyday technologies.

When should I visit the office in person?

Our virtual services aren’t right for everyone. We recommend you schedule an urgent clinic visit if you have:

  1. A serious eye injury
  2. Loss of vision
  3. Severe eye pain
  4. Severe Light sensitivity
  5. Sudden onset of floaters and/or light flashes
  6. A very red inflamed eye
