Payments Options

Insurance ImageAt Eye Care First, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our Windsor patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at Eye Care First is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current vision plans are designed to cover most of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.

Contact our office at 519-948-9797 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.

OHIP

In Ontario, people 65 years and older and those younger than 20, are covered by OHIP for a routine eye examination plus any follow-up assessments that may be required.

Also,people aged 20 to 64 years with specified medical conditions affecting the eye can receive an OHIP insured regular eye examination once every 12 months. Anyone with the following conditions are entitled to an eye examination coverable by OHIP: diabetes mellitus, glaucoma, cataract, retinal disease, amblyopia, visual field defects, corneal disease, strabismus, recurrent uveitis or optic pathway disease.

Anyone who is between the ages of 20 to 64 who have certain medical conditions not listed above may also be covered for regular eye examinations. They should discuss this with their primary health care provider.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.

Other Payment Options

Our Windsor optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Eye Care First, we also accept cash and major credit cards. Call 519-948-9797 today to schedule your eye exam today.

  • "Austin Matthews $11.6 million
    John Tavares $11 million
    William Nylander $10.2 million

    Watching my daughter become a more confident person, better student, accept the challenges and continue to have a positive outlook...

    PRICELESS!

    You can never put a price on seeing your child blossom and become an overall better person.

    Thanks for your time, energy, patience and dedication to helping people (my daughter)."

  • "Nick appears to have more confidence, his concentration is better and he has less headaches and nausea. He appears to have an easier time getting through his homework and has complained a lot less."

  • "Vision therapy has literally been a life changer for Luke. When he was first assessed, he had probably some of the lowest scores ever recorded at this practice Luke had gross and fine motor issues as well as poor reading comprehension and his hand-writing was almost impossible to decipher. He was extremely impulsive, impatient and…non-sensical as he didn't seem to know what to say or talk about.

    Dr. Huang…remained positive and encouraging and Luke quickly started to show improvements, which was first evident in his balance and co-ordination. As time went on his impulsivity became less and his conversation much more appropriate and well thought out. Teachers were commenting on how neat his printing was getting and noticed a very obvious improvement with reading comprehension. His visual skills went from completely out of range to completely normal for his age. We are so thankful to Dr. Huang…and staff for all of their knowledge, patience, and encouragement throughout Luke's VT journey."

  • "Vision therapy has changed my life for I can now continue to enjoy reading again. No longer will the words bounce off the page and the pages become blurred. No more double vision or headaches. I can read to my hearts content."

  • "Vision therapy has helped Enzo in every facet of his life. Unbeknownst to us, Enzo was seeing double until he was 6 years old. After meeting with Dr. Huang the first time all things could then be explained; why he had such a hard time learning his letters, why he wasn't able to catch or hit a baseball. Why he often became confused or tired looking at story books. The decision to begin therapy was an easy one for the simple reason it would make learning easier. We quickly began to see results. He quickly learned the skill of "making it one." He nearly immediately learned his letters, began reading in French and completed tasks other people take for granted. The most amazing moment was the first time he was able to hit a baseball. He began to cry and proudly proclaimed, "I did it!" The pride he had for himself in that moment made everything worth it. He also improved 5 reading levels in 1 year and can do all the things he once couldn't."

  • "Connor started vision therapy in November 2017. We brought our boys for eye exams in March 2017, in chatham. Our oldest had perfect eyesight. Connor then had his turn in the chair. The doctor became progressively worried and advised we call Dr. Huang. The appointment was set up and after Connor's initial assessment, Dr. Huang was confident he and his team could help Connor.

    Week after week of in-office vision therapy and daily at-home therapy [home exercises], Connor did progress.

    As a goalie, he was better at tracking the puck, depth perception and all-around making great saves!

    He is doing exceptionally well in school, currently Grade 4 and is achieving A's and B's. We are very thankful to Dr. Huang and his team at Eye Care First!"

  • "Owen's a high energy kid who wasn't progressing in sports despite being in various activities and continued to need increases in his prescription glasses--the reason we came.

    Today, Owen's vision has remained stable. He is also more proficient during physical activity (eg. catching, throwing, seeing the "whole" ice, passing, hitting, etc). A bonus was Owen now has more self-confidence and control as he tends not to get as frustrated with himself or others when skills aren't acquired as quickly. Super thrilled :)"

  • "I have more confidence and [am] more social and I can walk for miles without stopping and things are more clear. I can do more stuff like before I would say I can't, now I'm confident and I just do it now LOL. I make jokes and people laugh and all LOL and my balance is better."
    JH
  • "Vision therapy has changed so many things in my life. I can now walk balanced and not off balance. I can read books, etc., and not get the letters messed up. The I fast forward the remote (TV), I can now watch it [and not feel nauseous]. I can go into stores and not [have the urge to] walk out [because of] people moving/lights. I no longer run into shelves, etc., at stores when I'm pushing a cart. Etc, etc, etc.

    PS I made friend with the lovely ladies and I got to meet Ian [a little friend also in VT]."

  • "Vision therapy changed my life in many ways. Vision therapy helped me stay more focused on school, helped me with the amount of time it would take me to remember a simple (small) piece of information. Vision therapy allowed me to balance my time well and set my priorities straight. It helped me change my mindset in everything. I went from always saying "no," to always saying "maybe," to always saying "yes!" Vision therapy is the best thing that's happened to me, it changed my life."

  • "1) Every week looking forward for enjoyable, as well challenging activity. I was doing for myself, yet if it were working, it would bring more peace to my family--being less exhausted from work, able to spend more time with boys or engage with them or my wife in more effective/intuned way. I think it helped with it, at least a bit.

    2) I think I am reading more efficiently, with less strain.

    3) I think my capacity to make dictated reports has improved. (I do still avoid/dread to pick up novel book and read to use it as relaxing/leasure time activity).

    4) VERY IMPORTANT: This opportunity/experience HUGELY BROADENED my professional clinical acumen, knowledge horizon, etc, allowed me to grow as scholar, care-coordinator, patient advocate, medical expert.

    Please share it with RCPSO and it's psychiatry division."

  • "I feel vision therapy has totally changed my daughter's life. She has become more confident in herself. She has seen the change in her vision and control of her eyes. Her confidence has soared! Thank you so much!"
    PB
  • "His eyes work together. He reads on his own more. He now has depth perception (3D). He can see better. He is more relaxed. He is calmer. He calms down quicker and realizes when his "fan" is high. He can focus better. His imagery wonderful.

    An amazing experience. It improved my child's life."
    MS
  • "Fourteen months ago my daughter started vision therapy. She was struggling to learn to read and although she like school, her confidence was decreasing. Within months of starting vision therapy, she was reading and starting to make gains at school.

    The process has been long and a lot of hard work, but it has been a worthwhile investment. She loves reading now and has made gains in confidence in many areas of her life. She can now ride a bike, complete math work independently and even had the confidence to audition for the school play.

    Vision therapy has made a huge difference in my daughter's life and we are excited to see her continue to thrive."
    JM
  • "I have become more focused in school and have seen a major [increase] in my school performance. I have become better at studying and am now able to study and do work in noisy situations. I have also enjoyed the time I spent at the office with all of the girls and am very sad that I am leaving. Although you won't get rid of me that easily :)."
    SR
  • "I started vision therapy in 2019 because I sustained a concussion during a football game. My eyes were sensitive to even the smallest amounts of light and I couldn't read without becoming symptomatic. Now, I can read fine and stare into the sky on a sunny day and I can "blame" this recovery on vision therapy."
    ED
  • "Vision therapy has helped M discover the joy of reading. He no longer experiences daily headaches after a long day at school. M also attributes his success in school to vision therapy."
    LM
  • "Vision therapy has allowed me to gain greater control over my eyes, and is making them less tired or strained. It also prevents them from getting too myopic in a short period of time. I feel that I am now able to use my eyes more efficiently. All this makes me more confident when I do work with my eyes."
    YL
  • "It's been a long adventure--from a daycare teacher pointing out an eye turn, to trying to get a JK to wear glasses, to watching a child see 3D for the first time in 8 years! VT has challenged E to work hard and think about her body in ways most kids her age don't. She's a confident kid--able to express things about herself and the world around her eloquently because she's always had to put in the extra thought and effort.

    We've made huge gains and with every success she's been able to build.

    Thanks Guys!"
