Payment Options

Insurance ImageAt Alamo Eye Care, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of medical and vision insurance, cash, and most credit cards. We inform our San Antonio 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 Alamo Eye Care 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.

We accept Cash, Debit Card, American Express, Master Card, Visa, and Discover.

We also accept CareCredit & Alphaeon Credit

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "They are fantastic. I did not have any issues. My eyes too were dilated, but they went over the billing very thoroughly with me. They let me pick out my glasses before they did their exam so I had no problems seeing what I was looking at. I would highly recommend them!"
