Ophthalmology Associates is staffed by dedicated professionals and technicians who are dedicated to making your visit pleasant and convenient. Before your appointment, we recommend you review the tips and information below to make your visit a smooth one.
To speed up the registration process, please bring your eye-glasses and/or contact lenses and an up-to-date list of all your medications and eyedrops. Include your current insurance card and one form of photo identification.
We are available to answer your scheduling and financial questions during normal office hours at (210) 223-5561.
We make every effort to schedule routine appointments as soon as possible and see emergencies the same day you call. When planning your appointment, please allow adequate time for a comprehensive eye examination (this usually includes dilation). If your treatment should require hospitalization, our staff can make the necessary arrangements for you.
Insurance Card & Photo I.D.
Don’t forget your current insurance card and one form of photo identification.
We would like to keep our fees as low as possible. You can help by paying for services, including co-pays and deductibles, at the time of your visit.
As a service to our patients, Ophthalmology Associates’ billing department will file surgical and diagnostic insurance claims. For visits and surgery, we accept cash, check, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. If you have a question about financial policies or are experiencing a financial hardship, we are happy to discuss it with you.
Flexible Spending Account
If you participate in a flexible health care spending program through your employer, you can use your dollars at Ophthalmology Associates for your eye exam. Contacts, frames, and prescription glasses/sunglasses are often also eligible for flex spending dollars. LASIK and other refractive, cosmetic and elective surgery procedures can be financed in this manner as well.
The staff of Ophthalmology Associates of San Antonio is experienced in working with most insurance companies. Please contact your insurance provider to check your benefits before scheduling or you may contact our office to find out if your insurance is accepted in our practice.
