Do you accept private insurance for your services?

Many of our current patients have private insurance coverage through their employer or have purchased it on their own. The amount of coverage will vary based on the specific plan. In most cases our patients pay us directly for services and will be provided with an official receipt to provide for insurance.

How long does an eye exam take?

Majority of our eye exams range anywhere from 25 to 30 minutes. The examination will consist of some preliminary work completed by the doctors assistant followed by a personal consultation with the doctor.

Can my glasses be customized?

Yes! We offer a variety of customization options to help you craft the perfect pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses. Choose from a wide range of fashionable designer frames & lenses to create your own unique pair. In most cases we can complete your customization on-site while you wait.

Can I get progressive contact lenses?

Yes! If your eyeglasses currently require progressive lenses, you may also be able to get progressive contacts. Speak to your Barkley Optician during your next visit for more information.
