The same law also requires optometrists and doctors to work to reduce or waive the cost of childhood eye exams for parents who might have difficulty paying.
Eye exams for seniors
Older adults have an increased risk of vision loss and some eye diseases. Routine eye exams help detect problems early so they can be treated sooner. Our optometrists provide affordable eye exams for seniors and take Medicare Part B for vision care.

Eye Exam Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during a standard eye exam at Wisconsin Vision?

Contact our Janesville store today for specific details on pricing for our standard eye exams.
Are walk-ins accepted at the Janesville location?
Our store only takes walk-in patients depending on the availability around scheduled appointments. We recommend making an appointment online to ensure you see an eye doctor the same day you come into the store.
What will I be asked to provide for my child at their first kid’s eye exam?
The eye doctor will ask you about your child’s medical history before the start of their first exam. You will need to provide information including allergies, family medical history and any medications or medical conditions your child has. If your child wears contacts or glasses, be sure to bring them with you to the exam.
What age should a child get their first kid’s eye exam?
The American Optometric Association suggests that an infant’s first eye exam should be at 6 months old. At Wisconson Vision locations, we only accept patients over the age of 3, but we can refer you to a pediatric ophthalmologist if you’re child is under that age.
