Back to school eye exams

State law requires all Wisconsin schools to request children have a comprehensive eye exam from an optometrist or ophthalmologist before starting kindergarten. 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 are at a higher risk of vision loss and some eye diseases. Comprehensive 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.

  • Using insurance

    for an eye exam

Wisconsin Vision in Milwaukee accepts most vision plans including VSP. Your vision insurance covers routine eye exams and may pay for part of your eyeglasses or contact lenses if needed. Flexible spending accounts can be used to pay for eye exams and eyewear.

If you have a medical condition affecting your eye health (such as pink eye, glaucoma, or macular degeneration) your medical insurance may also be billed. We’re happy to do an insurance check and explain your benefits.

You can also use CareCredit for eye exams and eyewear at all Wisconsin vision locations, with interest-free financing for up to a year.
