Insurance at
Bristol Family Eyecare

At Bristol Family Eyecare, we know full well the importance of healthy eyes, but we’re also aware of the cost — especially for families with children. Lifelong eye health is a long-term investment, but vision insurance can play a key role in keeping it affordable.

Vision insurance is separate from health insurance, either on its own or in addition to a health plan. It exists to provide you with benefits and allowances, including discounts on your annual eye exams, contact lenses, an annual new pair of glasses, or deals on lens upgrades.

Our practice accepts a number of different vision insurance plans to cover many of the costs that our patients face. Take a look:


We accept plans beyond the ones listed above, so if you don’t see your vision plan, please give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!

We also accept the following medical plans:


Frames and Lens Warranty

Bristol has your back when disaster strikes! Our robust, patient-focused warranties offer multiple important protections. All patients have 30 days to make one-time changes to their frames and lenses. Frames can also be changed for another pair or returned altogether for a 20% restocking fee. Should you lose your pair, our lost glasses replacement option offers 30% off frames and is also backed by a lens warranty.

We know kids can be hard on their glasses, which is why kids 12 and under are protected with a 12-month warranty, which offers 50% off their new frames and warranty lenses. Finally, all special lens coatings — like Prevencia, Sapphire GR, Rock, and Xperio — are protected by a scratch and lens warranty. Contact us to learn more about your coverage!

Care credit logo

CareCredit is like a credit card dedicated to healthcare costs, one of the best ways for patients to help set up payment plans and manage the cost of their care. We offer it here at Bristol because we know how important immediate care and payment flexibility are to our patients.

Questions About Vision Insurance?

People have vision insurance because they know how important their eye health is, and the allowances for routine checkups and corrective lenses play a huge role in that.

The better you understand what’s included in your vision insurance plan, the easier it is to make the most of it. Give us a call today to see how to make the best of your vision insurance benefits!

Dr. Bristol is fantastic. Professional and friendly. Takes time to explain things. Never feels rushed. I've been a patient for about 10 years now, and always a good experience. The staff is super friendly, and the huge selection of frames is great.

Highly recommend

Our family of six have been patients and fans of Dr. Bristol’s for 15+ years. I’ve been a CRT user for 14 of those years and love the freedom (without surgery.) My wife’s vision has been a moving target for the last ten years but Dan has patiently kept up. Kids are all happy with the service. Most of all we love Dan’s holistic approach screening for a number of potential health issues that can reveal themselves in the health of your eyes.

Super service -- as usual and despite to COVID-19 pandemic. It doesn't get any better than this.

- Marlo U.

Always friendly and professional. The front staff and back staff are equally fantastic! They are extremely helpful and very efficient at getting you in and out in a timely fashion. I have found them to be outstanding with follow up care (i.e. frame adjustments, etc.) as well. Overall, a great choice!

Great facility, staff and service. Dr Bristol and team are fast, friendly and knowledgeable. In my experience they are prepared with the upfront insurance plan info so that you understand your covered options throughout the process (no financial surprises ) which I appreciate . The office also has a good selection of frames on hand to roils out the process.
