I need an eye exam and have no insurance. Where can I go?
I just got my exam and glasses at America's Best. I wound up getting two pairs (one distance and one reading) but one wasn't covered by insurance. The second pair cost me about $85. They have a promotion where they include the eye exam if you buy glasses there.
You could also try Costco for price comparison. They always have great deals on everything so I imagine that eyeglasses are no exception. I would have gone there but they don't accept my insurance.
And my last suggestion is to see if a local college runs a clinic for student training. Pacific University has one nearby and friends report that they do an excellent job for affordable prices.
If you dont have Medicaid you can still contact several organizations. Visit this website www.allaboutvision.com/
