I Matter Featured Partner: Advanced Eye Care

Advanced eye Care Logo

To start this New Year off right, it’s important to take the time to make all of your annual appointments. Maybe you’ve seen the same doctor for 20 years, or maybe you’re in the market for a new one. If you’re looking for eye care, their name says it all, Advanced Eye Care can help you with anything eye-related, from your annual screening to treating your dry eyes and so much in between!

Special Discount

For the month of February, Advanced Eye Care is offering an optical special – 15% off any pair of frames! Plus, with your I Matter card, you can receive an additional 5% discount on your optical purchase. You can’t pass up a deal like this!

Coverage for When You Need It

Don’t have Vision Insurance? Have no fear! VSP is now offering individual plans – that means an individual can purchase their own insurance for as little as $14 a month, and that insurance can be used in both the clinic and optical shop at Advanced Eye Care. VSP is also offering an additional $40 credit for all newly insured persons.

One of First in the Region to Offer New Dry Eye Treatment

Advanced Eye Care proudly presents the new dry eye treatment called Tear Care™. With Tear Care™, we can now remove gland obstructions and restore the natural outflow system of your own glands to reduce your dependence on artificial tears and improve your day-to-day comfort and vision. Tear Care™ is the only device on the market that allows for efficient, targeted dry eye treatment, which is especially important in today’s digital lifestyle.

Will the Tear Care™ Procedure Have a Lengthy Down-Time?

The procedure is clinically proven effective for nine to twelve months and is performed in office in about 30 minutes. You can resume your day-to-day activities immediately! The treatment does require an out-of-pocket cost, but also does qualify for HSA or FSA funding.
