Unlock Your Eye Care Freedom:
Why We Opt Out of Vision Plans and Insurances

Here at Family Eye Wellness, we believe that no one should own the market on your vision.

Vision plans often function more like 'discount programs,' that solicit their own products rather than promoting the best quality products on the market. At Family Eye Wellness, Dr. Patel has chosen independence, free to curate her inventory with high-quality, independent frame lines at affordable prices, supporting local businesses.

Independence allows us to prioritize patient care, avoiding the rushed 15-minute visits common in participating provider models. While some patients may find our non-participation in insurance networks unconventional, it enables us to deliver thorough, expert care.

Good news: Regardless of whether you have or don't have vision plans/insurance, you are welcome at Family Eye Wellness. We're an open-access provider, ensuring the highest standards of care and quality products, even if it means using your out-of-network benefits. We will fill out all the paperwork for you and provide you with an itemized receipt so that your insurance can send a check directly to your home!

At Family Eye Wellness, we take pride in delivering outstanding service, ensuring superior quality, and maintaining a commitment to honest and transparent pricing. Quality care is non-negotiable for us. If you value the freedom of a different, superior experience, give us a call. Your vision deserves the best, and we're here to provide it. - Contact Us

what we offerfeatured services

To ensure optimum eye health and vision, Family Eye Wellness is very proud to offer the following services:

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, vision issues often go undetected since most eye disorders don't have clear symptoms.

Contact Lens Exams

If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, it can seem a bit intimidating. After all, you’re inserting something into your eye! Let’s ease your mind about the first step – your contact lens exam.

Pediatric Eye Care

Did you know that 70% of a child’s learning is done through their vision? It is recommended that all children have their first comprehensive eye exam with an eye care provider before turning one year old. If this exam is normal, the next eye exam is performed at 3 years old followed by 5 years old, and then annually thereafter.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is a treatment plan that is intended to develop and improve a patient’s visual skills and abilities, with the goal of making their day-to-day life easier. 

Functional Vision Evaluation

We go beyond the routine comprehensive eye exam – we provide specialty exams known as functional or binocular vision evaluations. 

Visual Processing Evaluation

More than 70% of a child’s learning is done through their visual system. Studies show that 1 out of every 4 children have a vision problem that impacts learning. 

Myopia Management

Myopia is a very common issue throughout the world. Approximately 1/3 of the population in the United States have the condition and over 90% of several East Asian countries suffer from myopia. 


"Syntonics," derived from the word syntony (meaning to bring into balance), refers to achieving a balanced, integrated nervous system.
