Inventory

Our philosophy is to provide the optimal lens for each given patient. A continually increasing number of options in contact lens are available, thereby allowing greater success in achieving a successful outcome. Our contact lens laboratory maintains a large inventory of diagnostic contact lenses, including the majority of manufacturers, which facilitates and expedites the fitting process.

Payment for lenses

We participate in a variety of vision insurance plans which can help to defray the cost of contact lenses. Please check with your insurance carrier to see if Korb & Associates is a participating provider. The costs of medically necessary lenses, which require multiple fitting visits and custom lens designs, may or may not be a covered by medical or vision insurance plans. For these situations, we suggest that you check with your insurance company regarding their policies prior to your appointment. Our staff will work with patients to help navigate the complex insurance landscape to optimize coverage for services and materials.  Alana Baker is our contact lens service co-ordinator and is available to answer any questions.
