We would like to take this moment to remind you that we not only examine eyes for glasses and contact lenses, we also provide assessment and care for eye injuries, eye infections or eye pain and irritation. We encourage you to choose SeePort for any of these issues not only to receive the most specialized care for the eyes, but also to decrease the burden of patient volume in Emergency Rooms, primary care doctors and urgent care centers. These types of visits are billable to your medical health insurance. See below for accepted insurances.
Dr. Hicks is able to video chat with you (telemedicine) and/or triage your case over the phone if you prefer. Please call the office and the staff will schedule a time. This is only for medical eye care, nothing routine.
If you are currently under the care of Dr. Hicks for Glaucoma, Dry Eye or other ocular medical conditions and are in need of medication refills, please contact the office and we will assess if Dr. Hicks can authorize additional medications. Please do not contact us if you just want to get ahead and order early. The pharmacies are overwhelmed right now and we do not want to add to the chaos with unneeded prescriptions.
