Q: Is it necessary that I make an appointment in order to come in for a comprehensive eye examination?

Usually, you can make appointments a day or 2 in advance, but if you need to be seen that day, then we will be able to see you on a walk-in basis.

Q: What if I need to cancel my appointment?

A: We understand that things can and do come up. All that we ask is that any cancellations are made within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment. We are perfectly willing to reschedule your appointment to a time that may be more convenient for you and your family.

In the likelihood that you are prompted to leave your contact information during normal business hours, that’s because we are currently on the phones with other customers. We will be sure to give you a call back as soon as possible. If you so prefer, you can also e-mail us at

Q: How are phone calls handled during the day?

Vision Insurance

Q: Does Couture Optical accept vision insurance plans?

A: At Couture Optical, we make sure that you receive all the insurance benefits that you are entitled to. We accept most forms of insurance. You can find out which plans we accept at the bottom of this page or by contacting our store.

Q: What is the difference between medical and routine?

A: At Couture Optical, we accept most medical insurance and most vision insurance plans. We will make every attempt to bill your visit with a medical diagnosis (e.g. Strabismus, amblyopia, blurred vision). If you are diagnosed with conditions such as myopia and/or astigmatism, then the visit will be considered as routine and will NOT fall under your medical coding.
