Benefits Of Direct Billing For Your Check-Up

What’s holding you back from maintaining better eye health?

Even if you enjoy 20/20 vision, getting your eyes tested on a regular basis is a good idea. Eye exams aren’t simply to see if your prescription has changed. They also test the health of your eyes and are a non-invasive check-up that can identify problems elsewhere in the body.

With direct billing/claims available at Inspired Eyes in Kelowna, eye check-ups are as convenient and easy as booking your first appointment. No insurance claim paperwork to fill out means no fuss.

Learn more about the benefits of direct billing for your Kelowna eye check-up, and contact Inspired Eyes if you have any questions. Don’t let the perceived hassle of filing a medical insurance claim hold you back from taking care of your vision.
