There has never been nor will there ever be that terrifying instrument that blows a hurricane straight into your brain. No one likes getting the puff test, and we don’t like it either! Pressure is measured by other, non-terrifying methods, most patients don’t even know we have completed the test.
We have taken the confusion out of the discussion for self-pay patients when it comes time to pay the bill. All Inclusive packages with a set, standard costs empower our patients to be prepared for what they will spend. Dr. Hicks and Annie carefully designed these packages based on what will give them the best vision while spending only what is comfortable for their budget. Packages start at $100 for frames and single vision lenses, which include warranties for manufacture’s defects and thin, light lenses.

Yearly exam completed! The staff is friendly, efficient, respectful and very professional! Dr. Hicks is very professional and holistic. He provided education with his diagnosis and also preventive care. Vision is a primary function that should be taken care of before, during and post visual issues. Highly recommend SeePort Optometry and I look forward to my next visit!
