New Patient Paperwork!

Planning your visit

We request updated vision plan and medical insurance information 48 hours prior to your appointment. Prior to your visit and as a courtesy to our patients, our team will verify your medical insurance and/or vision plan information, as provided to us.

Although we may choose to wait for your insurance company to pay their portion of your fees, you are ultimately responsible for any remaining balance. We strive to answer the following questions in order to maximize your vision benefits for eye health screenings and eyewear prescribed by your doctor:

  • What kind of vision plan or medical insurance benefits do you have?
  • How much is your annual deductible and has it been met?
  • What vision services are covered by your medical insurance or vision plan?
  • What is the allowable reimbursement for each service we provide?
  • What materials savings are available?

Please provide at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. There will be a $50 fee for cancellations, reschedules or no-shows when notification has not been given more than 24 hours in advance. Thank you for your understanding.

Note: If insurance information is not communicated correctly 24 hours prior to your appointment, we will be happy to provide you with a statement of charges for you to submit to your insurance company. Requests to process insurance claims post original date of service will be subject to a reprocessing fee.

We look forward to hearing from you.

  • "When others had failed, Dr. Golson understood “When I first visited Envision, I was skeptical that Dr. Golson would be able to help with my special circumstances. When others had failed, Dr. Golson understood and was very patient working with me to get my prescriptions correct. The staff is exceptional and greets me by name each time I visit their office. I strongly recommend Envision to fill all your needs for eyecare. And they have awesome frames! Thanks guys and gals at Envision.”"

Dr. Golson did a very thorough eye exam and was able to allay any fears I had about my visual health. In addition, I felt no pressure to purchase glasses at their facility. If service and genuine concern for your best interests are of value to you I recommend Dr. Golson and his staff at Envision Eye Care!”"
