About Your Visit
Your Eye Care Visit
Welcome to Zusman Eye Care Center! The entire staff is delighted to have you as a patient. Your initial visit may take 1-2 hours, depending on which tests or procedures will be performed. Dilation of your eyes will probably be necessary for the examination. Therefore, it’s a good idea NOT to plan on driving immediately after the appointment.
Since your eyes may be sensitive to light, please plan on bringing your dark glasses, or the staff will gladly provide you with a disposable sunshield to wear when you leave.
Zusman Eye Care Center is a Medicare Participating facility. The center is also a provider for several other commercial insurances. Prior to your visit, please inquire about your insurance plan.
As a courtesy, the professional staff will file your insurance claim for your visit, even if Zusman Eye Care Center does not participate in the plan. All deductibles, co-payments, and non-participating insurance plan fees are due at the time of service. The office accepts cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

- Age 20-29: At least once during this period
- Age 30-39: At least twice during this period
- Age 40: Comprehensive ophthalmic exam for all adults- future frequency of exams determined from this exam
- Age 65 and over: Every one to two years
