Consider These Options

Dr. Emmert-Buck knows we all have different ways of figuring out how to pay for the things that will make our lives better. Because of that, she accepts both CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit. Also, she can split up your payment among different credit cards (so you can get cash back or airline miles or hotel points! Or whatever you’re saving up for!). She also accepts HSA and FSA funds.

 

You Are Worth It

Imagine waking up and being able to see right away. Imagine being able to play sports without specialized glasses or goggles. Imagine being able to do everything without having to stop and think, “Did I remember my glasses/contacts?” The right eye surgery can change your life. And you deserve it.
