The practice prides itself by accepting discounted insurance plans that are available to individuals that are disadvantaged or have disabilities. We feel these individuals need and should have access to quality eye health care.  We do this as a public service to the community to those that are less fortunate.  This includes the local Lion's Clubs, The Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities (VESID), Medicaid and other child health plus and family medical plans.  All patients are treated equally regardless of their insurance coverage or their ability to pay.

For the past ten years, Roberts Eyecare has had the opportunity for high school and college students desiring to enter the Optometric field, work as paid interns to enhance their knowledge of optometry prior to optometry school.  The doctors and staff relish the opportunity to educate tomorrow's optometric physicians and leaders and to install the passion for quality and compassionate patient care.
