MEDICAL CONDITIONS & DISORDERS

Board Certified, Compassionate Care

Specialized Ophthalmic Care

The eyes are an exceptionally important area of the body, requiring extra care and consideration to manipulate the intricate intersection of nerves, muscles, bones, cartilage, and tissues.

At E&FPS our physicians utilize their extensive ophthalmology, plastic & reconstructive surgery training and highly specialized knowledge of facial anatomy to diagnose and treat conditions and traumas involving this very delicate area.

Is my condition covered by insurance?

E&FPS accepts most major insurances as well as private pay patients to treat the conditions listed above. Although insurance coverage is not a guarantee when treating these issues medically, our office makes every effort to communicate with your insurance throughout the treatment process in order best help you understand your medical coverage.

If our office is not able to accept your insurance, private pay options are available.

 

Are the bags under my eyes covered by my insurance?

A Lower Lid Blepharoplasty for puffy lower lids (more commonly referred to as "bags") is never covered by insurance. It is considered a cosmetic procedure by every insurance company. 

Our office provides options for patients wanting to add cosmetic procedures to their medical procedures. Although it is dependent on the concerns being treated, very often medical and cosmetic procedures can be done at the same time.
