Paul Vision Institute


I just recently had my annual eye exam with Dr. Paul. Great facility, cutting edge equipment, great staff and as always Dr. Paul was at the top of his game. I have recommended many patients to him and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Paul and staff for the great service you provide to our community.
My spouse and I recently visited the office for our check-ups. Not only is Dr. Paul always kind and so knowledgeable in his dealings with US, he had a wonderful intern working with him who found a small hemorrhage in my husband's eye during her preliminary exam! I was very impressed with her professionalism and skill also! Dr. Paul only allows the BEST to aid in the care of his patients!! Thank you, Spencer!! And ❤ Happy Valentine's Day ❤ to the staff of Paul Vision Institute!
Connie Flinchum. This is the eye Dr. I was telling you about.

A bioptic telescope is intended to those with be a
safer driver on the road—to avoid obstacles, see
traffic, signals, signs and pedestrians. It will allow you to see further up the road which will give you more time to make the proper driving adjustments to keep you and others safe.

They are used in a similar fashion as the car’s mirrors and only
for brief periods of time. One does not look through the telescope all the time while driving— studies show they are only used about 1-2% of the time.
Obtaining a bioptic will not automatically make you eligible for a special driver’s license. To pursue a bioptic driving license you really need to visit a low vision expert in your state to ‘hold your
hand’ through the process. Read more about bioptic driving at:

Our practice began with a focus on low vision rehabilitation and ocular disease. Low vision is a loss of eyesight that cannot be sufficiently improved with conventional glasses, contact lenses, or medical and surgical interventions. Ocular disease can include a variety of different eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Our optometrists can help with these and many other concerns. Early testing is essential, particularly when it comes to conditions with a genetic component such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a great option for vision correction; it is a non-invasive, non-surgical process to reshape the cornea while sleeping. Ortho-K utilizes specially designed therapeutic contact lenses that gently and temporarily reshape the cornea while you sleep. Due to their high oxygen permeability, these contact lenses have been proven to be safe and effective for patients of all ages, including children. Ortho-K has also been shown to significantly slow the rate of progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. Visit our website to learn more about the services we offer, including Ortho-K.

Accepted Insurance

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
