How Does CareCredit Work in Optometry?

In our office, CareCredit can be incredibly useful for patients seeking to finance their eyeglasses, contact lenses, or myopia treatment/vision therapy programs. Here’s how it works:

  1. Coverage for Eyeglasses: CareCredit can be used to pay for prescription eyeglasses, including frames and lenses. Patients can select the eyewear that meets their needs and budget, and then use CareCredit to spread out the cost over time.
  2. Financing Contact Lenses: Contact lenses, especially specialty or corrective lenses, can be a significant expense for some patients. CareCredit provides an accessible way to finance these purchases, offering flexible repayment options that suit individual financial situations.
  3. Myopia Treatment Programs: With the rising prevalence of myopia (nearsightedness) globally, optometry practices are increasingly offering myopia control programs to manage the condition in kids. These programs may include specialized lenses, orthokeratology, or pharmacological interventions. CareCredit can help families afford these treatment programs by spreading the cost over manageable monthly payments.

Benefits of CareCredit for Optometry Patients:

  • Flexible: Patients can choose from various repayment plans, including interest-free options for shorter terms or low-interest financing for longer periods.
  • Instant access: CareCredit provides instant approval decisions, allowing patients to proceed with their eyewear or treatment without delay.
  • No Upfront Costs: Patients can receive the care they need without worrying about upfront payments, making high-quality optometry services more accessible.
  • Budget-Friendly: Inflation is a killer! By breaking down larger expenses into smaller, more manageable payments, CareCredit helps patients budget effectively for their optometry needs.


CareCredit presents a valuable solution for both optometry practices and patients seeking to manage the costs associated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, and myopia treatment programs. By offering flexible payment options and eliminating financial barriers to care, Tacoma Eye and CareCredit helps ensure that everyone has access to the affordable care they need.
