Optical

Our Optical Departments provide our patients with ophthalmology and optometry services that include a special diabetic protocol. The Cattaraugus site offers eye exam availability Tuesday-Fridays with hours of operation from 8:00am-4:30pm Mon.-Friday. Any procedures not offered on site, are made available through a referral system to Ophthalmology Professionals who will take care of our patients needs.

Our Opticals offer a wide variety of eyeglass frames to choose from ranging from "free" and higher with copayment. Some of the frame lines offered consists of Oakley, Jessica McClintock, BCBG Maxazria, Ellen Tracy, Cole Haan, Izod, OP, Junction City and Koodles. Our Cattaraugus site also stocks Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Rayban by Luxottica Frame Group. Both sites carry basic lenses offered at no cost to the patient, as well as all of the popular "add on's" that people demand in the high tech world we live in. These "add on's", such as Transitions, Progressives, Thin & Lite materials, Polaroid filters, mirror coatings, anti reflective coatings, uv filters, and tinting are available with co-payment.

Our method of payment range from cash, debit cards, MasterCard and visa, and is required before ordering can take place, with glasses arriving in the clinics from 7-14 days.

Currently contact lenses are available at the Cattaraugus site only and are below retail costs as compared to businesses off the reservation.

We promote Annual Eye Exams, so please give us a call and schedule your appointment today.
