Risk Optometric Associates: Eye Exams in Fayetteville NC and Beyond
Risk Optometric doctors have been with the company for many years, unlike many chain locations where staffing turnover issues cause you to have a bad experience. In fact, most of our eye doctors have been with the company for over a decade. We have been in business for over 20 years and have provided eye exams and eye care to over a hundred thousand patients. We are truly a family business and problems or concerns you may have are not delegated to Walmart corporate headquarters. We are the same people who answer the phones, provide your eye exam, file your insurance, and provide you with follow-up care. When you call, you know us and we know you. It's the personal touch we offer with our eye exams in Fayetteville, Hendersonville, Ft. Bragg, Jacksonville, & Aberdeen, NC.
We stagger our eye exams in Fayetteville, Hendersonville, Jacksonville, and Ft. Bragg, NC. Many commercial chains will double book patients or put time limits on the exam to less than 10 minutes. But Risk Optometric Associates allow up to an hour for each patient visit. Last year our average wait time to see the doctor was less than 5 minutes. We are here for you, not the other way around. The added time we allow for each patient ensures the doctor has time to thoroughly evaluate your ocular health and, if applicable, give you an optimal prescription for your eyewear.
If you do require glasses or contacts, you can fill your prescription on-line or wherever you choose. We position our offices inside Walmart for the convenience of our patients. Walmart eyeglasses have a one year warranty so, should you decide to take advantage of the nearby dispensary, you know you are not getting cheap glasses, even though Walmart offers great discounts on eyeglasses.
If you are looking for an affordable eye exam in Fayetteville or the surrounding area, which offers comprehensive evaluation of your ocular heath, Risk Optometric offers two types of eye exams to meet your budget without compromising your visual needs. Some people have visual needs that require extensive examination of the eyes, while others have more stable vision and are low risk for developing eye disease. Wouldn't it be nice to pick what type of exam you receive? Discounted intermediate exams can fulfill the needs of most young, healthy patients who do not want a cheap eye exam but, recognizing the importance of eye care, want to have an effective, affordable eye evaluation. At our eye doctor's offices throughout North Carolina, you choose your eye exam.
Many patients have vision plans and we are happy to accept them. Currently we work with Tricare, BCBS, United Healthcare, Medicare, Medicaid, Spectera, Community Eye Care, Superior Vision, EyeMed, and VSP insurance. If your insurance is not on this list, we may still be able to accept it. Please call our office for a complete list of vision insurances we accept. We cannot offer free eye exams or bundle an eye exam with glasses to make the eye exam appear free. We do not hide our fees or inflate the costs of the glasses. When you look for free eye exams you need to be cautious that you are not coerced into buying things you do not need. Doctors cannot work for free and free eye exams are offset by the doctor having to see a vast number of patients that buy glasses. There are no hidden fees here. So bring the whole family for eye exams at your nearest branch of Risk Optometric Associates

How many years does it take to be an optometrist?
Optometrists have to have at least three years of undergraduate college, but most have four years. You then have 4 years of graduate training. You then have to sit for a three part national board exam. Finally, North Carolina requires you to sit for a practical and oral exam before licensure in the state. Some optometrist go on to do a residency, if they wish to specialize in a particular area of optometry like low vision or sports medicine.
