New Patient / Your First Visit

Welcome to VisionCare Associates. As Lansing Michigan’s trusted eye care partners since 1981, we are dedicated to providing a lifetime of excellent vision care for you and your family.

We offer the latest in eyewear, lens technology, and contact lenses. Our expertise includes tailoring the right eyewear no matter what you like doing. Whether you are working, active and enjoy biking, golfing, cooking or playing cards, we tailor the right eyewear for your needs. Our selection is wide and includes traditional frames, sunglasses, safety glasses, children’s glasses and more.

What to Bring to Your Appointment

  • Photo ID
  • Insurance Cards
  • List of your current medications
  • Insurance copay and/or out of pocket fees; these are due in full at the time of service

Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment time.

For patients under 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present at the initial visit. A waiver may be signed for future visits. Most appointments will take approximately 1 hour. Allow yourself extra time to pick out new eyewear.

Your eyes will be dilated for complete exams, retinal exams, and laser vision evaluations. Dilation will make you sensitive to light, and makes it difficult to see up close. You can bring your own sunglasses, or we will provide you with a temporary pair.

Rescheduling Appointments

Please give 48-hour notice if you are unable to keep your appointment. Failure to do so may result in a $35.00 fee. Patients arriving more than 15 minutes after their appointment time may need to be rescheduled.


VisionCare Associates participates with most medical and vision insurance plans. Learn more about Insurance and Billing.
