Offering Vision Care Financing
Vision care is a necessary part of life for many people, but the cost of procedures and products can often be prohibitive. Luckily, there are ways you can help make your services more accessible and affordable. Offering financing to your patients is worth considering as both a healthcare professional and a business owner. There are multiple ways to do this, so it is important to choose the best option for your practice. We will cover some background on vision care and financing in order to help you make this decision.
What is a vision loan?
A vision loan is a type of financing that can be used to cover the cost of vision care, including procedures and products. This type of loan may be an option for patients who cannot pay for their vision care out-of-pocket or who do not have insurance coverage. Vision loans typically have low interest rates and flexible repayment terms, making them an affordable option for many patients.

Why should I offer vision financing at my practice?
There are many benefits to offering financing to your patients. To name a few:
- Grow your client base. Offering loans can help you attract new patients who may not have been able to afford your services otherwise.
- Increase customer satisfaction. By offering financing, you can make it easier for your patients to get the treatment they need.
- Improve cash flow. Offering loans can help improve your business’s cash flow by providing you with payment upfront.
- Provide more expensive services. By offering alternative payment methods, your patients will be able to afford higher priced eye care and procedures.
Why might a patient need to finance vision care?
There are several reasons why a patient might need to finance vision care. In some cases, vision care is not covered by insurance, either because it is considered an elective procedure or because the patient has reached their maximum out-of-pocket spending limit. In other cases, the patient may not have enough money saved to cover the cost of vision care. Financing can help patients pay for vision care when they otherwise might not be able to afford it.
Other Payment Options
In addition to loans, there are other financing options available to patients. Some of these include:
- Using a line of credit
- Credit Cards
Based on your patient’s unique financial situation, they should choose the payment method that works best for them. By offering healthcare financing as an option, you can give your clients another means of affording their eye care.
Offering Vision Loans to Patients FAQ
What are the most popular vision financing methods?
There are a few different ways to finance elective vision treatments. Some people choose to pay for treatments out-of-pocket and others take out loans, or use credit cards. A growing number of people are also using vision insurance plans and health savings accounts (HSAs) to cover the cost of their treatments.
If my patient needs vision financing, will it impact their credit?
It depends on the lender. Some lenders will report a patient’s borrowing activity to credit agencies while others will not. It’s best to ask the lender directly about their reporting policy when choosing the best loan provider to partner with.
What is the typical time frame in which a patient can get approved for a vision loan?
The best vision loan providers can offer near-instant approvals, to get your patient the money they need quickly. However, the exact amount of time it takes to get approved depends on the loan provider and other factors related to your patient’s credit standing.
What advantages does vision financing offer my patients?
Vision financing offers several benefits to patients. Financing may be a great option for helping people afford eye surgery who can’t pay out of pocket right away because it allows for long term repayment plans. For patients who can afford it, financing helps to keep more money in their pocket with no early payment penalties and low interest rates. Being able to finance now may help patients get procedures they need sooner and more affordably.
