Hudson Optical does direct billing!

What is direct billing?

With direct billing, your insurance company pays us directly when you purchase prescription eyewear, prescription sunglasses, and/or contact lenses. That way you don't need to apply for reimbursement after you have purchased.

Ask our staff how direct billing can make purchasing eyewear easier, and reduce what you pay out of pocket!


In addition, we also allow Preferred Vision and Hearing Service (PVS).
If you are a participant, you can use your vision benefits or discounts. 


Note: amount covered through direct billing is limited by insurance coverage.




For more information please call us at 778-433-7789.
