Our commitment to continual improvement goes beyond our eye care. We’re also improving your patient experience. Our offices are committed to honoring your appointment time, but we need your help, too. In order for us to give you the most time with your doctor and to keep the office running on time, please try to arrive at least ten minutes before your appointment.
Our patient kiosk drastically reduces the amount of time you will spend checking in and out of appointments. Once your account is set up, you can check in and update information as needed. We recommend you arrive 15 to 20 minutes early for your first appointment in order to set up your account on the kiosk. Once your account is established, check-in and checkout will be much faster.
All of your patient forms and account information are accessible through the patient kiosk. It will have all you need to know regarding your insurance benefits and co-pay amounts.
We take most major medical insurance and vision plans; please call our office at 205-949-2020 to see if we accept your policy.
“Dr. Bearman’s a miracle man. Would recommend him to anyone.” – Cataract Surgery
“It was a semi-emergency visit – eye injury. I called late in the afternoon and explained my situation. I had to drive from Tuscaloosa but the staff waited for me to make it in town. Great service and wonderful attitude. As always, thorough exam and attention to my eye injury. The whole crew was great. Thanks to all involved.”
“In the past years, I have visited several eye care places here in town to get the right fit for myself. I am not the average guy, I love a little fashion with my bow ties but I could never find the right fit for me. I knew a place existed because I always saw the look I wanted in either GQ or Esquire Magazine. One day a friend of mine had on a nice pair of Gucci glasses, I asked and he told me about his friend who works at Vision First ( Vu Quang, Office Manager) I stopped by and visited the location in Trussville, which by the way was only minutes from my home. This place had me sold as soon as I walked in the door, the staff was very friendly, the selection was more than I could ingest and I was treated more like family rather than a customer.
I have been with Vision First for almost 10 years now, My wife and kids all are regulars and I would not hesitate to spread the word about Vision First. A1 in my book.”
“My husband and I are very pleased with all of the staff at VisionFirst Eye Center. Dr. Bearman did cataract surgery on mine and my husband’s eyes and both of us are happy with our new eye sight. We highly recommend VisionFirst Eye Center to our family and friends.”
“I chose VisionFirst because not only did they have the newest technology but they had the best doctors. One of the things I remember about my experience is that the office staff always remembered my name, even before I signed in. I wasn’t just another patient at VisionFirst. The entire staff cared about my well-being.”
“I want to thank Dr. Bearman, Dr. McClintock and all the staff and personnel at the Trussville office for my wonderful new vision. After wearing glasses for over 30 years, I’m thrilled with the results of my recent Toric lens implants and no glasses. I never imagined seeing this well again.”
“As a surgeon my vision is of the utmost importance. I would not have trusted anyone else to perform my iLASIK procedure.”
“I have been a patient of VisionFirst for a few years now. I had my cataract surgery thanks to all of you. I love the staff and their sense of humor. Thank you so much for the great care you have given me. I actually look forward to my next visit!”
“Once I made the decision to improve my vision through LASIK surgery I would have traveled anywhere to receive the best treatment possible. I found Dr. Sarah Hays as the person I felt most comfortable handling my refractive surgery needs. Dr. Hays has been practicing for 25 years and will recommend the procedure that is right for you.”
“I chose VisionFirst for my iLASIK procedure because of Dr. Sarah Hays. In 2004, Dr. Hays performed my mother’s lens replacement surgery. I was mother’s designated driver and I sat in on all the appointments and was impressed with Dr. Hays’ ability to assuage fears by providing ample information concerning the procedure. Naturally, when I decided to undergo iLASIK in July 2009 I sought out Dr. Hays. Everyone at VisionFirst was extremely helpful in answering my many questions concerning the iLasik procedure, aftercare and even insurance coverage … Thanks to VisionFirst I was re-introduced to the gift of uninhibited sight … Thank you Dr. Hays and VisionFirst for setting me free!”
