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.
“I had iLASIK with Dr. Hebson. My experience was one-of-a-kind. The staff made me feel really comfortable. I woke up the next day after my procedure and I opened the window and was able to see my neighbor’s plants for the first time without glasses or contacts.”
“It has been just one week after my second surgery for cataracts and I can’t go without posting what a great experience its been. I go for my annual check-ups to Dr. McClintock annually. He is excellent. When I was told I needed to have Cataract Surgery I was quite anxious. Dr. Bearman put me at ease and did the surgery. He is great. Its unbelievable how well I can see. The staff at Vision First Eye Center are very professional. You feel very important as if you are their only patient. Thank you Dr. McClintock, Dr. Bearman and staff. You are all awesome. Thank you.”
“Dr. Doss is very friendly and professional as well as the rest of the staff that I have dealt with…all the techs are awesome.. and after there was a problem with my insurance providers I can’t say enough good things about Judy (front desk) and Lauren ( optician )…they worked so hard to get that mess straightened out for me..I have no reason to go anywhere other than vision first in Trussville.”
“Dr. Doss is simply the best with pediatric eye exams. Kids love her!”
“After having cataract surgery with Dr. Bearman, everything has been great! He is really good at what he does.”
“After using Vision First for many years for prescriptions and glasses, I recently used Vision First and Shelby Ambulatory Center with Dr. Bearman for cataract surgery. Result is great clear vision with mixed multifocal lenses perfect for my presbyopia. The experience was customized for my needs and definitely not an ‘in the box’ solution. The staff at Vision First, from checking in at the desk, seeing the staff who do the work ups, thro’ Dr. Bearman’s careful assessment of desired outcomes to Carol who schedules the surgery…all are knowledgeable members of a cohesive team. I am amazed at the way they trust and respect one another. Makes this such a great place for a patient to be in their care. Thank you to each member of the team. Finally, this: Sunrise and sunset are more beautiful than I’ve ever experienced. Glasses at 6 years of age replaced with these new lenses at 66…and I am not wearing glasses to write or post this two days after second surgery. Better than I ever hoped to achieve!”
“Great doctor and staff. They made me feel very much at ease.”
“My 8 y.o. son and I both saw Dr. Clark [Cleghern] in the Pell City office. Wait time for appt., was 2 days. Everyone in the office from front desk to Dr. Clark, amazingly friendly and very helpful.”
“My husband and I are very pleased after our visit to Dr. Clark [Clehern] in the Pell City office. She and her staff were very professional and friendly. I always need help picking out new frames and the lady that ordered them was extremely helpful and very patient with me as I probably tried on every pair in the office.”
“The perfect combination of efficiency, expertise, and caring!”
