Your glasses are an extension of yourself and a reflection of your personality! Poorly fitting or ugly glasses can hurt your self-esteem. This is especially true for school children. We want you to love your glasses. That's why we offer a large selection of frames. We accept Alaska Medicaid, Premera, Meritain, Aetna, AlaskaCare and many additional insurance plans both in and out-of-network.
Prism Optical visits over 100 Alaska communities every year. Unlike competitors who visit only at dividend season, we try to service every village based your needs. If you want us to come sooner, make a request on our Facebook page (click the link above and click the Follow button).
Every Alaska customer has a story of lost or broken glasses. Since Prism services areas with unique needs we specialize in Alaska Tough(TM) eyeglasses. Keep in mind that cheap glasses purchased over the Internet usually don't work for the demanding Alaska environment. That's why every single one of our frames come with a one year warranty. You can count on use for quality eyeglasses!
Prism Optical started in 1959 and has been servicing patients in Alaska for several generations. It's not uncommon for a patient in their forties to tell us they got their first pair of eyeglasses from Prism as a child. Our teams of opticians and trained optometric techs are paired with experienced optometrists to visit all 100+ villages in Alaska.
Eye care in the rural setting is about treatment and prevention. "We bring everything we need to examine the inside and the outside of the eye and to diagnose and prescribe treatments for vision problems," said James Davey, OD. Our teams can peform eye exams in nearly any facility that a village or town provides.
Prism Optical of Alaska provides optical services throughout Alaska. We are Medicaid approved providers and offer the entire frame selection completely covered by Medicaid. To request a visit to your Alaska village please call 907.885.3999 or click the Facebook button at the top.
