Virtual Visits

Cleveland Clinic’s Cole Eye Institute offers virtual visit appointments for some eye conditions, allowing you to meet with a specialist from the comfort of your home, using a mobile device, tablet, computer or web-enabled device.

Why go virtual? It's an easy, convenient and secure way to see your provider face-to-face without having to leave home. This saves you travel time and time spent in the waiting room — and you can also have a loved one or caregiver join you. If appropriate, you can also get a prescription sent to the pharmacy of your choice.

Not all eye services can be done virtually. Appointments that involve a closer look at your eye will still need to be in person.

Many insurance companies cover the cost of virtual visits, so check with your insurance company ahead of time. Interested in getting started? Call your provider to find out what virtual visit options are available.

Virtual Second Opinions

When you would like a second opinion before making a decision about your medical care, Cleveland Clinic’s Virtual Second Opinions can help. It’s easy to get answers to your questions and the peace of mind you deserve from a Cleveland Clinic provider — all without leaving home.

What to Bring to Your Appointment

Once you’ve made your appointment, there are a few things you’ll want to make sure you don’t leave home without. Please bring your:

  • Insurance information.
  • Glasses or contact lenses.
  • Sunglasses.
  • Medications.
  • List of any allergies or conditions you have.
  • Previous eye records if they’re available.

Retail Optical Shops

When you’re ready to pick out your new glasses, we’re ready to help you find the perfect pair. Our retail optical shops offer everything from budget-friendly frames to designer glasses.
