Cook Children's Alexander Vision Center
The Alexander Vision Center eye clinic provides routine eye examinations and prescription eye glasses to children in North Central Texas who may need vision care. These services are for children whose families meet the 150% federal poverty level and are not covered by Medicaid or private insurance for eye care services. These routine ophthalmological examinations and prescription eye glasses are provided at no cost to the families.
Cook Children's Virtual Health services can bring outpatient specialty care closer to home, connect you to your pediatrician after hours, help a new mom with lactation concerns or questions, and even make it possible for your child to see a pediatrician during a visit to the school nurse.
"Each care provider took the time to explain things not only to us, but especially our child, which I was delighted to see."
