Is Dr Ozment an Optometrist or Opthalmologist?
Dr. Ozment is an Optometrist who is Board Certified by The Oklahoma State Board of Examiners in Optometry and The American Board of Optometry. Dr. Ozment is also Residency Trained in Ocular Disease. He is an independent Primary Health Care Provider who examines, diagnoses, treats and manages diseases and disorders of the visual system, the eye and associated structures as well as diagnose related systemic conditions.
Dr. Ozment examines the internal and external structure of the eyes to diagnose eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and retinal disorders; complications of systemic diseases such as Hypertension and Diabetes; and vision conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. Tests are also performed to determine the patient’s ability to focus and coordinate the eyes, and to judge depth and see colors accurately.
If a patient presents with a condition requiring surgical eye care, Dr. Ozment will refer his patients to the best eye specialist for treatment.
How long has Dr. Ozment been practicing?
Dr. Ozment has seen thousands of patients since 2002. In that time, he has diagnosed and had a treatment plan for patients that presented with simple complaints of vision correction to more complicated systemic diseases such as Diabetes and Brain Tumors.
Dr. Ozment is also very experience with Pediatric Eye Care and has children of his own. This is why he has equipment specialized for his littlest eyecare patients to ensure they get the right eye examination.

Do you bill my insurance? Do you take Medicare? Do you take Medicaid and SoonerCare?
Most people have a tough time understanding their insurance benefits. We accept many types of insurance and our Billing Team has years of experience, training and certification. We will authorize and explain your benefits to you BEFORE you receive care. You will understand all of your vision benefits available to you from exams and testing to your eyewear. Our goal is to make sure that we properly bill both your medical and vision care benefits to ensure that your claims are filed correctly every time.
When should I get my child’s eyes checked?
The first exam is recommended by six months of age and before three years of age. Those exams are looking for the “bad stuff” mostly. Don’t wait until your kid’s are struggling with their vision in school or sports or activities before you bring them in.
Most children do not complain about poor vision ever, because they didn’t it was bad. You have heard of “lazy-eyes” but did you know some kid’s have congenital cataracts, glaucoma (yea really), and types of cancers. Ensure your child can not only see well, but has healthy eyes.
