Vision Clinic

At Cougar Health Services, we know that vision is an important part of your overall health. Taking care of your vision can not only help you see clearly now – it can also help prevent problems down the road.  

Our vision clinic can conduct routine eye exams, treat eye conditions, and help you with eye emergencies. We can also help you find the right glasses and contacts for you.  

So whether you’re experiencing vision issues or just want a new pair of glasses, you can find what you need to take care of your vision right on campus.

  • How does billing work?

    As a specialty clinic, our billing and costs sometimes differ from the Medical Clinic. There’s a charge for office visits and we collect payment at the time of your visit. 

    If you have an insurance plan with vision benefits, we can bill your insurance. We can help you find out what your individual coverage and costs will be and assist you with any necessary paperwork. Contact the billing department for details. 

    For medical services and retail purchases, we accept Visa, MasterCard, check, cash or ApplePay. 

  • What if I have an after-hours eye emergency?

    Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

  • Will I have my eyes dilated?

    Dilation is an important part of a complete eye exam. Although not every appointment requires dilation, it is best to be prepared that you may need to have your eyes dilated at your appointment. The dilation will make reading things up close difficult and make lights brighter than usual.  This will last for 4-6 hours, although it can last longer in some people.

    Most people will be able to drive short distances once their eyes are dilated as long as they have sunglasses (which we can provide if you don’t have any). However, if you feel uncomfortable driving, or have never driven with your eyes dilated, it may be best to have a driver. 

  • I’m not sure if I need vision correction. What should I do?

    Contact the Vision Clinic at 509-335-0360 or cougarhealth.visionclinic@wsu.edu and we will help you schedule an appointment.
