November 2020

Unfortunately, Downtown Eye Care in Capital Square has had to close due to Covid-19 related financial issues.  Dr. Barbara E. Evans is now practicing at Physicians Eye Clinic, 2101 Westown Pkwy, West Des Moines, IA 50265.  There is convenient parking in the adjacent parking lot.  Call 515-225-2566 to schedule an appointment with me.

I hope you will continue to trust me with your eye care.

I will continue to be a provider under all medical insurances that I currently accept. However, I will not be able to bill vision insurance plans like VSP, EyeMed, Avesis, and Superior vision because Physicians Eye Clinic does not accept any vision insurances. Many people have eye exams covered through their medical insurance, especially if there are medical conditions like diabetes present. Also, all medical eye conditions like red eyes, cataracts, dry eyes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are always billed through your medical insurance as I have done in the past.

If you have vision insurance coverage for your glasses and contact lenses, I can file your exam under your medical insurance, and you may buy your glasses or contacts from an optical shop that accepts your vision plan. You do not need to have your eye exam performed by a vision insurance provider in order to have your glasses and contact lenses paid for by your vision plan. I will give you your contacts and glasses prescriptions after your exam and you may have them filled anywhere you choose.

Your medical records will be staying with me. I will be happy to forward your medical records to the provider of your choice if you decide to transfer to another doctor. A Release of Information form is downloadable by clicking the link below.  Please mail your records release form to the above address or fax it to 515-225-2425 at Physicians Eye Clinic.  If possible, please include the email address of the doctor requesting the records.

I greatly appreciate the trust you have placed in me for your eye care. I hope to see you soon at my new location!


Barbara E. Evans, M.D.
