Optometrist Office in Bellefonte

About S. Candace Covey, O.D.

Dr. S. Candace Covey and her friendly staff are dedicated to serving the Bellefonte community and its surrounding neighborhoods with all of their vision needs. When you walk through our doors, you will be greeted by a compassionate and experienced team that is dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized eye care for the whole family in a friendly and professional environment. Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations by providing friendly service and quality products at affordable prices.

We conduct comprehensive exams which allow us to accurately detect eye disease or other abnormalities early, often before they present any symptoms. We also carry a wide selection of designer frames and sunglasses in our optical shop in order to fulfill the individual needs of each of our patients. Our mission is to provide our patients with optimal eye care to insure the health of their eyes and the quality of their vision.


We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards, as well as cash and checks. We make every effort to keep down the cost of your optometric care. You can help by paying at the time of your visit. To place an order for eyewear, a deposit of half the cost of the glasses or contacts is required. The balance is payable in full when glasses or contacts are taken home.


We accept many major insurance plans, including Geisinger, Health America, Highmark, Medicare, Vision Benefits of America, and EyeMed. To find out if we accept your plan, please call our office. If you plan to submit a claim to your insurance company, please ask for a superreceipt. The superreceipt form contains all the information needed from the doctor for your insurance company to process your claim. No insurance company attempts to cover all optometric costs. Some companies pay a percentage of the charge and others pay fixed allowances for certain procedures. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any other balance not paid by your insurance company. We will be happy to help you receive the benefits to which you are entitled, however, please remember that your agreement is a contract between you and the insurance company.
