The staff of the Vision Clinic is committed to providing highly accessible, professional eye care for University of Georgia students and other eligible members of the university community. We provide premium comprehensive and personalized eye care services in a respectful environment using state-of-the art equipment, materials and products balanced with highly trained eye care professionals.
The Vision Clinic is located on the first floor of the University Health Center, at the corner of College Station and East Campus Road, on the University of Georgia campus. Our hours are Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm. Please call 706-542-5617 or fax 706-227-4763.
Services are available to UGA students, faculty, staff, retirees, their spouses / partners, and dependents ages 5-26 years.
All dependents 18 and older must bring in a photo ID to be eligible for Vision Clinic services. Patients 17 and under must be accompanied by a UGA faculty / staff guardian.
Appointments are necessary and can be made by phone. If you need an appointment for a medical issue with your eye (pink eye, red eye etc.), you will need to call for your appointment. The average appointment lasts approximately one hour. If you need to select eyewear or have training for contact lenses allow for additional time.
If necessary, cancel or reschedule your appointment by 24 hours on the preceding business day to avoid a $30 missed-appointment charge.
UHC Vision Clinic is offering wellness and medical services. Retail/repair services require an appointment. Call clinic for details at 706-542-5617.
We are a fee-for-service clinic and charge a fee for each service provided. The pricing structure for all services and products is designed to offer a low price for students to eliminate the need for coupons, sales and “shopping around.”
The Vision Clinic is considered a “well clinic,” and out of concern for other patients, those with symptoms of a contagious illness (other than eye issues) should be seen by their primary care provider and postpone their routine eye evaluation.
The UHC Vision Clinic is NOT in-network with Peachstate vision plans!

Eyeglass Turn-Around Time
We have an in-house lab and can have most glasses ready the same day or next day! If we need to special order a material, coating, or lens design, it will typically take five to ten business days to complete the custom order.
We are happy to fill any valid prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. Please remember to bring your prescription with you, or request your outside provider to fax it to us at 706-227-4763.
The Vision Clinic offers prescription and non-prescription safety eyeglass packages. We provide occupational safety eyewear for many UGA departments, as well as custom orders.
