Find out all the ways we accept payment for our services.


CareCredit is a healthcare credit card with a credit line for treatments and procedures for your entire family, including your pets. It is a credit card designed for your health and beauty needs.

Your CareCredit credit card can be used at over 150,000 enrolled providers nationwide, including Gainesville Eye Associates, for services including vision care, veterinary, dentistry, cosmetic treatments, cosmetic surgery, hearing care and more.

If you’re approved, you can start using CareCredit immediately.

CareCredit is exclusively designed for healthcare services and you can avoid paying interest with many of our promotional options. Most of our cardholders opt for our shorter term plans from 6 to 24 months. With these plans, you can avoid paying interest by making your minimum monthly payments, and paying the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional balance, including optional charges, is not paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months. Minimum monthly payments are required.

If you need more time to pay for your procedure, we also offer longer programs with a reduced, fixed interest rate. The fixed monthly payment amount is based on repayment over a 24, 36, 48 or 60-month period. Purchases of $1,000 or more are eligible for a 24, 36 or 48-month offer and purchases of $2,500 or more are eligible for a 60-month offer. Not all practices offer all CareCredit financing options, so check with your provider.
