Routine vs Medical Exams
Routine eye exams for patients with no existing medical eye conditions do not need to be performed on a yearly basis, unless desired by the patient. Patient’s with medical eye conditions are however recommended to be seen by an ophthalmologist at least once a year.
The procedure for routine and medical dilated eye exams are the same, and will include a vision check, pressure check, and dilation. However, if the examining doctor finds a diagnosable medical eye condition upon dilation of the eyes, the visit will be considered a medical visit. If the doctor finds that the eyes are healthy and no medical eye conditions exist, the exam will be considered a routine exam.
As of 2012, our office ONLY accepts medical insurance, and no longer accepts vision plans. Due to this change, the only type of visit that is covered by medical insurance is a medical eye exam. Routine eye exams will not be covered by medical insurance at our office and will require patients to pay out of pocket. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism fall under the category of refractive services and DO NOT qualify as medical conditions.
We participate with most major medical insurance plans, including Medicare. To see a list of insurance plans that we do NOT participate with, plans that require a referral, or an explanation of deductibles and co-pays, please click here.
If you are still unsure about which insurance we take, please call our office for more details and to see if we accept your plan.
