Routine vs. Medical Exams

The procedure for routine and medical dilated eye exams will include a vision check, pressure check, and dilation. 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.

We accept many medical insurance plans, however, we do not accept vision plans. 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 and will require patients to pay out of pocket. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia fall under the category of refractive services and DO NOT qualify as medical conditions.
