Will I be using my medical insurance or my vision insurance?
This question is very important!
Medical eye exams include the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, infections, eye injuries, etc.
If you would like a refraction, which generates a glasses/contacts prescription, this would fall under your vision plan (if you have one). Medical insurance plans do not cover services such as contact lens fittings, glasses prescriptions, or the purchase of glasses.
Please note: medical and vision insurance carriers CANNOT be billed on the same day. This is their policy, not ours. If you would like to have both of these services performed and billed under separate plans, you will need 2 appointments on different days.
You can still have an updated prescription on the day of a medical eye appointment, but there will be a small fee assessed since medical insurance will not pay us for these services.
