TOP QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS
Do I need a referral?
This depends on your healthcare plan. As we offer specialized procedures some plans require the primary care physician to provide a referral prior to scheduling your appointment. Check with your insurance provider or call our office with any questions.
Do you accept my insurance?
Please visit our insurance page.
How long will my appointment take?
A comprehensive exam with accurate diagnosis typically requires your eyes to be fully dilated. If your eyes need to be dilated, please plan on up to 2 hours. While it is safe to participate in normal activities that day, any activities requiring acute vision should be avoided.
How do I reduce Digital Eye Strain from my computer?
While participating in screen time, every 20 minutes look at a target 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This is known as the 20/20/20 Rule and will relax the accommodative system.
What is the difference between a vision diagnosis and medical diagnosis?
Examples of vision diagnosis are "Out of focus" and "Need glasses". Medical diagnosis would include eye muscle or tear duct problems, cataracts or optic nerve problems.
Does my insurance cover both?
Medical insurance only covers medical diagnosis. Unfortunately the diagnosis cannot be known until the exam is completed. Patients are responsible for payment of vision diagnosis.
