ROUTINE VISION INSURANCE
We participate in vision insurance plans that emphasize professional eye care and quality eyewear.
Vision insurance covers ONLY routine eye exams for purchasing glasses or fitting and purchasing contact lenses. A "routine" eye examination checks for, but finds no medical problems. The refraction (determination of the eye's prescription) is included, and since there are no medical problems, there is no discussion of problems or follow-up needed. Regardless of your vision insurance, most plans do not cover 100% of expenses, and thus you should expect some out-of-pocket costs.
MAJOR MEDICAL INSURANCE
Medical insurance pays toward eye care visits that are medical in nature. An emergency visit, or one focused on a specific eye problem, would be submitted to medical insurance. Some examples of a medical visit are: eye infection, floaters, eyelids styes, dry eyes, glaucoma treatment, loss of vision caused by a medical condition of the eye, etc.
Medical insurance may also pay toward a comprehensive examination if there is a medical reason for it (such as diabetes, cataracts, or any of the previously listed reasons). If there is a medical diagnosis, we are required to submit the examination to the medical, not vision, insurance.
