Allow 1 hour for a complete comprehensive exam.

Will my eyes be dilated?

All new patient's will have their eyes dilated at their first visit, and then will receive dilation every other year unless medically necessary.

You will experience up close blurry vision and light sensitivity for a couple hours after the exam so please plan travel accommodations accordingly.

We have the option to take retinal photos on all patients who are here for annual exams. Most insurances have a $39 copay for this service. This is not a replacement for dilation.

What is the difference between vision and medical insurance?

Vision insurance benefits cover routine eye exams to prescribe glasses prescription, and check the health of your eyes. If a medical eye condition is found, you may need services that are not covered by vision insurance. You may need to schedule an additional appointment to address the related concerns. We will bill medical insurance for medical eye care, but payment at the time of service may be required.

Are contact lens evaluations included in the comprehensive eye exam?

No, contact lens evaluations to update your contact lens prescription is an added service that includes an additional fee. Most insurances have a separate benefit for the contact lens evaluation.

Our office doesn’t do only contact lens evaluations. You will need to receive a full comprehensive exam with a contact lens evaluation.
