Routine vs Medical Exams
Your vision and the health of your eyes are very important. Eye disease can occur without any symptoms. The doctors and staff at First Eye Care recommend regularly scheduled eye examinations for all of our patients.
Annual wellness visits provide a prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses (if elected) and screen for eye disease. They do not address additional medical complaints. First Eye Care contracts with certain vision plans for Routine Eye Exams which are defined as "regular check-ups".
If the primary reason for your visit today is dry eye, diabetes, flashes or floaters, cataracts, burning, itching, or red eyes etc your visit will constitute a medical eye examination and your medical insurance will be billed.
In the instance where both medical and routine care is needed on the same day, billing may be split between your medical and vision insurance providers.
