Due to certain medical conditions and findings, a routine eye exam may become or require a medical eye exam. Below is the difference:
A ROUTINE eye exam:
Also known as a well-vision exam, is when a patient has no medical history or problems that would directly affect the visual system. Most Vision Plan insurances offer well vision visits.
A MEDICAL eye exam:
When the doctor identifies the presence of disease or if a patient is experiencing symptoms indicative of a medical issue. A medical exam is necessary for all glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic patients. Medical exams are generally billed to your medical insurance. If you have scheduled a well vision exam and the doctor identifies the presence of disease, or you need a problem addressed during your well vision visit, your insurance may require that we schedule another appointment time. The doctors and staff of Lake Norman Eye Care are committed to addressing all of your visual and eye health needs.
If you are unsure of the differences between these services, please feel free to have one of our staff members go over this with you.
