Eye Health and Vision

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.

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

  • Vision insurance is designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost. Learn about types of plans, coverage and payment options.
  • Make the most of your vision insurance plan by understanding your particular vision coverage.
  • As a service to our patients, we are pleased to offer the CareCredit card, the nation's leading patient payment program. CareCredit lets you begin your procedure immediately—then pay for it over time with low monthly payments that are easy to fit into your monthly budget.
