Most routine eye exams are actually complex comprehensive medical visits. A routine eye exam only updates glasses and screens for UN-diagnosed diseases. The examination, diagnosis, and treatment of eye conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, or macular degeneration are considered a medical ocular visit. These are usually not covered by vision plans, but are covered with your regular medical plan under a specialist copay or deductible.
While annual preventative eye exams are critical to your long term health, any new or sudden changes to your vision should be addressed immediately. Contact Refocus Modern Eyecare today if you are worried about your eye health.
