The American Optometric Association recommends eye exams for healthy and low risk adults age 18 through 64 at least every two years. For those age 65 and older, it is recommended to have eye exams annually or as recommended by your eye care professional. 

One common misconception we hear often is “I see well and don’t need glasses, so my eyes must be fine.” This statement couldn’t be further from the truth. Multiple eye disorders and systemic diseases can be completely asymptomatic or have other symptoms that don’t affect vision. The only way to truly rule out these conditions is to complete a comprehensive dilated eye exam at regular intervals as recommended by your eye care provider based on your own personal risk.

Vision vs Medical Exams

Will my visit be billed to my medical insurance (Medicare, BCBS, United Healthcare, Cigna, PHP, etc) or my vision plan (VSP, Davis, Superior, etc)?

Medical insurance is used for eye health visits (diabetes, cataract, glaucoma, eye pain, eye injury, etc). Typically there is no coverage for material costs of glasses or contact lenses (except in rare cases or for medical necessity in diseased eyes).

Vision Plans are not truly insurance but provide a discounted wellness vision exam to determine a prescription for glasses or contact lenses with inspection of the internal and external eye health in a healthy person without known eye disease. You may have coverage for material purchases of glasses or contact lenses through these plans.
