Insurance

Vision insurance vs. medical insurance.  Many people may not realize that when they come to an eye doctor their visit may or may not be considered routine.  With that being said, if it is routine with a diagnosis of myopia, presbyopia, etc., it is considered routine. If it is conjunctivitis, diabetes, macular degeneration, cataracts, etc., it is considered medical and may be filed medically and not routine.  Some medical plans include vision coverage and others have separate vision plans.  Either way, it is always a great idea to have information for both when making an appointment even if you are having a Lasik Consult.

Short Arm Syndrome!

Sooner or later, everyone will probably experience trouble reading.  Most people will begin to notice some blurring of smaller print between the ages of 40 to 50.  This condition is called presbyopia and is related to aging.  As we all grow older, the lenses in our eyes become less flexible and lose the ability to accomodate reading of smaller print.  Thus we  have to hold things farther out to see them clearly.  Most people will be able to use over the counter reading glasses but need to see their eye doctor first to be sure that is the problem.  Their doctor can tell them what strength is needed .  If the wrong strength is used,  the wearer can end up with eye strain and headaches.   So before you head to the store for some “cheaters”, please schedule an appointment with us to make sure your eyes are healthy!
