What is the difference between Comprehensive Eye Examinations and Medical Eye Exams?
Comprehensive Eye Examinations
Our comprehensive eye examination includes not only the determination of your visual status, but also a detailed look at the health of your eyes. Your eyes will be examined for any needed correction (glasses or contact lenses) or any potential indicators of eye disease.
Medical Eye Exams
This is a medically necessary comprehensive examination for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions of the eye performed by a physician/surgeon. Some conditions evaluated with medical eye exams include cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and many other potentially sight-threatening diseases.
