If you have medical diagnosis that require continued eye care, these examinations are done using your medical insurance and can be performed by any of our five providers. These examinations regularly do not cover refractions ( eye glass prescriptions) but rather include diagnostic testing and examinations to monitor medical conditions to help treat ocular disease. Diagnoses include (but not limited to): Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), Blepharitis, Blurred Vision, Conjunctivitis, Double Vision, Dry Eyes, Flashes and Floaters, Keratoconus (Corneal Abnormality), Ocular Allergies and Systemic Conditions (such as: Diabetes, High blood pressure, thyroid problems, inflammatory conditions and other medical problems).
Medical diagnosis that are subsequently found during a routine eye examination would be followed up with a medical eye examination in order to treat and follow these diagnosis.
These examinations are performed regularly to monitor progression of an ocular disease and provide intervention when needed. Many ocular diseases affect your vision before vision loss is noticeable. With regular examinations and follow ups, our providers are able to see a problem occurring in your eyes before irreversible damage may occur. Your medical Diagnostic testing is often done on these examinations to monitor possible progression. These examinations are often, but not always, dilated.
