Address Your Eye Concerns with a Trained Eye Doctor

A medical eye exam is an appointment with an optometrist or opthalmologist  when there is something wrong with your eyes or vision, beyond nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. If you are in pain, have experienced eye trauma, have a foreign body in the eye, or are diagnosed with or need to evaluate an existing diagnosis of diabetes or an eye disease such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, you will need a medical eye exam. These exams are billed to your medical insurance carrier and not your vision plan. If we cannot provide treatment during your visit, we may refer you to one of our medical optometrists or a board-certified ophthalmologist to manage your care
