*A Note on Insurance: Check with your insurance provider before scheduling a routine exam. Many insurance plans will cover your visit if there is a medical eye problem, but not pay for the exam if it is a routine eye exam. If you have a medical problem (infection, corneal disorders, diabetes, lazy eye, cataracts, glaucoma suspect, dry eye, double vision, etc.), the visit is considered a medical problem and can be billed to the medical plan. If you only need eyeglasses or contacts due to astigmatism or myopia and are not being seen for a medical reason, the visit is considered routine and will only be billed to your insurance if your medical plan includes a vision benefit.
Office visits to an eye care professional are usually categorized as either routine or medical. This terminology has nothing to do with the steps it takes to perform a comprehensive eye exam or the type of doctor who performs the exam. A comprehensive routine vision exam often contains the same elements as a comprehensive medical eye exam.
