Booking an eye exam
Routine eye examinations consist of three parts:
- Health and wellness examination - The doctor does a physical examination of the front and back of the eye using various illumination devices. This may or may not require dilation of the eye.
- Refraction - The doctor places several lenses in front of the eyes to gain a "true refraction". He/she then asks the patient to look at a letter chart to gain a "subjective refraction" - the lens combination that the patient is most comfortable wearing.
- Contact Lens Fitting - The contact fitting is only performed on patients requesting to wear contact lenses. It is considered to be "cosmetic" by most insurance companies. Therefore, it is an out-of-pocket expense to most patients requesting it.
