When should my child's eyes be examined?
The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend the first vision screening occur in the hospital as part of a newborn baby’s discharge examination. Visual function (including ocular alignment, etc.) also should be checked by the pediatrician or family physician during routine well-child exams (typically at two, four and six months of age). Later, eye examinations including amblyopia and alignment screenings should take place beginning at three years of age and then yearly after school age.
If you suspect your child suffers from decreased vision or if there are hereditary factors that might predispose your child to eye disease, please make an appointment with us as soon as possible. New techniques make it possible to test vision in infants and young children. If there is a family history of misaligned eyes, childhood cataracts or any serious eye disease, our doctor can begin checking your child’s vision at a very early age.
What happens if I need glasses?
We may find you need a corrective lens to see your best. In general, your options include contact lenses, glasses or a corrective surgery such as LASIK.
If you opt for glasses, we will assist you with frame and lens selection and then measure you for the appropriate lenses for your correction.
If you choose contacts, the doctor will fit you with trial lenses, then ask you to return so the doctor can check your eyes with the lenses in place to make certain the power is correct and that they are not causing any harm to your eyes. You will also need to order glasses so you have something to see with when you take your lenses out.
If you are considering LASIK or another corrective surgery, we will work with you and the eye surgeon to be certain your needs are met and you see as well as possible afterward.
Insurance and Billing
Do you accept my insurance?
We have made prior arrangements with many insurers and health plans to accept an assignment of benefits. This means that we will bill those plans for which we have an agreement and will only require you to pay the authorized co-payment at the time of service. It is our policy to collect this co-payment at the time of service.
Will Medicare pay for my glasses?
Medicare will pay for glasses ONE (1) time after cataract surgery on each eye if done within 1(one) year of surgery. For a total of 2 pairs of glasses.
If this is not your case, or if you have no insurance coverage then you will be expected to pay your bill with cash or a credit card at the time of service.
