Refraction (the determination of your eyeglass prescription) may not be a covered service.
Most insurance carriers do not cover this procedure. A refraction is a test that measures your best possible vision. During the test, lenses are placed in front of your eyes and the patient is asked, “which is better—one or two?” A refraction is a separate procedure that measures your ability to see and determine if you need new glasses or if you need a change in your current glasses. It will also determine if you need bifocals. It is typically performed during both a routine exam as well as part of an evaluation and monitoring of a medical condition such as diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye or macular degeneration.
Contact lens fitting and/or evaluation are not part of a routine examination.
Your insurance may not pay for this service. There may be a separate fee depending upon your individual insurance coverage.
If your insurance plan requires a referral, that referral must be obtained prior to services being rendered.
Otherwise, you will be responsible for payment. We request that you provide us with your complete and updated insurance information at the time of your initial and subsequent visits.
