Address Your Eye Concerns with a Trained Eye Doctor
A medical eye exam is an appointment with an optometrist 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 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.
At Sight360, we categorize medical optometry in to two different buckets depending on the seriousness of your eye condition. All our optometrists are trained and qualified to handle medical eye exams, while a select few are highly trained and specialized to handle more serious conditions. Any condition outside of that scope would be referred to an Ophthalmologist.
But don’t worry, we work as a team. If we cannot provide treatment during your visit, we may refer you to one of our other medical optometrists or a board-certified ophthalmologist to co-manage your care.
