- We strive to provide complete care for our patients. Learn more about all the services we provide.
At Eye Care North, we provide both medical and routine eye care. They are very different in terms of the services they cover and it is important for our patients to understand those differences.
Medical insurance is used for medical eye care. When a medical diagnosis or condition is present (such as diabetes, eye infection, dry eye, allergies or cataracts to name a few), it is necessary to file a claim for your visit with your major medical insurance carrier. It typically does not cover routine eye care, glasses or contacts.
Vision plans only cover routine vision wellness exams, along with eyeglasses and contact lenses. Vision plans do not cover medical eye care (the diagnosis, management or treatment of eye health problems). In most cases, it is a discount plan that offers preventative eye wellness exams and eye wear products at a reduced cost. It is not designed or equipped to deal with medical conditions, diagnoses, and/or treatment plans.
Prior to your eye exam, we will help you determine which insurance, medical or vision, will best cover the cost based on your individual needs.
