What is the definition or description of: eye exam?

Health of the eye: An eye exam consists of checking the vision. If this is not normal a manifest refraction is done to determine if any glasses are needed. This is the test where the patient is asked which lens is better number one or two. Then the health of the eye is evaluated with a microscope called a slit lamp.

How do I read the results of my eye exam to know how bad my vision really is?

How do I read the results of my eye exam to know how bad my vision really is?

Difficult: A problem is that the number you receive for your eyeglass prescription does not easily correlate with the snellen fraction (the one that says 20/20 or whatever). So for instance a +2.00 correction might see 20/40 uncorrected while a -2.00 (note the sign) correction might see 20/100 uncorrected. Ask your ophthalmologist how bad your vision is in a meaningful way if this is important. ...Read more

No: The need for glasses is a refractive problem, and not considered a medical problem. Most insurances will not cover refraction. However, if you are not correctable to 20/20, it is more than likely that you eye md will find a medical condition to account for this. The exam can then be covered by the medical insurance (except for the refraction part). ...Read more

What should I do to prepare for an eye exam?

Not much: Bring your eyeglasses and contact lens parameters if you wear them. Know what your eye history is and what medications you are currently on. Be prepared to have the eyes dilated which can induce glare in the sun and sometimes makes driving difficult. ...Read more

How good is an eye exam at wal-mart?

You get what you pay: Consider the employment decisions made by a graduate of an optometry trade school. Should i set up my own office? Work with another optometrist? Oh gosh, no one will have me so i guess i will work for wal mart. So you get the inadequate exam that an optom gives anyway, from the least consequential of them. You could see an ophthalmologist - right? ...Read more

What causes the cost of an eye exam to vary?

MD or OD: Ophthalmologists are mds. Optometrists are optometry doctors. Usually the fees for mds are higher, although insurances reimburse the same. An ophthalmologist goes to medical school 8 years and then 1+3 years of residency before specialization. Optometrist go to school 6 years after high school. Varying cost may include some doctors that dilate the pupil the first exam and thus the cost is more. ...Read more
