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

I have 20/350 uncorrected distance vision that is correctable to 20/25 each eye. Need eye exam for rx. Is this a medical necessary exam for insurance?

I have 20/350 uncorrected distance vision that is correctable to 20/25 each eye. Need eye exam for rx. Is this a medical necessary exam for insurance?

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

How good is an eye exam at wal-mart?

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
