TOP 7 QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS
How much are eye examinations?
With vision insurance, eye examinations would only cost your co-pay. Without vision insurance, please call the office for our current fees.
What insurances do you accept?
We accept most vision insurances, including Vision Service Plan (VSP), Eyemed, Davis Vision, Medical Eye Services (MES), and Spectera.
We also accept most PPOs when a medical appointment is required.
What other languages are spoken?
Our staff, including Dr. Dodge, is fluent in Spanish.
(Se habla espanol).
How long does an appointment take?
The comprehensive eye examinations take roughly 30 minutes, with a little more time added if your eyes will be dilated. This is one of the most thorough exams you will ever have!
Will my eyes be dilated?
It is important to have a retinal evaluation the first time you are at our office, and every 1-2 years there after. Patients with higher prescriptions, over the age of 60, or those that have diabetes should have a retinal examination every year. The eyes will either be dilated, or a retinal photograph can be taken. This will be discussed with the optometrist.
Do you check for glaucoma?
Yes, our comprehensive examination checks for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and many other eye diseases.
What should I bring to the office?
Please bring your current eye glasses, contact lenses that you use, solutions, and eye drops. Also make sure you bring any paperwork you filled out, a photo ID, and your vision and medical insurance cards.
