Protect and Improve Your Vision in About 30-Minutes
A comperhensive eye exam needs to be on your ToDo list, every year. It gives your eye doctor a chance to assess your vision, update your prescription for glasses or contacts, and monitor any changes in your vision. Some eye and vision problems don’t have obvious symptoms, and regular, annual eye exams can help to detect and treat vision problems as early as possible

Medical vs. Vision Exams
Insurance companies treat different types of eye exams, differently. They set specific rules for what’s covered in each type of exam. At Moscow Family Eye Care, we perform both vision exams, and medical eye exams, depending on your needs.
Vision exams are usually conducted to update your prescription and screen for eye diseases. A vision exam would produce a diagnosis like nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
A vision exam includes a refraction, the part of the exam where your doctor updates your prescription for glasses or contacts. Your doctor may, or may not dilate your eyes during a routine vision exam.
Vision exams are typically covered under vision insurance plans, but not under standard medical insurance.
Medical Eye Exams
Medical eye exams are conducted to evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage medical eye disease. A medical eye exam would produce a diagnosis like dry eye, conjunctivitis, cataracts or glaucoma.
Your provider will nearly always dilate your eyes during a medical eye exam.
Standard medical insurance plans will typically cover medical eye exams, but will not cover a refraction performed during a medical eye exam.
