When to have eye exam?

Dr.Young recommends that you have a comprehensive eye exam every one to two years, depending on your age, risk factors and whether you currently wear corrective lenses. Children Routine eye exams are essential for children to be ready to learn in school, and experts say more than 80 percent of information children receive in classrooms is presented visually. Children generally should have their first eye exam at 6 months of age, another exam at age three and again at the start of school. Risk-free children should then continue to have their eyes examined every one to two years until age 18.

How much does an eye exam cost (No Insurance)?

It depends if it is Medical or Vision. Medical means if you have pre-existing condition like Glaucoma, Cataract, Diabetes, Macular Degeneration, infection etc… It is subject to medical insurance. Vision – means if you think you need glasses or an updated prescription we can bill your Vision Insurance. We also offer Time of Service (TOS) discount.

Eye dilation: Necessary with every eye exam?

It depends on the reason for your exam, your age, your overall health and your risk of eye diseases. The eye drops used for dilation cause your pupils to widen, allowing in more light and giving your doctor a better view of the back of your eye. Eye dilation assists your doctor in diagnosing common diseases and conditions, possibly at their earliest stages. They include: • Diabetes • High blood pressure • Macular Degeneration • Retinal detachment • Glaucoma Eye dilation also makes your vision blurry and your eyes more light sensitive, which, for a few hours, can affect your ability to drive or work.
