Richland Eye Care is committed to caring for our patient’s complete ocular health. Our patients will receive a Complete Eye Health Examination, and our doctors are trained to diagnose and treat most ocular diseases.
A routine vision exam means there is a vision diagnosis, in the absence of a medical diagnosis. Vision diagnoses include myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia. Routine vision exams will be filed with a patient’s vision plan (such as VSP) if one is available and we participate.
If a Medical Diagnosis (cataracts, glaucoma suspect, foreign body, diabetes, dry eye, etc) is determined by the doctor, the patient’s exam is no longer routine, but medical. This means we will bill your medical health insurance and collect your medical copay and/or deductible which is required at time of service. We request a copy of your medical card in your chart for this reason.
