NOTICE ABOUT REFRACTION
We have you scheduled for a complete eye exam today. A complete eye exam involves two
1. Refraction – this portion of the examination determines the best lens correction for eyes with
refractive errors. The final refraction is the prescription given to provide the best visual acuity.
2. Medical Examination –is an extensive eye exam allowing the doctor to diagnose and treat any abnormal ocular conditions.
Please be aware that if we are filing medical insurance for today’s visit, medical insurance typically considers the refraction to be “routine vision” and this portion of the exam is not covered. If you have separate vision insurance, please let us know at the time of check in, you may be eligible for routine benefits.
The $30.00 refraction charge is due at the time of service.
If you are here for a surgery consultation a refraction is mandatory to determine the best refractive procedure for you.
PLEASE CHECK ONE:
( ) YES, I want a refraction today and a copy of my prescription upon request.
( ) NO, I do not want a refraction today and will not receive a written lens prescription.
