What exactly is the difference in vision vs medical insurance? This is one of the most confusing issues patients face in any optometrist's office. Vision insurance is designed to cover only updates in glasses and contact lens prescriptions and a health wellness screening. It does not cover any other issues with the eye, such as allergies, dryness or infections. It also does not cover any treatment for headaches, cataracts, macular degeneration or glaucoma. In addition, it does not cover any monitoring for patients on high risk medications, such as plaquinil, or diabetic check-ups. All of these other conditions and more are covered by your medical insurance. Unfortunately, due to the rules of your insurance company, we often have to bring patients back for a separate visit from their annual wellness exam to treat their medical concerns. Please let us know what your primary concern is for your visit so we can help you maximize your benefits and obtain the correct insurance information.
