What to Expect
The best way to protect your vision is a yearly comprehensive eye exam. When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted with friendly faces. Each eye exam will use the latest state-of-the-art technology to assess your eye health. The doctor will inspect your eyes, answer questions, and discuss your eye care treatment options. In addition to determining your vision prescription, our doctor will test your color vision, depth perception, and check for any early indicators of possible eye conditions such as cataracts, retinal problems, and glaucoma.
Our goal is to have each patient leave satisfied knowing that they are receiving the best eye care products and services possible. We have answered a few frequently asked questions regarding eye exams below.
Why do I need to fill out forms?
Medical history affects your eye care, from medical conditions to medications. We want to make sure that we have the most current information for your healthcare to continue to provide you with the care Dr. McClain feels his patients deserves. Also, we want to make sure you get the full use of your insurance. Without have the correct personal information, such as your current address, insurance companies may not cooperate with us. We always want to make sure that we get the best use of benefits for our patients.
Why is my personal background important?
In order to better tailor the eye examination to your needs, our doctor may review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements.
Why does the doctor ask me, “Which is better: one or two?”
While evaluating your prescription, the doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which allows you to see clearer. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. If you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it means you’re almost done with this part of the exam!
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This part of the exam helps determine how your pupils and eye muscles react and assists in gauging neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils during the exam?
Although pupil dilatation is not always necessary, the doctor may make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully examine your retina. Dilation can assist in detecting diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and macular degeneration.
How much is an eye exam?
Eye exams range in pricing, depending on your needs and the complexity. Also, insurances can affect your exam pricing in many different ways. Please call our office if you have any questions or discuss options about exam pricing.
Why am I charged a contact lens service? Even after I have been fitted for contacts?
When you choose to wear contacts, Dr. McClain wants to make sure that your eyes are healthy each year. Because a contact lens is seen as a medical device and is worn in the eye, we must take extra steps to make sure that everything is fitting correctly, even though you may already wear them. Many things can change how a contact lens can fit, including over wearing, improper hygiene, and various other factors. Improper fit also affects vision and comfort.
