What are retinal photos and why do I need them?2018-12-27T12:46:39+00:00

The retina is a light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye that covers about 65 percent of its interior surface. Photosensitive cells called rods and cones in the retina convert incident light energy into signals that are carried to the brain by the optic nerve. Retinal photos allow your doctor to evaluate your retina the day of your exam and furthermore document its appearance for comparison at subsequent exams. This is very important to maintaining good vision for life.

What is a polycarbonate lens?2018-10-31T18:05:05+00:00

The most common is the failure to comply with your maintenance plan (such as wearing your contact lenses too long, not cleaning them properly, etc.).

Why does my insurance not cover a contact lens evaluation with the exam?2019-01-02T00:13:18+00:00

Because most insurances cover either the cost of contacts or that of glasses, many consider the contact lens evaluation a part of the materials cost rather than part of the eye exam.
