What is the cost of an eye exam?
Our exam fees vary depending on age as well current ocular and systemic conditions. Children under the age of 19 are fully covered annually through MSP, with an optional fee of $20 for retinal photographs. Individuals over the age of 65 are partially covered, as well as those between the ages of 19 and 64 with a current ocular or systemic condition. Please contact our office for specific questions about your personal coverage.
Are eye exams covered by my extended health plan?
All plans are different, but many extended health plans do provide some vision care coverage. We are able to bill many insurance companies directly, which saves our patients the time and hassle of submitting for reimbursement. The list of insurance companies that we deal with directly is continually growing:
