August is National Eye Exam Month! It’s time to celebrate by getting your annual medical eye exam on the books at Collins Vision. If you’re over 40, it’s recommended that you have regular medical eye exams to monitor and “keep an eye” on any diseases or eye conditions that can develop over the years.
Need a regular optometry visit or even just a new pair of glasses? We can do that, too! At Collins Vision, we have everything you need to make sure your eyes and vision are happy and healthy.
Medical Eye Exams at Collins Vision
Medical eye exams are exams our optometrists perform to look for common eye diseases including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and more. When you turn 40, it is recommended that you get a baseline medical eye exam so your doctor has a record of what your eyes look like. From there, your doctor will recommend you get exams at intervals that are tailored to your vision needs.
Modern medical technology allows us to detect and diagnose a plethora of eye conditions before they even start to show symptoms. During your exam, we’ll run several tests to make sure you’re not at risk for developing a condition that could permanently affect your vision before we have a chance to treat it. For most conditions, the earlier we know about a potential problem, the easier it is for us to treat. That’s why it’s important to come see us as often as your doctor recommends.
And the good news is that medical eye exams are billed through your medical insurance, including Medicare, so you don’t need vision insurance to be covered. If you have questions about in-network insurance coverage at Collins Vision, our team would be more than happy to help you get the answers you need! Don’t hesitate to call us at 239.936.4706.
If your doctor finds something that needs to be addressed during your medical eye exam, we’ll be ready and eager to get your next appointment set up to address those concerns. At Collins Vision, we’re equipped with advanced technology to take care of you and your eyes. And with our experienced doctors, you’ll be well taken care of throughout the treatment process.
If it’s time for your regular eye exam for your glasses or contacts prescription, we can do that at Collins Vision as well! Our wonderful optometrists, Dr. Alessi and Dr. Rosen, are well-qualified to address your vision prescription needs.
And when it comes time to order new glasses, we have a full-service optical boutique that makes getting your prescription filled easy. Our optician, Mark Schafe, has over 25 years of experience when it comes to glasses and contact fittings. Plus, we have glasses options from some of fashion’s most coveted brands including Prada®, Fendi® and Marc Jacobs®. No matter your glasses needs and style preferences, we’re confident we’ll be able to find a pair (or two!) you’ll love.
