What is a Comprehensive Eye Exam?
Comprehensive eye exams performed by the highly skilled doctors at eyecarecenter evaluate your visual acuity and the complete health of your eyes. Vision tests alone do not paint a clear picture of your overall health, and comprehensive eye exams help detect eye diseases and illnesses like glaucoma and cataracts, and protect the health of your eyes. Eye exams can also help detect early signs of other health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure, based on blood vessels and other structures in the eye. Optometrists recommend that comprehensive eye exams should happen annually.
What Diseases Can Be Detected in an Eye Exam?
Comprehensive eye exams can detect a variety of eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. They can also provide insight into the overall health of a patient, allowing eye doctors to detect undiagnosed conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, certain types of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and more. It is very important to have regular eye exams and the eye doctors at eyecarecenter can help to diagnose and treat eye diseases and other health conditions.
Eye Exams for Glasses & Contact Lens Prescriptions
Patients receive prescriptions for glasses and contact after eye exams. eyecarecenter recommends comprehensive eye exams over standard vision screening because they can determine the cause of vision loss from a variety of eye conditions and diseases.

Medicaid may cover a comprehensive eye exam, depending on the state and a patient’s Medicaid coverage. Medicare covers medically necessary eye exams, such as diabetic eye exams. eyecarecenter recommends that patients research their Medicaid and Medicare coverage or contact their local provider for more information.
There are several factors that can determine the cost of the exam such as, your insurance coverage, the state and/or region in which you live, or in the case of an eye exam. For more information, contact your local provider or research what is covered by your insurance.
While an eye exam is not always needed to get a prescription for contact lenses or glasses, especially in the case of online providers, eyecarecenter requires a comprehensive eye exam.
