Is there a difference between medical and vision insurance? | Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Child with glasses thinkingMany patients come to our practice bearing their medical insurance and vision insurance, yet few understand how to make use of their insurances at our practice.

Below is a brief outline of how your insurances can help you with in relation to your eye health.

Vision Insurance

In general, vision insurance allows you to have access to routine eye exams and often includes discounts on eyewear and/or contact lenses. A vision insurance plan helps individuals and families provide continuous care for their eye health at an affordable rate.

Medical Insurance

While vision insurance helps you update your pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses every year, sometimes an eye condition shows up out of the blue. Eye infections or styes are common medical conditions that your medical insurance would cover for a visit with an eye doctor and even prescriptions. Medical conditions can vary from dry eye treatments, abnormal blurry vision, or even eye pain.

If you’re concerned about your eye health and want some help, contact our office today. We’ll be happy to guide you on the most cost effective method for your next eye exam.
