Routine Vs.

Vision Screening
Typically your Primary Care Physician would provide these services.

Vision screening is a brief evaluation (such as with a Snellen – or “big E” – chart) and can be performed by a primary care doctor as part of a regular physical. A vision screening does not diagnose or correct vision or eye health issues. This is not the same as a routine or comprehensive vision and/or eye examination.

Routine Vision Services​​​​​​​
Routine vision care is the examination of the eyes, with or without dilation, to determine the health of the eyes and related structures, visual acuity, and determination of the patient’s refractive state, prescribing corrective lenses if necessary. In simple terms, eye care professionals, Optometrists or Ophthalmologists, who have specialized diagnostic equipment, check vision, screen for disease, and update prescriptions for eyewear.

Routine vision care coverage includes a comprehensive eye exam. Depending on plan design, it may also provide coverage for hardware (frames, lenses and contact lenses).

In some cases, a routine vision exam can transition to a medical eye exam if during the course of the examination the eye care professional discovers a condition that requires additional testing or a special diagnostic procedure.

Medical Eye Care​​​​​​​
Medical eye care is the examination, treatment and management of an eye condition or disease, such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, infections, eye pain or injury.

Individuals with confirmed and/or suspected medical eye diseases receive covered benefits for the management and treatments of these diseases within their medical coverage.
