Frequently Asked Questions
How much will my visit cost?The cost of the visit varies depending on insurance coverage and copays. The price out of pocket, without any discounts or insurance applied,for a basic comprehensive examination is $190. If you want greater detail on exact pricing of the visit, feel free to contact our office at 517-699-3937 and we can assist with a quote or call your insurance company with their main customer service number.
Will my eyes be dilated?The doctors recommend a dilated exam every year, however, we have newer retinal screening technology that allows our patients to commonly avoid yearly dilations, given that there is no history of any retinal conditions. This allows for a more complete and comprehensive view of the posterior portion of your eye health. In addition, certain health conditions and medication require a dilated examination yearly by their prescribing doctor.
Does an eye exam hurt?No. Seldomly, some patients might notice mild discomfort during an eye exam, such as when they’re asked to look into a bright light or when the dilation drops are administered. Our office makes the exam experience even more enjoyable by not doing the dreaded “air puff” test. We use more pleasant means to assess your ocular pressure. Overall, however, eye exams are painless, safe, and relatively quick.
Should I arrive early for my appointment?Our office recommends coming at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. This ensures all demographic information and necessary paperwork is verified, collected, and entered into our system prior to seeing the doctor. Additionally, some patients experience mild blurriness up close following dilation. To ensure each frame selection is accurately chosen, we recommend arriving prior to your appointment to browse frames if possible.
