How long does an eye exam take?
An eye exam typically takes 15-20 minutes in itself, but after filling out patient history, insurance verification, preliminary testing, the eye exam, and choosing glasses, patients are usually here 45 minutes. Contact lens exams can take 30 minutes. Please allow 45 minutes to 1 hour if you are being dilated with your eye exam.
Can I get an exam for contact lenses?
Yes, we can schedule you in for an eye exam and a contact lens fitting. Please note that all contact lens appointments must be accompanied by an eye examination from our office.
I’ve never worn contacts before but I’m interested. What is the process?
First, we must see you for an eye examination. Second, you will need a contact lens fitting/contact lens evaluation. Depending on your insurance specifications and the circumstance, this will either be during the same scheduled appointment or in more than one appointment. If you’ve never worn contacts, you must pass a contact lens training session. Lastly, you will need a follow-up with Dr. Wilson before your contact lens prescription will be finalized. Please call us for more information or if you need a pricing quote.
How often am I covered for an eye exam and glasses?
This varies individually. Typically, you may be eligible for a new eye examination every year or every 2 years. For glasses, frames and lenses may be covered every year or every 2 years. This depends on your vision insurance and your insurance plan. We can verify the date you will be eligible for all services.
When will my glasses or contacts be ready?
We typically expect glasses to be ready in 7-10 business days, but this can vary due to prescription, lens specifications, insurance, frame availability, lab processes, and any special requests. Contacts are usually ready in 1-2 business days, but can sometimes take longer than this depending on the manufacturer.
Do you offer photochromic lenses that change from clear to dark in the sunlight?
Yes! We offer different types of lenses that have this technology, and they also come in different colors. We will demonstrate how the lenses work and show you your options.
Do you offer anti-reflective coating?
Yes! There are many types of anti-reflective coatings that can help with glare during night-time driving. We offer new coatings that offer blue light protection when using a computer screen, tablet, or mobile device. Anti-reflective coating also makes it easier to clean your lenses and is scratch-resistant. Plus, it looks great aesthetically and in photographs.
