If you have been diagnosed with an eye disease of any kind, you’re likely wondering what your treatment will look like – and, of course, how much you will end up paying for it.

Please let us know if you have questions about the financial side of your care or any concerns about your ability to fit the necessary treatment into your budget.
There are many different kinds of eye disease, so naturally, the cost of treating them can vary significantly from patient to patient. In some cases, the solution may be as simple as getting eyeglasses or using artificial tears. But for particularly serious eye problems, more advanced procedures may be required.

When it comes to treating eye disease, you may be confused regarding whether you will need to use your vision insurance or your regular medical insurance. In general, your vision insurance is mainly meant to help cover the cost of annual vision exams, glasses lenses and frames, and contact lenses. It typically does not pay for anything that could be considered a medical expense.
In many cases, the treatment for your eye disease will fall under your regular medical insurance. This tends to be the case for patients who have experienced vision loss, floaters, and dry eyes. However, if your treatment involves new glasses or contacts, you may end up using your vision insurance. We can review your coverage with you to make sure that you fully understand which type of insurance applies to your current situation.
