What to Expect During an Eye Exam at Our Oklahoma City Eye Clinic

At Eyecare Boulevard, we understand the importance of a comprehensive eye exam for long-term eye health and visual clarity. We strive to ensure you feel well-informed and comfortable walking through our clinic doors. Here's what you can expect during your visit with us:

Your Initial Consultation and Learning Your Patient History

Every eye exam at our clinic starts with a conversation about your needs, medical history, and any specific concerns you might have about your eye care, eye health, or vision. This initial consultation is the first step in helping us tailor your exam to meet your needs.

Standard Eye and Vision Testing

After the initial conversation with your eye doctor, you should expect a series of tests to evaluate your vision and eye health. These tests range from reading eye charts to checking for common eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. This ensures that your vision stays clear and your eyes stay healthy for years to come.

Advanced Diagnostic Procedures

Based on the results of your standard eye exam, we might also recommend additional diagnostic procedures, including:

  • Optomap Retinal Exam: This exam gives a  detailed view of the retina and helps detect signs of retinal detachment, glaucoma, or other eye diseases.
  • OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography): This imaging test provides cross-sectional retina images and is vital in diagnosing and managing conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
  • Visual Fields Test: Essential in assessing peripheral vision, this test can detect issues caused by glaucoma, stroke, or other medical conditions.

Many conditions we check for at this stage show little, if any, symptoms in their earlier stages. This makes comprehensive eye exams an indispensable part of early detection and treatment.

Understanding Your Vision and Medical Insurance Coverage

It's important to note that while these advanced diagnostic procedures are critical for a thorough assessment of your eye health, standard vision insurance plans may not always cover them. However, depending on your medical insurance, these tests could be claimable. We at Eyecare Boulevard understand the complexities of insurance coverage and are committed to helping you navigate the fine details. Our staff is experienced in working with various insurance providers and will assist you in understanding what benefits are available to you and how to take full advantage of them.
