A healthy and clear vision allows us to enjoy many things we take for granted. Imagine if you could not see your children or grandchildren. What if you were unable to see nature’s wonders? How difficult would it be to learn new things without the ability to read? Here at North Country Eye Care, we are committed to preserving and improving our patient’s vision. Regular eye exams will help detect vision and health problems allowing you to enjoy the precious gift of sight for as long as possible.
Pediatric exams are looking for vision conditions that may cause difficulty learning as well as a decreased vision during their lives. Our vision is developed in early childhood and it is important to allow that development to be as good as possible. Children also have the greatest exposure to UV during these years and is the most important time to be protected.
Adults exams are generally preventative. We want to make sure our vision is preserved for the future. Patients during these years can be diagnosed with vision problems such as diabetes and dry eye. Most vision problems go undetected because they have little to no symptoms until you have lost vision. Prescribing glasses and contacts is often the reason patients want to be seen, but we are also focused on your eye health.
Mature adult exams are needed more frequently and are vital to preserving vision. This is the time when vision problems like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy usually occur. As we age our vision slowly deteriorates. Elderly patients often associate quality of vision with independence and quality of life. Good vision is important to driving, reading, watching TV and movies, as well as enjoying grandchildren. We are here to detect, monitor and treat these conditions to allow for our patients to enjoy vision as long as possible during their golden years.
You will find our doctors use the latest instrumentation to diagnose and monitor your eye health, and provide the optimum prescription for you. Our exam rooms have been recently updated with digital phoropters to help you determine which is better one or two? In the current digital age, don’t you think your exam should use digital instrumentation? Make an appointment with one of our doctors to see the difference.
You may notice during your next eye exam in our office, a new instrument that allows us to image a wide view of your retina. This diagnostic instrument makes it easier to detect and diagnose many eye health issues.
In the past we had to refer to the doctors drawing of the retina, now we have a high-resolution image on record to refer back to. Patients that are curious can see for themselves a high-resolution image of the back of their eyes.
Our Doctors recommend you have this imaging done at least every other year.
A vision plan is not the same as health insurance. Some health insurance plans provide routine eye exams as a preventive coverage especially for children under the age of 18. Other health insurance plans only cover exams if you have medical symptoms and/or medical eye conditions such as Dry eye, Diabetes, Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration.
We are able to look up your out of network benefits for most vision plans such as VSP, EyeMed, Blue View Vision and Davis Vision. North Country Eye Care also gives 10% off to patients using their out of network benefits and we submit the claim for you.
