Eye tests & consultations

TOB-Glossary-Medical-Insurance-Eye-tests-&-consultations

Eye tests and consultations refer to the coverage provided by insurance policies for routine eye examinations carried out by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. These examinations are typically done once per insurance year and are designed to detect any potential vision problems or eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.

During an eye examination, the optometrist or ophthalmologist will check the individual’s vision, eye health, and visual acuity. They may also perform tests such as measuring the individual’s intraocular pressure, dilating the pupils, and taking photographs of the inside of the eye.

Routine eye exams are important for maintaining good eye health and catching any potential problems early on. They can help prevent vision loss and blindness and also detect other health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain brain tumors.

It’s worth noting that Eye test & consultation coverage is not provided by all insurance policies and it is important to check the specific table of benefits to see if it is included.
