1. Does the eye exam have to be done by an optometrist in order for me to use my insurance benefit?
This is a common misconception. No, the eye exam does not have to be done by an optometrist. While optometrists can conduct eye exams, they specialize in diagnosing and treating eye diseases and vision problems.
2. I just want a prescription eye exam for my eyeglasses. Do I have to visit an optometrist?
No, you can visit any eyeglass store, and an optician with a refraction license can perform a sight test.
3. How long does it take to get eyeglasses?
It usually takes between one day for single vision to seven to eight days for progressive lenses.
4. How often is it recommended I return for an eye test?
While the general recommendation for a healthy adult is one eye test every two years, this can vary for different people. You may need an eye test at least once a year if you have an eye condition or are at risk of getting one. Asking your optician will help you plan your next appointment.
