I visited the Huber Heights location on Friday, January 24, 2014. I had my mother in law and my two sons (ages 2 and 3) with me. While being seen, my three year-old needed to use the restroom. My mother in law asked for a restroom and was denied. She tried to explain that my son is a toddler and cannot hold his bladder for long periods of time. The secretary, Kathy Green, did not seem to care as she spouted off a "HIPAA law" that prohibits use of their restroom facility. My mother in law (age 52) had to walk both of my toddlers to an adjacent facility during a level one snow emergency so that my son could use a toilet. How ridiculous!! The HIPAA law has everything to do with access to personal files, which should be in a locked file cabinet or within a computer requiring a password. In no way should my son or mother in law have had access to personal files while simply walking to and from a restroom. Mind you, I am nearly seven months pregnant and have personally used the restroom in that facility twice within the last month or so. It's not that they have no public restroom; they are just very selective as to who is allowed to use it. Three year-old little boys apparently do not make the cut.
Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
