Doctors Valu Vision
It's a zoo in there when it's busy, but their coupons/sales are awesome. They have $19 and $29 eye exam specials...CHECK ONLINE BEFORE YOU GO... and after Black Friday they are $1 for a while!!!! We take the whole family (contact exams are not included). The lady, Asia, is phenomenal, she has the patience of a saint with kids. They take walk-ins and you can make appts. I subtracted one star because of the wait time in there, but they are a great option for us (without vision insurance) to get the whole family seen and it's affordable (2 adults, 4 kids, 2 Moms-in-Law). FYI: They also take Medicaid for eye exams for adults and both exams and glasses for kids, Medicaid does not cover glasses for adults.
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
