Sight-threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision.
Our vision center near Milpitas is committed to protecting your eye health with the most advanced technology available, and we are excited to announce that our comprehensive eye exam now includes the iWellness Exam.
The iWellness Exam is state-of-the-art technology that lets our eye doctors see beneath the surface of your retina, where signs of disease first appear. Traditional eye exams and retinal photography do not provide this level of detail.
As part of your pre-examination work-up, our technician will perform this test which the doctor will review with you during your examination today. The results of this exam will become a part of your permanent patient record.
The $39 co-pay is typically not covered by your medical or vision insurance unless being used to actively follow disease. This cost will be added to the price of your visit. Any questions you have about these tests can be discussed during your examination with the doctor.
