A Comprehensive Eye Wellness Examination includes vision and eye health evaluations, visual fields screening, Advanced Retinal Diagnostics screening, and dilated fundus exam, as needed. This fee is for private pay patients who require a yearly visit, when not using any insurance. The contact lens evaluation is an additional fee.
An eye examination through Vision Service Plan (VSP) includes a refraction and screening examinations of the internal and external structures of the eye, including dilation, if needed. Additional testing through Advanced Retinal Diagnostics screening is recommended to have a more complete assessment. Some plans include a retinal screening, either fully or for a $39 copay. This screening is not the same as our Advanced Retinal Diagnostic (ARD) Screening. In order to get the best results, we recommend upgrading to the ARD. If you have full coverage for the VSP retinal screening, you will only be charged the difference.
Exam copays vary
For patients who suffer from symptoms of binocular vision dysfunction caused by misalignment of the eyes, we offer an extended comprehensive evaluation in order to diagnose and treat the condition. Some examples of symptoms are dizziness, headaches, eyestrain, light sensitivity, head tilt, imbalance, agoraphobia, difficulty with tasks such as driving, and more. This examination includes all vision testing, computerized specialty vision testing, and also the Advanced Retinal Diagnostics screening. The contact lens evaluation is an additional fee. As a courtesy, we will process a claim to your PPO medical/health insurance. Adjustments are made when/if payments are received and you will receive the difference as a refund. Most PPO insurances and traditional Medicare will have coverage for many of the services, however, HMO insurances never pay for these services so we do not submit a claim.
Please visit our NVM page for more information and to take the questionnaire to determine if you are a candidate.
Neurovisual Yearly Examination $599
Neurovisual Progress Assessment (One-month After Eyewear Dispensing) $399
When the reason for the visit is a specific eye medical concern and not for wellness testing or to update the vision prescription, the visit is classified as medical. Medical visits are claimed to medical/health insurance, not vision plans. These do not include refraction. A refraction is the measurement of vision that results in a glasses prescription. Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, do NOT cover this procedure. We charge a separate refraction fee just for this portion when the service is needed. Vision plans DO cover this procedure.
Medical Visit fees are based on complexity and procedures needed; additional testing may be required at an additional fee
First medical visit $139+ Additional visits $99+
Copays and deductibles vary
Routine refraction $65
Neurovisual or complex refraction $85
A contact lens evaluation must be performed yearly to assure safe contact lens wear and to issue an Rx. The FDA classifies contact lenses as medical devices and the prescription is valid for one year. We evaluate for proper fit and vision, the health of the surrounding tissue, and corneal topography. Follow-up visits are included for up to two months. This fee is in addition to the exam fee and is typically not covered fully by vision plans or medical insurance.

MOST OF OUR PATIENTS OPT-IN EACH YEAR. OUR DOCTORS HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE. The ultra-widefield retinal imaging by Optos California and the cross-sectional optical coherence tomography by Optovue Avanti iWellness are used for early detection of disease and prevention of vision loss, state-of-the-art and vastly superior. These tests are non-invasive and will not cause blurry vision. The fee for these retinal images is reduced if performed at the time of your annual eye examination and is NOT included with your vision plan exam. This service is an upgrade from what VSP refers to as “Retinal Imaging.”
Advance Retinal Diagnostics $74
The most common type of dry eye is evaporative dry eye and the most common cause of dry eye is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (watch video here).
The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is a cleared medical device for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) which utilizes Vector Thermal Pulse Technology™(VTP) shown to increase gland secretion threefold, on average, with just one treatment. This slows the evaporation rate of the tear film resulting in improved moisture, comfort, and clarity of vision due to a longer-lasting fluid reservoir. This no invasive, painless treatment is completed in 12 minutes. One follow-up visit at six weeks after the procedure is included.
Lipiflow $799 (Compare at $1200-1500 elsewhere)
Along with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, if there is also inflammation or ocular rosacea, IPL is the best option. IPL also reduces demodex infestation (watch video here).
Those familiar with dermatological treatments are familiar with IPL in improving skin and reducing redness and sunspots. ThermaEye Plus IPL is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment for eyelid and skin inflammation that leads to meibomian gland dysfunction and chronic dry eye. ThermaEye sends pulses of light to the skin surrounding the eye to constrict blood vessels and creates a soothing heat that liquefies hardened oils that have clogged meibomian glands. Dr. Rolando Toyos, an expert in dry eye treatments, has studied Meibomian Gland Dysfunction for over 2 decades and has developed exacting parameters and treatment protocols that have a 95% success rate in dry eye disease by treating eyelid and skin inflammation, and rosacea that leads to chronic dry eye. IPL has a positive effect on vascularization and inflammation of the eyelids, reducing eyelid redness and stimulating healthy gland function. With our treatment, we will manually express oil from the glands to help restore normal oil flow in the tear film with the MiBoFlo.
