At Clearfinity Eyecare Optometrist, Dr. Laura Frederick believes in providing a yearly complete comprehensive eye examination, which can result in early detection of potential vision-threatening and even life-threatening diseases that are not just limited to the eye.
We currently have a state-of-the-art Visual Field diagnostic device which is helpful in diagnosing any potential issues that occur between the eye and the brain beyond what we can see in a dilated eye exam.
The Visual Field diagnostic device tests different points of your peripheral (side) vision. Any cluster of defects found in the screening may signify a neurological concern.
The most common issue that can be detected very early with a Visual Field Screening is Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a painless, slow eye disease that causes the death of optic nerve fibers resulting in gradual loss of peripheral vision over time. There is a much higher risk if an immediate family member has it.
The cost of the Screening Visual Field is $29.
A Wellness Retinal Imaging procedure is an additional screening tool that involves capturing an image of the back central part (retina) of your eyes. This is not an x-ray or ultrasound procedure and will not touch your eye. This permanent record is very valuable in assessing the current health of your eye. It also serves as an initial baseline from which to compare as we follow your eye health in subsequent years.
The cost of the Wellness Retinal Imaging is $39
Since these are screening tests, medical and vision plans will not cover them, however any abnormalities that are detected in the screening assessment will result in you returning to the office for a more extensive medical visual field test/retinal imaging that can be billed to your medical insurance minus any contracted co-pays.
Together, both screenings provide a complete documented assessment of the appearance and function of your retina. If you choose to have both screenings done it will be packaged at $59 – a $5 savings.
