"What is included in an eye exam?", "How long is an eye exam?" and "Why do costs for exams vary?" are common questions...
There is a core set of regulated assessments that represent a complete eye exam however every office will have different people, instrumentation, processes and facilities to make the experience unique.
Optometry offices independently set a base fee for assessment and then will recommend additional tests based on patient needs.
Example: John is 52 years old, wears contact lenses for hockey and is at risk to develop glaucoma because of family history and exam findings. His base eye exam covers his eyeglass prescription and basic health assessment but not his contact lens assessment/prescription or secondary glaucoma evaluation.
One of the differences at Studio Eye Care London is "At our office, almost all testing is done with the Optometrist. I rarely delegate assessments as I like to keep the learning and conversation going throughout the entire assessment. I strongly believe that this enhances our patients' understanding, comfort and eye care experience through increasing time with the doctor"
