Routine Eye Care

Woman looking through eye care equipmentThe doctors and staff of Discover Vision Centers are specially trained to provide you with a complete spectrum of eye care. Maintaining a routine eye exam is the best way to determine the health of your eye. Annual exams assist in the protection of your eyes, detecting any problems at the earliest stage.

Discover Vision accepts and participates in nearly all locally-available insurance plans. Your medical insurance may include an annual routine eye exam. In addition, you may have a separate insurance plan such as VSP which covers routine eye care. Typically, this type of insurance provides an annual eye exam and may also include a benefit toward contact lenses or eyeglasses. Every plan is different and the best way to find out if you have coverage is to call your insurance provider or provide this information to our staff before your visit. For the most up-to-date list of accepted insurance, please call 816.478.1230. 

How often do I need an Eye Exam?

The need and frequency of eye exams vary with age, race, medical history, occupation and other factors. Regularity should be determined between you and your eye doctor. The American Optometry Association recommends the following schedule for routine care:

Eye Exam Frequency by Age

Infant/Toddler 0-24 months By 6 months of age
Preschool 2-5 years At 3 years of age
School age 6-18 years Before first grade and every two years thereafter
Adults 19-40 years Every two to three years
Adults 41-60 years Every two years
Adults 61+ years Annually

People with certain risk factors may need to see an eye doctor more routinely than others.  Risk factors may include:

  • Family history of eye problems
  • African-American over the age of 40
  • Diabetic – for more information on diabetic eye care click here
  • Previous eye injury
