Welcome to Midwest Eye!
Whether you are looking to update your glasses, monitor your eyes for health related issues such as glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration, be fit with contact lenses, or should you have an eye infection or sore eye, we will work together with you to provide you with the very best in eye health and vision care.
Prior to your examination, we will ask for your insurance information so that we can determine whether or not we are providers with your plan, determine eligibility, and obtain any necessary authorizations for services and/or materials.
What Can I Expect During My First Visit at Midwest Eye?
We will have you fill out a “new patient” form which includes a complete patient and family medical history (this form can be downloaded from our website www.midwesteye.net). Additionally, we ask that you provide us with a thorough list of all medications or supplements that you are taking, and bring in your current glasses, sunglasses, pharmacy information and medical insurance cards.
Our technician will start your examination performing tests that may vary dependent on your particular needs, medical history, or responses. Your doctor will go over the results of those tests with you and complete the examination. Dilation of the pupils is usually performed during your examination, however, if you are uncomfortable driving after dilation or need to forego at this visit, please let us know, we can offer you ultra wide field photography of your retinas or schedule a return visit when you have a driver.
Contact lens fitting requires additional time and services including corneal topography which may not be covered by your insurance provider. If you have questions regarding your coverage, we will be happy to go over fees and services, insurance coverage, or discount possibilities with you.
If you are looking for new glasses, please feel free to come in early for your appointment to peruse our optical department before your appointment and dilation.
Thank you for choosing Midwest Eye!
