LEOMINSTER, MA, March 07, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "In fact, choosing an eye doctor may be as important as selecting a primary care physician as your vision and eyes are the 'windows to your world' as well as your eyes being a window to your overall health," shared Francis A. D'Ambrosio Jr., M.D., Medical Director and Founder of D'Ambrosio Eye Care, Inc. with offices in Lancaster, Leominster, Acton, Gardner and Athol, Massachusetts. Here are some helpful tips for patients who might need some guidance.
Availability of Eye Doctors
There are a few things to ask about regarding eye doctor availability. First, does the office offer convenient evening and weekend hours? Are there openings to work within your schedule for a week or two week of your desired well vision exam and even more quickly if you have an emergency or quickly need eyeglasses replaced? Does the office have available, and offer a broad range off both primary care eye doctors for your routine eye exams as well as eye specialists for eye diseases and surgery should they be needed? If you have a preference, can you choose a male or female eye doctor?
Expert Advice on Insurance
If you have medical insurance like Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Tufts, Medicare and Medicare Advantage Programs, Harvard Pilgrim, United Health Care, Cigna, Aetna, Fallon, Humana, Senior Whole Health, PHCS and Multi Plan, ChampVA, Tricare, Summit Elder Care, Unicare, BMC Healthnet, Coventry Healthcare, MassHealth or vision plans or insurance like EyeMed and VSP, you know that it can be painfully complicated to understand your coverages and payment requirements. It is often helpful to choose an eye doctor's office that has expert advice available when you call to schedule your appointment. With information from your insurance card, expert insurance advice about what is covered before you come in for your appointment can help avoid surprises.
Availability of Helpful Opticians for Eyewear Needs
Your lifestyle, occupational and recreational needs are keys to selecting the right types of eyeglass frames and lenses. Also, glasses that can enhance your "look" are important and may require helpful hints in choosing eyewear. You should feel confident about your selection so that you look great. A good optician who is your personal guide will take the time to find out what you really need, not just try to put you in a "one size fits all" product. You may need specialized advice if you use a monitor, laptop or tablet or even an iPhone or Android? Do you have sunglass needs? Having a helpful optician available can be very important.
"Everyone needs regular eye exams even if you don't seem to have any vision problems. Early detection, diagnosis and treatment of eye health problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and age related macular degeneration are particularly critical for seniors and those with other health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Finding the right eye doctor can be reassuring and beneficial to all," summarized Dr. D'Ambrosio Jr.
