Pro Q&A with Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care

The Vision Council recently reported that the use of devices had a significant effect on digital eyestrain. Adults, teens, and children who experience this kind of eye problem need to wear proper eyewear to maintain healthy eyesight.

Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care can help with your eye care needs. They include laser eye surgery, optical services, orthokeratology, and eye exam in Rockville, MD. Here are our answers to the frequently asked questions about our services:

Can I Schedule for an Appointment Today?

Keep in mind that you need to schedule appointments one to three weeks in advance. If you need a same-day appointment, you can call our receptions to check if there are any open slots due to patient rescheduling. We will notify you in case there are any slots available.

How Long Should I Wait for the Next Available Appointment?

This can vary. We are happy to give you options to fit your schedule and specific needs.

Why Do I Have to Come Back for the Dilation when It Should Have Been in the Eye Exam?

Dilation happens when the pupils expand after we apply special eye drops. This gives us a better view of your eyes before we conduct tests like laser eye surgery in Washington, DC. There is no additional charge for this service, but subsequent testing during dilation tests may have added costs.

What Insurances Do You Accept?

We accept patients from Vision Service Plan for 30 years. Some examples of insurance providers that we accept are Advantica, Aetna, Medicare, Optimum Choice, Mamsi, and Cigna.

How is a Standard Contact Lens Therapy Different from Premium Contact Lens Therapy?

Standard contact lens involves vision correction for one problem, such as near- or farsightedness. We recommend premium therapy for vision problems that need deeper knowledge and time.

Why are My Contacts Good for Only a Year, While My Eyeglasses Are Good for Two Years?

Our eye doctor in Alexandria, VA, will tell you that the State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene determines these expirations. As your eye care specialist, we can also set our own recommendations if it is in the best interest of your health.

These are just some of the common questions about our eye care services. If you want to learn more about them, call us today at (301) 859-4060. You can also reach us through our contact form.
