Dr. Roland Montemayor answers frequently asked questions
Q: I have trouble driving at night. What can I do to improve night vision?
A: Night time vision problems occur mainly because of the reduced amount of light entering our eyes at night. To help this, we recommend non glare lenses to all our patients to improve the ability of their eyes to see more easily. Low light conditions and glare from oncoming headlights, cause many reflections and our staff will help to determine the best lens to help you see clearly.
Q: Will my insurance plan cover my new glasses?
A: Many patients have medical insurance and a vision savings plan. Your medical insurance has benefits that can be used for your examination. Your vision plan contributes toward the purchase of glasses and/or contact lenses. We will try to gather all the necessary information to help you determine the best way to utilize your benefits.
