How many appointments will I have before starting any prescribed treatment?
November 13, 2015
There are up to three appointments before any treatment begins:
- First, the Initial Evaluation (92014) is where the doctor will perform an expanded assessment of binocular vision (eye teaming skills), accommodation (eye focusing skills), oculomotor function (eye tracking skills) and prescribe lenses if needed.
- Second, when indicated, an Assessment of Visual Processing (99215) is ordered to evaluate visual information processing and visual motor abilities.
- Lastly, the final appointment is the Conference where the doctor will discuss the findings from the previous examination(s) and the recommendations for treatment.
Each appointment is approximately 60 to 90 minutes in length
