Dr. David R Brear has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Went for a check-up and was told I did not need the refraction part of the exam because with my glasses I was seeing 20/20, thus they could not improve the vision. There is a flyer posted in the office that the refraction is $50 and will not be paid by insurance. Therefore, I did not do the refraction since it was not needed. Called back a week later to get a written RX for new glasses since my old frames were broken. I was informed by the staff at Dr. Brear's office that I could not get a RX without a refraction!!! Therefore, I would have to come back and pay the $50 for the refraction in order to get a new RX (even though there was no change in my vision). When I asked why, I was told that it was a deal that they had with my insurance company. I thought the insurance company was not paying for refractions?? Totally confused and felt like this was a scam?? Won't be back.
