Providing patients with the best primary eye care in the Yakima Valley is our #1 priority.  And, diagnosing potential vision issues early is one of our main goals.


Therefore, we are constantly investing in the most advanced diagnostic technology available.  Our most recent investment provides our doctors with the highest resolution retinal images available in any digital retinal camera today -- the Canon CR2 Plus retinal imaging system.


What is the benefit to you as a patient?  This technology allows us to diagnosis some eye issues earlier than ever before, including macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and geographic atrophy. 


And, by diagnosing these issues earlier means that treatment can start earlier possibly reducing the long-term impact on your vision.


At Yakima Vision Center, we always put the long-term care of your vision as our #1 priority.

Clearing up any confusion about 2014 affordable care act changes

There has been quite a bit of discussion about the vision insurance coverage changes once the Affordable Care Act starts in 2014.   

Overall, the Act should not cause any significant changes in "coverage" for those adults who already have insurance.  Medical and routine care will still be available and offered by providers. 

Some patients, however, may experience changes to their deductibles, co-payments and premiums.  This may change your out of pocket expenses in seeing an eye doctor, just like when you see your primary care provider. 

One significant addition is that Obama Care does mandate that all children have a yearly eye exam, so most policies should include routine eye care for children in 2014.

If you have any concerns or questions about your vision coverage, please call us and we will be glad to answer questions or refer you to someone who can.

Have a great 2014!
