RESTASIS® and RESTASIS MultiDose™ Insurance and Cost Information

What kind of insurance covers a dry eye exam?

Check with your insurance plan. You may have both vision insurance and medical insurance. Vision insurance may pay only for routine visual exams. Medical insurance may pay for exams that check for eye diseases including Chronic Dry Eye disease. Insurance plan coverage and out-of-pocket cost will vary depending on your individual plan.

Some eye doctors accept both vision insurance and medical insurance, depending on the reason for your visit. To get screened for a type of Chronic Dry Eye disease, don’t wait for your annual vision exam because screening for a disease is more likely to be covered by your medical insurance.

When you schedule your Chronic Dry Eye disease screening, make sure the office staff schedules you for a medical appointment and not your annual vision exam.
