The Contact Lens Exam

A complete medical and refractive eye exam is necessary before a patient can be fitted for contact lenses. This exam rules out the possibility of any underlying condition that could prohibit contact lens use. As mandated by federal law, a contact lens prescription is only valid for one year. All patients are required to come in for an annual contact lens exam. A prescription cannot be renewed, and no new orders can be placed, without an annual exam. If you have no problems or no change in lenses, the cost of this service will range between $32 and $65. This charge is in addition to the cost of the comprehensive exam. Contact lens exams are NOT included in a medical exam.


Contact Lens Prescriptions

Contact lenses must be fit appropriately to your eye because the contact lens comes in direct contact with the tissues of your eye. Comfort and optimal vision can only result if the contact lens fits correctly in a healthy visual environment. A prescription can only be determined by the careful observation of the lens on the eye and the eye's response to the lens. For these reasons, it is the patient's responsibility to keep all appointments and follow-up visits.


Payment

Fees for the comprehensive exam, contact lens fitting, or annual contact lens checks are due at the time of service. A 50% deposit is required for all contact lens orders, with the exception of trial lenses. Fitting fees for first-time wearers range from $100 to $150. This fee is non-refundable and due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card and Care Credit.
