Comprehensive Eye Exams with Refraction (not including Contact Lens Fittings):

·         Start at $75 (depending on complexity)

Patients receive a complete vision and eye health check, including glaucoma and retina screenings for diabetics and immediately get their prescription for glasses. Many single vision glasses can be made in less than an hour!

Comprehensive Eye Exam with Refraction AND Fitting of Contact Lenses:

Contact Lens Fittings are additional to the comprehensive eye exam. Following the comprehensive eye exam, the doctor perform special tests during a contact lens exam to evaluate your vision with contacts. The first test will measure your eye surface to determine what size and type of contacts are best for you. The second test will verify that the contact lenses fit correctly on the eye.

The prices below reflect the full comprehensive eye exam including a contact lens fitting of soft contacts. Our office does not currently fit hard contacts.

·         New Contact Lens Wearers – Standard Fitting:  $145

·         New Contact Lens Wearers – Premium Fitting:  $165

·         Previous Contact Lens Wearers – Standard Fitting:  $120

·         Previous Contact Lens Wearers – Premium Fitting:  $140

An eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens fitting because the two are very different. An eyeglass prescription measures for lenses that are positioned approximately 12 millimeters from your eyes; whereas a contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface the eye. An improper fitting or prescription of contacts can damage the health of the eyes. 

-       Standard contact lenses are considered to be single vision, clear, soft, and for daily wear. If you are prescribed standard contact lenses, your eye doctor will perform a standard fitting. If the contact lens your eye doctor prescribes for you does not fall into the category of a standard contact lens, it is considered to be a premium contact lens.

-       Premium contact lenses are basically more complex types of lenses and include but are not limited to toric, multifocal/monovision, and those used for extended/overnight wear. If you are prescribed premium contact lenses, your eye doctor will perform a premium fitting.

All contact lens fittings include one free pair of trial contacts, a free sample of contact lens solution, a contact lens case, and one follow-up visit within a month of the fitting exam. Additional contacts follow-up visits cost $30 per visit. New contact lens users will also receive a training on the use and care of contact lenses by one of our technicians. On the day of your exam you will leave with your contacts and know how to insert and remove them.

Please be aware, only the eye doctor will know exactly the type of fitting you require based on your measurements. The staff cannot know the exact cost of this visit.

Contact Lens Fitting only:

If you recently had an exam and decide you would like to be fitted for contacts, you may return within 3 months of your comprehensive exam for a contact lens fitting. The prices below reflect the contact lens fitting of soft contacts. Our office does not currently fit hard contacts.

·         New Contact Lens Wearers – Standard Fitting:  $120

·         New Contact Lens Wearers – Premium Fitting:  $140

·         Previous Contact Lens Wearers – Standard Fitting:  $75

Medical Eye Exams and emergencies:

A Medical Eye Exam is performed for patients with medical eye conditions, not vision related, such as eye infections, eye injuries, allergies, glaucoma, and dry eye. The doctor will assess your condition, perform any necessary tests, and prescribe medication if needed. During a medical eye exam we normally don't check patients for eyeglasses, but we concentrate on resolving the actual medical condition that brings the patient into the office. This type of exam is often covered by medical plans with applicable copays but not covered by vision insurance plans because they are not a routine vision exam.

·         Start at $150, with one follow up included at no charge

·         Diagnostic testing (OCT, Visual Field), if necessary, have additional fees

·         Additional follow ups vary from $25 to $75 depending on complexity and to be determined by doctor
