A Contact lens fitting exam consists of a routine eye exam (with or without dilation), 1 prescription for glasses, 1 prescription for contacts lenses, and 1 pair of contact trials. Both prescriptions are good for 1 year only. These prices cover up to 3 months of follow-up care pertaining to the prescriptions dispensed for glasses/contacts. Office visits for eye infections or foreign body removals during this period do not pertain to follow-up care visits and will be billed accordingly at the time of services.
If patient has an eye infection or requires Toric, bifocal, etc., the doctor may need to order trial lenses and dispense trial lenses close enough to the patient’s prescription (if available) at the time of the exam. This in turn may result in the patient not receiving contact lens prescription at the time of exam. These trials may take up to 4+ weeks to arrive to our office.
Because most vision plans do not cover the contact lens fitting or cover it out of the patient’s contact lens allowance, losing the full glasses allowance; our office DOES NOT BILL the insurance for the contact lens fitting but bills the patient at the time of the exam. The ONLY EXCEPTION to this policy is when the patient’s vision plan does cover the contact lens fitting with an additional co-pay(if any) to the routine exam copay.
If the patient is interested in the contact lens fitting at a later date, the patient is given up to 2 months for the date of the exam to return for the fitting and only pay the contact lens fitting fee.
