Contact Lens Fitting Fee
Our contact lens specialists will be happy to guide you through the numerous types, styles, materials and regimens of available contact lenses. This will ensure that you receive the best service and most appropriate lenses. A Contact Lens Fitting is a separate service that is not part of an eye examination, and therefore carries an additional charge, which is normally not covered by any commercial insurance. This fee can typically range from $85 to $125 depending on the type of contact lenses required. This charge is based on additional examination time needed to determine the base curve, diameter and power of the lens that will best fit each patients’ eyes. (This excludes keratoconus exams.)
Payment for Lenses
After the trial period has determined the most suitable and correct lenses for you, full payment must be received before lenses can be ordered. In some cases, additional savings can be obtained by ordering multi-packs of lenses. Please check with your provider to see if this option is available.
Contact Lens Renewal
Prescriptions issued by Cornerstone Eye Associates are valid for one year. If you require additional lenses or a different type after your prescription has expired, the provider may request that a check be done of your current prescription. This will involve a short exam and a charge of $45-$125 (not covered by insurance). If the prescription is more than 2 years old, the provider may request a full eye exam be completed before issuing any new lenses and/or a new prescription.
