EYE EXAMS

Eye Exams for Glasses

During a comprehensive eye exam, our Optometrist does much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses. We will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. That’s why annual routine eye exams are important, even if you don’t feel your eyeglass prescription has changed. The following are some of our reasonable fees for exams:

Eye Exam for glasses only includes Dilation – $90.00

Eye Exam with purchase of frame and/or lenses – $75.00

Dilation – $25

 

Fitting for Contact Lens (Exam Additional)

Fitting determines the parameters and curvature measurements of your eyes, the fit of the contact lenses, and the health of your cornea. It’s a more complicated exam and often requires at least one follow-up visit. Our contact lens exam fee includes all necessary follow-up visits AND the glasses prescription.

Spherical Contact Lens Fitting – $65.00 includes 2 visits

Toric Lens Fitting – $95.00 includes 3 visits

Multifocal Lens Fitting  – $120.00 includes 3 visits

RGP Fitting – $150.00 includes 3 visits

Due to FDA regulations, contact lens prescriptions expire after one year

The most commonly asked question regarding contact lens exam is:

Question: Why Does a Contact Lens Prescription Expire?

I need to buy more lenses, but my contact lens prescription has expired. My eyes feel fine, and my contacts are working well. I don’t think I should have to pay for a new prescription if my vision hasn’t changed. Why do contact lens prescriptions expire?

Answer: It’s true — when your contact lens prescription expires, you’ll have to make an appointment with your optometrist in order to obtain an updated one. You won’t be able to buy more contact lenses until you do, even if you buy them online. Contact lens prescriptions expire for the same reasons that medical prescriptions expire. Any time you are using a medical product, you should follow up with your doctor at least once per year to identify possible complications. The FDA considers contact lenses medical devices. In 2004, a law was passed that set the expiration date of contact lens prescriptions at one year, or the minimum required by state law, whichever is greater.

At Eyes on Main, we can help common eye infections with eye drop prescriptions, then follow-up visits to ensure the proper treatments.
