Most vision insurances have a standard copay for a comprehensive ocular evaluation. In this examination, we will obtain a new spectacle prescription, along with an explanation of how the new prescription will benefit a person’s life and visual needs. We will also perform an extensive evaluation of our patients’ external and internal ocular health.

Need a contact lens fit as well?

After the comprehensive ocular examination, we will analyze your corneal topography along with your tear film and pick a contact lens that will best suit your eyes. We will then dispense a trial contact lens for you to wear for a week. This ensures the vision and comfort is optimal for that lens. The contact lens fit will have a standard copay. The copay is usually varied depending on whether we are fitting in a spherical, toric or multifocal contact lens. The contact lens copay will be discussed before the start of the examination.

Optical and contact lens dispensary

After a glasses prescription is determined, an optician will help you find a glasses frame that will compliment your facial features and your style. We will then discuss the right lens that will give you the best clarity and comfort. Vision insurance gives you a specific monetary value off the frame and/or a specific percentage off. The lenses and lens coatings are given at a contracted rate that has been negotiated by your insurance. Usually the lenses have set copays or set percentages off.
For contacts, your insurance takes a specific monetary value off a year’s supply of contacts. An optician will go over the price of a year supply and 6 month supply of contacts after your benefits are applied. Occasionally, vision insurances combine your contact lens benefits to go towards your contact lens fit AND your contacts materials. If it is a combined benefit we will let you know how much money is left to go towards your contact lens materials.

Medical Insurance

If we are in network with your medical insurance, we will call your insurance and see what the copay for a specialist office visit is. Because optometrists are specialists, you may need a referral from your primary care physician. For most medical insurances, the copay does not apply until the deductible and/or the out of pocket has been met. If it has not been met, we will let you know how much the deductible and out of pocket has been met so far.
