Contact Lens Fitting/Evaluation Agreement

  • The fee for contact lens fitting and evaluation by Bright Eyes Vision is not included in your comprehensive eye exam. Contact lenses are medical devices and even though they may feel fine, there are health risks that must be taken seriously. Additional tests are necessary to make sure your eyes are healthy and that your lenses fit properly. Contact lens professional fees are for the extra testing and time taken by the doctor and staff each year to properly evaluate your lenses.

    Explanation of Exam Type and Fees.

    Contact Lens Fitting: This is necessary for all patients new to contact lenses. The price depends on the type of contact lens that is determined best for your eyes and visual needs. The fitting also includes the instruction on insertion, removal, and care of the contact lenses. The fee includes the initial visit and up to three subsequent visits directly related to contact lens wear and fit within a 90 day period for soft contact lenses.

    Contact Lens Refitting: This is necessary for established contact lens wearers that do not know their exact lens parameters or when a new contact lens type/brand is needed. Review of instruction on insertion, removal, and care of contact lenses are also included, if needed. The fee includes the initial visit and up to three subsequent visits directly related to contact lens wear and fit within a 90 day period.

    Contact lens evaluation: This exam is necessary every year for all current contact lens wearers. It includes evaluation of your current lens fit and power as well as changes in power if necessary, but not a change in type/brand.
