Contact Lens Policy
What is the Contact lens fitting fee?
This fee covers extra procedures for fitting contacts beyond the routine glasses exam and usually a one week follow-up, but may include several visits in the first 30 days from the initial visit. If the contacts are doing well for the patient at the one week follow-up, then a prescription for contacts will be given to the patient. Both new fits and established contact lens wearer are subject to the fitting fee.
What is a free trial pair of contacts?
Most disposable brands of contacts offer a free trial pair of contacts to be used for fitting purposes. Conventional yearly contacts, RGPs, and some specialty lenses have no free trials.
Conventional spherical yearly contacts:
These lenses require 50% down payment at time of order and the other 50% of payment is due before taking the contacts home. These contacts have no exchange or refunds.
Specialty yearly contact lenses policy for torics, bifocals, and RGPs:
These lenses require 50% down payment at time of order and the other 50% of payment is due before taking the contacts home. Each type of lenses differs in number of exchanges and period of time you have to make an exchange. If you tear a specialty yearly contact lenses within the exchange period, then bring it back to the office, because some companies will replace a torn lens during the exchange period. If you try specialty yearly contacts and decide that contacts will not work for you, then you may return the contacts within the exchange period for a refund less a $25.00 restocking fee.
