A refraction is the process of determining your prescription for corrective eyeglasses. It is an essential part of an eye examination and necessary in order to write a prescription for glasses. In order to get an accurate measurement, refraction must be done prior to your eyes getting dilated.
Medicare and many medical insurance plans do not cover refractive services. We charge separately for this refractive service if it is not covered. Our office fee for refraction is $75. This fee is collected on the day of service. If your plan does cover refractive services, we will reimburse you accordingly.
Contact Lens Evaluation
In order to write a prescription for contact lenses, you must have a contact lens evaluation. The charge for a contact lens evaluation ranges from $100-$200 depending on the complexity of the process. Please ask us before your evaluation if you have concerns. We will be as specific as possible, but please understand we cannot always predict the complexity of the fitting. If you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage, please do not hesitate to ask. We will do our best to assist you.
