Is there a difference between a regular eye exam and a contact lens eye exam?
I had a regular eye exam yesterday and the receptionist asked me if I needed a contact lens eye exam also. I need to order contact lens so I said yes.
I did the exam (all ten minutes of it) and it was the same as always.
I went to pay and the receptionist told me that my insurance covers the eye exam 100% but there is a $50 fee for the contact lens exam. Huh? I told her I dont ever remember that fee. She said oh yes everyone pays it and it is normally $75, but since I am a long time customer it is only $50.
It was super busy in there so I didnt argue and I wanted to get my fact straight first.
Does a separate contact lens exam fee sound right? Plus the price of the contact lens?
Thanks and sorry this is longer than I intended.
