Therefore, when you receive your contact lens order, call the office to establish "Right" and "Left" lenses and mark them with a sticker instead of writing on the boxes. Keep in mind, rebate contact lens boxes might not be eligible for exchange if there are end labels missing that were submitted for rebate purposes.

Understanding your Contact Lens Care & Professional Fees
What are contact lens professional fees for?
As a contact lens wearer additional tests are done for you that are necessary to make sure your eyes are healthy, that your lenses fit properly and to ensure that you are seeing well. Contact lens professional fees are for the extra testing including, all follow-up care (up to 60 days), diagnostic trials, contact lens solutions and time taken by the doctor each year to properly evaluate your contact lenses.
What types of additional tests are needed?
Corneal topography is one example of test done for contact lens wearers. With this computerized data we can detect any undesirable changes of the cornea caused by wearing contact lenses. A second test uses the microscope to examine the fit of the contact lens and the health of the cornea. Thirdly, prescription measurements are done which can be different than those for glasses.
Isn't this part of my annual eye exam?
These contact lens-related tests are done in addition to the eye examination. These are procedures that only need to be done for contact lens wearers, not for patients who don't wear contact lenses.
How much does it cost?
Depending on the type of lenses you wear the cost for the professional services can vary ($80 - $310). The office staff will be able to give you the exact cost for the lenses that you wish to wear.
Doesn't my insurance cover contact lens professional fees?
It depends on your plants coverage. Most insurance plans cover a routine eye exam which determines your glasses prescription and evaluates your eye health. Contact lens services are separate procedures that may be discounted or often not covered by insurance.
