Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of eye exam do I get for $20.00?

Our $20.00 eye exam is a full comprehensive eye exam. We start the exam with a computerized reading of your visual acuity using a machine called an auto-refractometer, followed by fundus photography (taking pictures of the retina) to check for ocular health. We perform a full manual refraction, as well as a tonometry (eye pressure check) and slit lamp evaluation to check for any eye lid or corneal deficiencies.

Q: Why is a contact lens exam more expensive?

A contact lens exam consists of a full comprehensive exam as well as a contact lens fitting to ensure that the contacts you are getting will be the ones best suited for you. It also consists of follow up visits if you have any trouble with the way the lenses are fitting or if you are not comfortable with your vision.

Q: How much will a pair of glasses cost?

This is a very broad question without a definitive answer. There are a lot of components that go into the cost of the glasses such as, what type of frame you would like, what type of lens you want, what material should the lens be made from, and what added features and coatings you want. Our prices range from as little as $29.00 and they go up from there.
