If you are interested in wearing contact lens, a contact lens fitting with the optometrist is a required step in addition to the eye exam. The prescription that you receive from the comprehensive eye exam is only applicable towards glasses. Because contact lenses are a Class A Medical Device as defined by the FDA, a separate contact lens fitting is required to determine the contact lens prescription. Yearly fitting and evaluations are required because contact lens prescriptions are only valid for one year.
Contact Lens Fitting
The contact lens fitting consists of several tests, including evaluation of your tear film and cornea surface condition, and measurement of your eye size & curvature to determine the best lens to fit your cornea.
The contact lens fitting for patients who have never worn contact lenses before covers initial office visit, insertion & removal training, diagnostic trial contact lens, sample contact lens solution, and subsequent follow up visits, if needed.
Fitting Fee and Insurance Coverage
There is a contact lens fitting fee for all contact lens exams, and the fitting co-payment for insurance patients varies by each plan. Most insurance plans have an allowance for either glasses or contact lens, not both.
If you have a very high prescription or a large difference in glasses prescription between your eyes, you may qualify for a year supply of visually necessary contact lenses with your vision insurance. Come in for a fitting and see if you qualify.
