The fitting, prescribing, and annual evaluation of contact lenses is a separate procedure from the comprehensive eye examination performed by either an optometrist or ophthalmologist at Lexington Eye Associates. Since these visits require two separate professional services, there will be two professional fees that may be handled differently by insurance policies.
All contact lens visits are fee for service. Most insurance companies do not cover cosmetic contact lens costs. We will be happy to provide a letter of medical necessity (e.g. keratoconus, aniridia, aphakia, anisometropia, amblyopia) and any records needed.
Visit Fees do not include price of the lenses.

In order to ensure a successful fitting, it is important to have a followup visit within the first month of wearing lenses. Lenses which have not been checked within two months of the initial fitting are nonreturnable and nonrefundable.
Many insurance companies give 10 to 20% discounts on contact lenses when purchased through Lexington Eye Associates.We give 10% discount for a year purchase of disposable contacts (Not combined with other discounts). We have a large contact lens inventory and would most likely have your lens in stock unless you have a custom or specialty lens.
