The fees for optometric services will vary with the complexity of the case and the number of visits required to solve the problem.
We are listing some of the most common fees to give prospective patients an idea of what we charge for different services and materials. This list is not comprehensive, but serves as a guide. Fees may be modified at any time.
These fees represent charges when not using any insurance. We do not participate with any vision plans at this time. We can provide you with an invoice that can be submitted to some vision plans for partial reimbursement.
We do participate will almost all major medical insurance plans operating in Maryland including Medicare. This is the same insurance you would use to see your regular doctor or specialist. We do not participate with Kaiser Permanente. We must collect any copays and deductibles before starting any services. We also charge for refractions, contact lens fittings, contact lens supplies and eyeglasses. These services and materials are not covered by most medical insurances. You can use your Flexible Spending Accounts to pay for all services and materials provided at our practice. You can also use CareCredit to spread payments out for up to two years with no interest charges.
Contact lens fittings and evaluations are separate and distinct from regular eye exams and medical eye evaluations. We will not do a contact lens fitting without a prior complete eye exam that includes a refraction and a complete eye health assessment.
Contact lens exam fees do not include the cost of materials such as boxes of contact lenses or individual RGP lenses. Fees will be higher for more complex cases involving significant astigmatism and/or multifocal lenses for presbyopia. Specialty custom soft or rigid gas permeable lens fitting fees are determined on a case by case basis. These lenses include lenses for keratoconus and scleral lenses.
