In addition to the eye exam fee ($10 copay), there is typically a fee for fitting and evaluating the fit of the contact lenses. This will depend on the type of lenses to be fitted (e.g. for astigmatism or no astigmatism, soft disposable or gas permeable, and the level of complexity). The fitting fee can range from $32 to $300.
