FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

How much is an eye exam for glasses? How much for a contact lens exam?
A routine eye exam is $70. A contact lens exam is $95 or $115 depending on the complexity of your fit, and we charge $20 to train new contact lens wearers. Office visits to diagnose and treat conditions such as “red eyes” range from $50 – $105 depending on the complexity of the problem and whether followups will be needed.

Do I have to be dilated?
Eye dilation is performed on a case by case basis. Many patients elect to have an Optomap retinal image instead of dilation (although sometimes both are still necessary). We encourage you to read about the benefits of the Optomap by clicking the link at the top of the page.

Please call our office if your insurance is not listed. When you call to make an appointment, let us know your insurance company so we may obtain your benefit information, and remember to bring your insurance card with you to the exam.

You don’t bill my insurance plan. Can I still come in for an eye exam?
Yes! Even if we are not a provider for your specific insurance, you can still pay for the exam and we will assist you in submitting paperwork so that you can be reimbursed directly from your insurace company. This service is provided at no charge.

What forms of payment do you take?
We would prefer cash, personal check or debit card. We can also take Visa and Mastercard credit cards if needed.

How long does it take to get an appointment for an eye exam?
We are open 6 days a week. Most of the time we are available for an appointment within a few days. We do accept walk-in appointments whenever possible, but to avoid waiting or the possibility that we might not have an immediate opening it is best to schedule an appointment by calling (360) 258-6234.

How long does an eye exam take?
Most eye exams take between 20-30 minutes. This makes it convenient to fit an eye exam into your busy day.

I am interested in contact lenses. Can Dr. Lewis fit me with contacts?
We fit contact lenses on patients in all age ranges. Whether you have worn contact lenses before or want to try them for the first time, we can assist you. There has been a lot of exciting developments in the contact lens industry and we have the latest lenses at our disposal. Dr. Lewis has a lot of experience fitting and training first time contact lens wearers and has a lot of new options for those going back into contacts.

I don’t have a Costco card (I am not a member of Costco). Can I still come in for an eye exam?
Sure – you do not have to have a Costco card in order to have an eye exam with Dr. Lewis. When you get to the entrance of Costco, just let them know you are there to see the Optometrist and they will let you inside. The only thing to keep in mind is that while you will receive your prescription from us, without a Costco card you won’t be able to take advantage of the exceptional prices for eyeglasses or contact lenses at Costco Optical.
