Your eye exam will begin with completion of a patient information / history form. In order to save you time, this form can be downloaded from this page and completed before your visit. Just make sure to bring it with you to your appointment!

Formularios Necesarios:

Comprehensive eye exam: $65.00

Before you enter the exam room, you will undergo some very important tests. First, your prescription will be estimated and the curvature of your eye will be measured. This information is invaluable in determining your final prescription. Then, your peripheral vision (also known as side vision) will be evaluated. This important neurological test ensures your visual pathway is intact from your eyes all the way to the back of the brain. Next, your eye pressure will be measured. Eye pressure is a very important risk factor in glaucoma, an eye disease.

You are now ready to enter the exam room. Dr. Hoobyar will review your history form and gather any needed additional information. It's very helpful if you bring your current glasses; we'll check your vision with them and measure what prescription they are. Now, you will undergo some neurological and eye alignment testing. After that your prescription will be finalized using the information we have gathered so far and your feedback. To finish the exam, we'll evaluate your eye health, both outside and inside. This is a crucial step in evaluating for cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Lastly, you'll be provided a written prescription for glasses that can be filled next door to us at Costco Optical or anywhere glasses can be purchased.

If you have any questions or concerns with your new glasses, follow up visits are included for 60 (sixty) days.

Spherical contact lens exam: $105.00

This contact lens exam includes all of the features of the comprehensive eye exam plus the fitting of spherical soft contact lenses. These lenses correct for nearsightedness and farsightedness (also known as myopia and hyperopia).

There are many different types of lenses available and the replacement schedule of these lenses can vary anywhere from one day to one month. Recommendations for lenses and replacement schedule will be made based on your individual needs and lifestyle. If you are a current contact lens wearer, it's helpful if you can bring your current contact lens information (old prescriptions, boxes) with you. Follow up visits are included (if necessary) for up to 60 (sixty) days.

Toric contact lens exam: $ Call

This exam shares many features of the spherical contact lens exam, except toric contact lenses correct for astigmatism. Astigmatism is a condition in which light that enters the eye focuses in two spots instead of just one. Often, patients have been told that the eye is shaped like a football or an egg instead of something round like a basketball. Astigmatism can be caused by different structures in the eye, most commonly the cornea. The cornea is the clear window in the front of the eye on which the contact lens rests. Many patients have previously been told they cannot wear contacts because of astigmatism. Thankfully, this is not the case anymore. As technology has evolved, many patients with astigmatism can now wear contacts successfully.

Bifocal contact lens exam: $ Call

For our patients who are mature enough to know what it's like to have a hard time reading fine print, bifocal contacts may be for you. Again, contact lens technology has come a long way recently. Previously, patients that could not see well up close with their contacts on may have been obligated to wear reading glasses. Thankfully, that's not necessarily the case anymore. New contact lens designs allow patients to continue with the freedom of wearing contacts while still being able to see far and near. These contacts are still disposable and replacement can vary from two to four weeks.

Rigid contact lens exam: $ Call

Rigid gas permeable (also known as RGPs or hard) contact lenses, though less popular than they used to be, are still a good option for many patients. Often, patients appreciate their ease of handling and consistent vision, once they have adapted to the lens sensation. Also, there are some patients for whom soft contact lenses are not an option. These patients may be post-surgical or have an eye condition that prevents them from wearing soft contact lenses successfully. This makes rigid contact lenses medically necessary. Rigid lenses are often the only means to achieve adequate vision for these patients.

Monovision: $20.00

Monovision is another way to correct reading issues for our more mature patients. After your prescriptions for both far and near are determined, we will then determine your eye dominance. Next, your dominant eye will be adjusted for distance and your other eye will be adjusted for near. This is another option (in addition to bifocal contacts) for those who may need a little bit of extra help up close. We will determine which is the best option for you based on your individual needs, prescription, and lifestyle.

Dilation: $25.00

Dilation is the process of using eye drops to temporarily enlarge the pupils. This allows for a more thorough evaluation of eye health. We screen for any eye disease, including (but not limited to) cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. It is also important in systemic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Because the drops will blur your vision for the short term; some patients are more comfortable if they have a driver. You'll likely notice increased light sensitivity and you'll be provided with sunglasses if necessary. Dilation needs vary based on your specific eye issues and medical history. We are happy to discuss dilation with you. Ultimately, you will have the final decision regarding the dilation of your pupils. It is never required.

Contact lens training: $25.00

For those trying contact lenses for the first time, we do require contact lens training. The patient will be taught how to safely insert, remove, and care for their new contact lenses. This service cannot be provided on its own and must accompany a contact lens exam. Contact lens training is mandatory for all first time contact lens wearers.

Red eye evaluation, treatment, and follow up (as indicated): $30.00 - $75.00

This includes evaluation of red eye from various issues including (but not limited to) infection, a foreign body, allergies, or other causes. The fee will vary based on the level of complexity, treatment required, and need for follow up. Please call our office if you need additional information or to make an appointment for this service.

Note: Additional services are available and fees may vary for those services not listed. Prices are subject to change without notice.
