    Contact Lens Exam

    What to expect during your Contact Lens Exam

    Routine eye exams do not include the evaluation, diagnosis and fitting of contact lenses and a separate fee will apply for all Contact Lens Exams.

    Shamrock is committed to the highest level of contact lens care and service. Following is a list of benefits included with each exam:

    Diagnostic Lens Fitting– Contact lens eye health evaluation, contact lens design and calculations, additional discussion and education, trial contact lenses and all follow-up visits during the trial period
    Vision Guarantee – Any additional contact lens vision related visits within 6 months of the initial comprehensive exam are included (if a medical problem caused the vision change, this will be discussed and a medical charge will apply). Vision changes after 6 months will require a comprehensive exam in addition to the contact lens exam.
    Contact Lens Prescription Guarantee – If your prescription changes for any reason, we will exchange ALL contact lenses purchased from Shamrock for the new prescription (yes, even if the boxes are open). We will also provide free replacements for any damaged or lost contact lenses.

    We work with most Vision insurance plans and the fees vary, depending on the type of Contact Lens Exam. Insurances may offer co-pays or discounts for contact lens exams. Contact lens prescriptions are valid for up to 1 year from the date of your contact lens examination.

    Contact Lens Exam: $80
    Established contact lens wearers not requiring a change in contact lens material/type

    Re-Fit Contact Lens Exam: $125
    Includes the Contact Lens Exam fee, the re-fit into a new material, lens power or type of contact lens and contact lens follow-up visits

    Frequently Asked Questions About Insurance

    Can I use my medical insurance to pay for my comprehensive eye exam?

    Medical insurance will typically pay for medical eye services, assuming you have an associated medical complaint (ie pink eye, dry eye, allergies, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc). Approved medical testing will often require a specialist copay. If vision correction is required and prescribed during the same visit, a refraction copay will likely be required.

    Do you know what eye health and vision issues my insurance will cover? Does my insurance cover vision?

    Your insurance is a legal contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. Because of the number of insurance companies and policies, we cannot be familiar with the eye care limits and exclusions of every plan. It is your responsibility to be familiar with your vision coverage and policy. We are not responsible for any uncovered eye care services performed in this office. If you are concerned about whether or not vision is covered by your policy, it is best to call your insurance company in advance to confirm coverage.

    If I need to file my own insurance for eye care services, what do I have to pay at the time of my visit?

    We require that you pay any co-payments at the time of your visit. When we receive payment from your insurance company, our office will reconcile the account. Once reconciled, Shamrock Family Eye Care will bill you for the remaining amount due or refund any overage.

    What if my insurance reimburses me directly for my medical bills?

    There are insurances where, due to contractual arrangements imposed by your insurance company, we may be unable to receive payment directly from the insurance company. In that event, we will ask you to pay for the eye care services in full, with your insurance reimbursement sent directly to you.

    How many different insurance companies will you file with?

    If you have coverage for the same eye procedure with more than one company, we will file the primary carrier only for direct reimbursement to us. You may file the others for your reimbursement.

    Will you file my coinsurance?

    Any secondary insurance plans not forwarded directly by your insurance company (such as Medicare) are your responsibility.

    Can you get approval from my primary care doctor at the time of my appointment?

    Any prior approvals for eye care services or referrals from other doctors must be received before services are rendered.

    What if my insurance company has not paid and I start getting bills?

    Within three months of filing any insurance, all unpaid balances will become your responsibility. You may then contact your insurance company for reimbursement.
