Exam Follow-Up Timelines
Certain types of exams require one or more follow-up appointments. In certain cases (such as contact lens fittings), these follow-ups are provided at no charge as long as they are completed within a certain time of the original appointment date. Specifically:
- Contact lens follow-ups are to be completed within 3 months (90 days) of the comprehensive exam or contact lens fitting.
- Contact lens training must be completed within 30 days of the first training session.
- Prescription re-checks will be performed one time at no charge within 90 days of the original exam.
Beyond these time periods, additional office visit fees may be charged, or we may be unable to finalize the prescription without re-starting (and charging for) the entire comprehensive eye exam again.
In many cases, a prescription (i.e. for contact lenses) cannot be issued until all follow-up appoinments are completed.
