SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey all, I went to see an optometrist for an eye exam. I went to Lenscrafters wearing contacts that I had from my last 6 months supply. I went in to get a new 6 month supply. So, anyways, I was wondering do you guys do retinal imaging on all patients even if you are like me who is in his mid 30s with no medical history? Anyways, I was never told I had to pay out of pocket for this. I got a partial refund after I told the optometrist I was never told I was going to be charged. So I got my eye exam and found out I was charged a contact fitting fee of 54 dollars. I was never fitted for any NEW contacts. After the eye exam, I think the optometrist made sure the contacts which I came into the store fitted me and not newly purchased contacts (which I thought should have been the case). I got my bill from the eye insurance company and there was the charge of contact fitting and followup. Today, I just picked up my contacts and was never "followed up" as to whether these newly purchased contacts "fit" me. So I was upset as to how can I be charged a contact fitting fee on old contacts I went into the store with and not newly purchased contacts. Yes I understand that there is a contact fitting fee. I just dont understand how you can charge me on my old pair of contacts. Can someone clarify this for me?
