Why Does a Contact Exam Cost more than an Eyeglass Exam?

Contact prescriptions require additional measurements above and beyond the traditional eyeglass lens exam measurements. Often eye care providers include follow-visits and contact lens refitting in the cost of a contact lens exam. Toric and gas permeable contacts are the most difficult lenses to fit and require more re-checks than a standard contact prescription, so exams for these types of contacts are frequently a few dollars more than a standard contact lens exam.
