It is our foremost responsibility as your eye care professional to monitor your ocular health as a contact lens wearer, or a patient who has had lasik performed. In order for us to do this successfully, a corneal topography is required and performed in addition to your yearly eye examination. Unfortunately, your insurance company will not cover this charge.
This examination is an evaluation of your contact lenses and/or the contact lenses you will be fitted for. During this portion of the exam, state of the art technology is used to perform microscopic studies to evaluate the fit and condition of the lenses as well as your cornea, conjunctiva, tear film, and eyelids.
Corneal Topography will be performed yearly on all of our contact lens and lasik patients. The charge is $54.00. This valuable examination measures the shape and health of your cornea for maximum fit and comfort while wearing contact lenses. In order to ensure maximum ocular health, contact lens prescriptions cannot be finalized or released without this evaluation being performed.
*If you are interested, or if the doctor feels that you need to be re-fit into another type of contact lens, then a re-fitting fee will apply. Re-fitting fees vary depending in the complexity of the individual case. Please consult our staff or your attending doctor.
We are proud to offer you the highest level of technology here at Wallingford Eye Care Center. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these mandatory procedures, please feel free to contact the office at (203) 265-5152.
