Maryland Eye Institute has carefully selected the brands of contact lenses that we offer to our patients. The health of your eyes is our primary concern so we use quality lenses supplied from selected group of manufacturers. We are able to offer competitive pricing to our patients since we have an established working relationship with the suppliers. Maryland Eye I nstitute will send the contacts to you if you prefer to have them shipped directly to you at no additional cost if you order a year supply of disposable contacts. You have the option to come and pick them up from the office also. An initial fitting is necessary for the proper dispensing of all the contact lenses. We encourage all of our contact lens patients to have an annual eye examination after your initial fitting.

Included with the initial contact lens exam:
  • A contact lens examination includes a refraction (eyeglass prescription).
  • All measurements to ensure that the lenses properly fit the corneas of your eyes.
  • Trial lenses to determine proper vision, fit, and comfort.
  • Instructions on how to insert a care for your contact lenses.
  • New contact lens users will receive a starter lens solution kit.
Contact Lens Agreement:
  • Full payment for the fitting fee is required before trial lenses will be given if in stock.
  • Completion of the fitting is required before a lens supply is ordered.
  • We will do everything possible to fit your contact lenses. If you are unable to adapt to the lenses or decide not to wear contact lenses, fitting fee in non-refundable. However, a refund of the materials fee will be processed for non-specialty lenses returned in 30 days (unmarked and unopened boxes only). There is no refund on expired lenses.
  • A contact lens prescription cannot be given unless an exam has been completed.

MINOR PATIENTS: The parent/guardian/adult must accompany a minor or the child cannot be seen. The parent/guardian/adult accompanying a minor child is responsible for payment. Any child 18 or over is legally an adult and responsible for his/her bill, regardless of attending college, living at home, or being covered by parents insurance. If both parents have insurance, the parent with the first birthday in the year is most often the primary insurer. Please check your insurance policy to determine which company is primary before your appointment. In divorce cases, the parent who brings the child in for services is ultimately the responsible party.
