Costs that are involved in an eye exam are a fee for the exam to be performed and the type of exam, notes All About Vision. The cost of an eye exam varies based on location, type of provider, if the exam includes a contact fitting or additional eye tests.
At a medical clinic or a private eye doctor’s office, eye exams can cost up to $100 as of 2015, says All About Vision. Vision insurance plans usually cover a portion of eye exams. However, insurance only covers health care providers who accept that specific insurance. Individuals should check with the doctor’s office before scheduling an appointment.
