Full Answer

Most eye exams check the eye muscles, perception of color, and the peripheral vision. These exams run from $50 to $114, notes CostHelper. Determining what prescription a patient needs, called a refraction test, may be an additional charge. An eye pressure test may also be needed. This too is a separate charge. If glasses or contacts are needed, the prescription is good for up to a year.
