How Much Do Contact Lenses Cost?
At Eye Q Premium Laser, we strive to educate our patients about their vision correction treatment options, so they can make informed decisions about the best course of action for their individual visual needs. Although most suitable candidates for laser eye surgery choose to undergo the procedure for longer-lasting vision correction results, some individuals feel more comfortable with temporary vision correction treatment options such as the use of prescription eyewear. These individuals often inquire about the costs associated with wearing contact lenses. Here, Eye Q Premium Laser shares some preliminary cost information related to the use of contact lenses.
General Costs Associated With Contact Lenses
The final cost of contact lenses varies by patient based on their unique visual needs and vision correction goals, as well as the chosen brand of contact lenses.
Here is some general information about the costs associated with contact lens wear:
- A 30-pack of daily-use disposable contact lenses costs about $30.
- A 90-pack of daily-use disposable contact lenses costs about $65.
- A 6-pack of basic astigmatism-correcting toric lenses costs about $45.
- Premium toric lenses, such as multifocal toric lenses, which correct for astigmatism and allow the patient to see clearly at multiple distances, can cost upward of $100-$150.
- A 6-pack of multifocal lenses costs about $70.
Again, this is simply a general approximation of what contact lenses might cost. The final cost of contact lenses varies greatly, especially if the patient chooses premium-lens options. Also, these prices do not include the ongoing costs associated with contact lens cleaning solution, lubricating eye drops and replacement contact lenses.
Often, the lifetime costs associated with contact lens use or the use of prescription eyeglasses (including the cost of frames) are higher than undergoing laser vision correction surgery for a one-time fee.
