Buying contact lenses? Purchase terms and conditions:
Because contact lenses are customized for each person, we’ve established some guidelines for obtaining them from BayCare Clinic Eye Specialists.
How often must my lenses and eyes be evaluated?
People who wear contact lenses should have a contact lens evaluation every year. They also should have a complete eye exam every year or every two years as recommended by their doctor. People who use extended wear and disposable contact lenses should be evaluated more frequently.
Will I be charged for follow-up visits?
People who are fitted with contact lenses and who have paid a fitting fee will get free follow-up visits throughout the 45-day warranty period.
People who order replacement contact lenses will get one free follow-up visit to check the new contact lenses. Any evaluation or other office visit beyond the original fitting date will be billed.
What is the billing policy?
Contact lenses and evaluations must be paid in full at the time of service. Most insurance companies don’t cover these expenses. Insurance information will be collected on the day of your evaluation. Exams, office visits and contact lenses can be billed to insurance upon request.
The cost of the contact lens evaluation, contact lenses and contact lens follow-up visits are separate charges from the medical eye exam with your doctor.
Are refunds available?
People who are fitted for contact lenses are charged a fitting fee and a material fee. If you are not satisfied with your contact lenses, we will refund the material fee within 45 days. There are no refunds on professional fees or replacement contact lenses.
Can I take my prescription elsewhere?
If contact lenses have been fitted by our optical staff, and you have returned to be checked to verify the lens fit, the contact lens prescription can be released to you or to a licensed practitioner responsible for follow-up care. That prescription is valid for one year from the final lens fitting.

Buying glasses? Our purchase terms and conditions:
If your prescription changes within six months of ordering your eyeglasses from our optical department, the lenses will be updated to your new prescription at no additional charge to you.
Upon ordering your glasses, a deposit of 50% of the estimated amount you will owe (after insurance if you have insurance coverage) is required. The balance is due when you pick up your new glasses.
New Progressive (no-line) Lens Wearers
If you are newly fit with progressive lenses, it may take some time to adjust to the new type of lens. You have up to 60 days from date of order to wear your new progressive lenses. If you are not comfortable with the progressive lens, we will refit you into a single vision, bifocal or trifocal design lens at no additional charge; there will be NO refund for any price difference.
Previously Worn Frame
Placing new lenses in your current or old frame will be done at your risk. We use great care in the fabrication process, but breakage can occur. BayCare Clinic Eye Specialists is NOT responsible for breakage of your current or old frames.
In the event you are unhappy with your frame style selection, we offer a one time, 30-day exchange for the frame style and we will place the lenses in the new frame free of charge. You will be charged for any increased cost of the new frame and NO refund will be issued for other price differences.
Eyeglass frames and lenses covered under breakage or scratch warranty*, include a one-time replacement for the warrantied product that is valid up to one-year from date of purchase. This is not an unlimited replacement policy. The lenses will be replaced with the original prescription and lens type.
Any eyeglass purchases* may be returned within 60 days from the date of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price. *Frame must be in like new condition to be accepted for refund. No refunds will be issued after 60 days.
