Fees

The fee for a complete eye examination depends on the length of time since you were last into our office, if you have been in before, or the services you require. Please contact our office for our current fee schedule. Fees for examinations are payable at the time of service. We are happy to accept cash, Visa, Mastercard or debit.

Please note that there may be a $25 administration fee for missed appointments, or appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
