If I Come in For a Dry Eye Consultation, How Much Will This Cost Me?
After learning more about dry eyes, you might now recognize that you need help getting your dry eye problems under control. Yet, you may be hesitant to schedule a consultation because you don’t know how much it will cost you.
Here are some things you need to know about dry eye therapy costs.
- The first consultation visit is free for you when you mention these posts ($128 value). It will take about 15 minutes and will give us enough information to develop a dry eye plan with you. This is only a consult, not to replace the comprehensive eye exam.
- If you have major medical health insurance, the chances are good that your insurance will help you cover the costs of subsequent visits.
- Medicare and Medicaid cover a percentage of dry eye costs, as well (subject to co-pays and/or deductibles).
- If you don’t have insurance and are paying this yourself, the cost is $87 per dry eye visit.
- Some of your expense in treating dry eye might be tied up in medications. Medication costs are variable and are much more affordable if you have insurance. We will help you understand those costs as we come to know what medication we are going to prescribe. (There are prescriptions cards available in office that may help reduce your costs.)
- Some of our therapies are nutritional therapies. On average, they will cost you about $30 per month.
- Hot compresses may be a one-time expense for you. That cost should be between $20 and $70.
