*EyeMed Contact Lens Wearers*
Standard and premium contact lens fittings
What’s the difference?
“Standard contact lens fit” lenses are clear, soft, spherical, daily-wear contact lenses for single-vision prescriptions.
“Premium contact lens fit” lenses are more complex contact lenses, including but not limited to toric, multifocal/ monovision, post-surgical and gas permeable contact lenses.
The contact lens fit and follow-up billing should generally follow the type of lens you dispense.
You can also bill the following situations as premium fittings:
- Contact fittings started as a toric fit with multiple visits due to astigmatism, in which you ultimately prescribe spherical lenses
- Toric soft lens fittings
- Fitting of spherical lens(es) used in a monovision application
- Prescribing or dispensing an extended-wear lens to a member who intends to wear the contact lens as extended wear
Any other situations outside the definition of premium fittings are considered standard.
