Lens Maintenance Cost

Many people don't realize that the cost of lens maintenance goes beyond just the cost of the lenses themselves.

Many additional costs add up over time:

  • Lens cleaner solution
  • Case for storing your lenses when you're not wearing them
  • Mouthwash to prevent dry mouth from wearing contacts all day long
  • Contact lens case for when you're traveling so that you don't lose your case or break your lenses.

If you're considering eye lens replacement, you may be concerned about the cost of maintaining your new lenses. Let's take a look at the expense of lens maintenance.

Lens replacement can be expensive, but there are ways to reduce the cost of replacing your lenses. One option is to purchase glasses frames that are more durable and less likely to break or scratch. Another option is to add an insurance plan to protect against wear and tear or loss damage.

On average, it costs $3-5 per year. However, this number varies widely depending on how often you wear your contacts and how much time they spend between uses (the longer they're in solution, the more expensive they are). Your doctor can help you determine an appropriate timeframe for cleaning and storing your contacts between uses so that you don't spend too much on lens maintenance each year.
