PUBLISHED 10/04/13: Eye Exams are one of the auxiliary services offered at Costco. It’s been 5 years since my last exam so I figured it’s time to get them checked again.

An Eyeglass Exam costs $49 and includes an eye health evaluation and a prescription for eyeglasses.

A Contact Lens Exam costs $89 and includes the eye health evaluation and a contact lens prescription.

It’s quite amazing that the price has not changed in 5 years!

My health insurance has increased over 200% in that time and even doctors’ visits now cost me much more but the price of an eye exam is still the same at Costco.
