How much do you pay for an eye exam and do you just take them to a regular eye doctor or to a pediatric one?

Saturday I took Jay in for an exam with the same lady who did my husbands exam a few weeks ago but he wasn't cooperating real well with her (he got shy) and she wasn't able to really do it properly so she referred us to a pediatric eye doctor. Made the appt with them and when I got there she couldn't give me a price estimate not knowing exactly what the doctor would do and we used our vision benefits for the year up so I had to pay OOP - she said that cash patients get a 50% discount. When we left my bill was $366 and when I mentioned the discount she said, "oh that's after the discount". OMG!!! The bill was $733?!!! I about fainted!!! Jay's had many eye exams, including ones done by anotherpediatric eye doctor and my highest bill (without insurance) was $150, that included glasses! This does not!!!

Is it just me or is that cost a bit extreme??

And to think I'm looking at another at least $100 in glasses... eesh!

Wow...that does seem like alot!!!!

Vanessa wears glasses and we just went last week. We do to a pediatric doc. We have eye coverage but it's not that great. We still had to pay $93 and that doesn't include a new pair of glasses. (she's outgrowing the ones she has now.)

Paying over $300 sounds crazy if that was still a discount. Maybe they can get away with that for adults but really, a child?

Arianna just had hers checked again. I believe her eye exam was 79.99 and they had a special on frames for back to school.
