How much does it cost for a contact lens checkup?

Question

I have been wearing contact lenses for six months now and have been called for an appointment to check them. How much does this cost?

Answer Written answer:
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.

If you are on a scheme and pay by direct debit, your aftercare will be included in your payments. If you have not joined a scheme there will be a charge, but you will have to enquire at the store for the fee.
