A patient came in yesterday and gave my staff a long talk on how his soft contacts were so much cheaper at Costco. He was quite loud and was so emphatic I thought I better check into this because we work hard to make sure that our prices are very competitive at Waverley Eye Care. So I called Costco and asked what their price is:
Oasys for Astigmatism:
- Costco: 6 month supply: $178.00 – $20 mail in rebate = $158.00
1 year supply: $356.00 – $50 mail in rebate = $306.00
- Waverley Eye Care: 6 month supply: $180.00 -$20 mail in rebate = $160.00
1 year supply: $340.00 – $50 mail in rebate = $290.00
Obviously our prices are extremely competitive, and this is not even taking into consideration things like us providing free replacement of ripped or torn lenses and including contact lens checks with an eye doctor at no charge. What is also obvious is that we need to educate our patients’ better on what a good value we can offer them, we will try harder.
