When searching for medical-related services, "lowest price" isn't at the top of my list. Competence of the practitioner and quality of service are.

Look at the junk mail coupon packets and the junk mail coupon magazine.

Also, if part of a medical plan, you may get special rates at affiliated eye care providers.
Special rates may be better than their regular charges.

Have you tried calling and asking local optometrists? The contact lens exam isn't very expensive. My doctor (gone to him for the past 10 or so years)has his office adjacent to a WalMart which makes filling prescriptions that much easier and gives you someplace to wander while the eye drop dilation is happening. And his prices are under $70ish without insurance and that includes the dilation, contact prescription and glasses prescription, and a trial pair + saline kit.

Lowest price can be relative to quality. You can check Costco or Sam's Club.

Thanks every one for the replies.

I went with Americas Best Contacts and Eyeglasses 3 years - 3 exams for $99

Costco has to lowest price
$75 for Contact lens ...

when I lived in Southern California a long while back --- there was a eye doctor that advertised in the LA Times TV Guide for $15 eye exams --- he would rent like 5 tempoary locations around LA and show up with his machine and cases of contacts

I would pay him the $15 and he would run me through a five minute exam --- and I would buy the contacts for super cheap from him --- if you wanted a perscription, he would quickly scrible it out --- and off you go --- worked ok when I was college age

now I have a regular eye doctor with expensive machines and a vision plan at work

Costco also has the bare minimum of equipment in their offices, too.
