Educating people with hemianopia about the Peli Lens is the focus of this website, even though eye care professionals may present other options for consideration that may be beneficial.  See the Learning Center.

 

We are presenting the costs of these systems for the sole purpose of allowing the consumer to compare the relative costs of each of the treatment options. These cost estimates will vary widely by geographic area, medical facility, office pricing structures and other factors.

 

The cost of materials for fitting the temporary prisms should range from $80 to $150 and a minimum of 2 office visits; estimated total cost from $200 to $400 for a grand total of from $280 to $520.  A pair of permanent prism glasses range from $600 to $1500 depending on lens type and the Peli prism power. The frame would be extra.  This concept offers 20 or 30 degrees of field expansion depending on the prescribed prism power.

        (Compared to the Peli Lens)

In the 1980’s when these lenses were introduced they sold for about $1500  plus  $500 to $800 for training. Twenty years have passed and costs have increased.  Recently we have heard prices of $4000 but we are not sure if that includes training to scan or if that price is just for the lenses.  It would be advisable to discuss the costs with the eye care provider who is recommending them.  Again, the frame would be extra.

 

These systems are typically prescribed to offer from 5 to 10 degrees of field enhancement.
