BJ’s Eye Exam Cost Explained

BJ’s Wholesale Club previously partnered with U.S. Vision to provide eye exams and eye services in-store. But, BJ’s is not currently offering eye exams at most of its store locations as it transitions to run BJ’s Optical internally, BJ’s customer service representatives said.

We contacted BJ’s locations in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia to find out if any clubs are still offering eye exams through U.S. Vision. About 90% of the locations we contacted said they are not currently offering eye exams. However, a BJ’s in New York said it’s still offering eye exams for about $50 for a glasses exam and about $100 for a contact lens exam. A contact lens fitting — considered an add-on to the exam — costs about $50. You must be a BJ’s member to schedule an appointment.

Keep in mind, a BJ’s representative said that where eye exams are available, vision insurance is accepted, but you’ll want to verify with your vision insurance provider that BJ’s is in-network. Also, be aware that you may be required to pay a co-pay and/or additional fees in-store.

Contact your nearest BJ’s Wholesale Club to find out if it currently offers eye exams.

Note: At the time of this writing, BJ’s representatives could not give further information on when BJ’s internal optical services are expected to become available.

In Summary

Most BJ’s Wholesale Clubs aren’t currently offering eye exams and eye services. Where available, glasses exams cost about $50 and contact lens exams cost about $100. BJ’s accepts vision insurance, but you’ll want to contact your insurance provider to find out if BJ’s is in-network and what co-pays and fees you are responsible for.
