Do contact prices vary depending on prescriptions?

I’m on a military base in the middle of nowhere & there is only one store nearby where I can purchase contacts. Today I noticed their pricing states 6-mo supply for $75, but when I rang up it was $150. I asked about that and they told me because I have a different prescription strengths in my right eye vs my left eye, it is $75 per eye. The clerk told me if it was the same in both eyes, it would be just $75 total. This makes no sense to me. Is this typical? Can someone explain that logic to me?

Is there elsewhere online I can purchase contacts? I use Acuvue Oasys
