Understanding LASIK Cost
Laser vision correction is usually classified as an elective procedure and is not covered by most insurance plans. When considering LASIK surgery, patients should strive to understand all of the factors that determine the full cost of the procedure.
While many patients may be tempted to choose the practice that offers the least expensive treatment options, it is important to remember just how delicate vision is, and to place its care in good hands. The cost of surgery should be a secondary concern compared to the surgeon’s skill, safety record, and history of success, as well as the technology and cleanliness of the facility.
The cost of LASIK varies dramatically from person to person, and from practice to practice. During your search for the perfect LASIK surgeon, you may stumble upon many practices offering extremely low LASIK prices. Use caution, because many of these LASIK “deals” are a bait-and-switch technique. It is rare that an experienced LASIK surgeon would charge those prices for their services. Be sure to read the fine print and do your research.
Be sure to ask your LASIK provider what is included in the cost of your LASIK surgery. You could be paying anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 per eye depending on where you go, so you want to be 100 percent clear on what you are receiving for that money!
