Many people consider LASIK eye surgery for vision correction, but one of the patient’s main question is always, “How much is LASIK eye surgery? Our professionals at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania can help you answer this important question.
Cost Depends on Several Factors
The price of LASIK can depend on several factors including the amount of vision correction you need and the type of laser eye surgery you have. We prefer a technique called bladeless LASIK, and indeed, the majority of people we see are candidates for this state-of-the-art procedure. Our goal is to provide each patient with the treatment option best suited for their vision.
Costs can vary, but according to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the average cost of LASIK eye surgery in the United States is around $2,000 to $3,000 per eye. We provide all-inclusive pricing in a customized treatment plan, and will not surprise you with hidden fees or other charges. The initial LASIK examination is free of charge, regardless of whether you are a candidate for the procedure or regardless of whether you proceed with the surgery.
Some insurance plans do cover LASIK and some provide discounts. LASIK is deemed an elective surgery and not an essential procedure, so insurance companies are unlikely to cover its full cost.
We do have financing options available and can discuss those at your initial consultation. There are several plans to fit different budgets, and the application for financing is quick and easy. In fact, part of our initial consultation involves meeting with our LASIK coordinator and financial specialist who can help you with this process. You may also qualify for a military or other discount as well.
Many of our patients pay for the procedure on a credit card to earn points, and many also opt to use their flexible spending accounts (FSA) or health savings accounts (HSA) for payment. We can also help you learn more about this option. Using FSA or HAS is actually a great way to pay for LASIK eye surgery, and you save money because these are pre-tax dollars. Many patients have used money in their FSA and HSA accounts to pay for most if not all of the procedure. Again, our financial specialist can answer any questions you may have and can help you apply for these benefits.
