LASIK Eye Surgery Financing
Voted Best of Berks—
eight years in a row!
LASIK is short for Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis, a popular refractive eye surgery that corrects vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is both safe and effective, and can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. Our Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania patients experience improved visual clarity and freedom from eyeglasses. One of the questions we are asked most often is “Do you offer LASIK eye surgery financing?” We do! Let’s explore.
What is LASIK?
During LASIK surgery, a highly precise laser is used to reshape the cornea so that light entering the eye can be properly focused onto the retina. The procedure involves creation of a thin flap in the cornea, folding it back, and reshaping the underlying corneal tissue to correct vision. After reshaping the cornea, the flap is carefully repositioned, eliminating the need for stitches.
Cost is certainly one of the main considerations for individuals interested in LASIK surgery. Financing is available so that you can pay for the procedure over time, making it more affordable and accessible. Breaking the cost down into manageable monthly payments helps individuals who may not have the full amount up front. This way, more patients can experience the amazing benefits of LASIK surgery.
LASIK eye surgery financing typically involves partnering with a financial institution; we partner with a reputable credit union that can provide loans or credit options specifically tailored for medical procedures, including LASIK surgery. Patients can apply for financing directly through the eye center or clinic, and the application process is typically straightforward and streamlined. We have more information on our website, and you can apply directly right here.
Terms and conditions like interest rates, repayment periods and down payment requirements can vary based upon your individual financial situation. Some financing plans offer zero-percent interest for a specific period, while others may have low-interest rates that are more favorable than using a credit card or personal loan. Patients should carefully review and compare the terms of different financing options before making a decision. To qualify for the financing, patients typically need to meet certain criteria, including a minimum credit score and a stable source of income.
This financing is a financial commitment on your part, so patients should carefully consider this option as well as all options. In summary, financing can provide a flexible payment option and that translates into more patients like yourself being able to take advantage of LASIK.
Many patients are surprised to find that LASIK is more affordable than they realized, and our LASIK eye surgery financing options may make it easier. We also accept some insurance discounts, so be sure to ask about those. Visit our website for more information on financing.
