How much does laser vision correction cost?

Every patient’s needs are different, and no two laser vision correction surgeries are alike. As a result, the price of the procedure varies. Factors that can influence the cost of laser vision correction include:

  • The type of procedure that is performed
  • The technology used during the procedure
  • The experience of the surgeon

Does insurance cover laser vision correction surgery?

Laser vision correction is considered an elective surgery that is not generally covered by insurance plans. However, that does not mean that treatment cannot be affordable. There are several options available for financing. Some popular financing options include:

Flexible Spending Accounts

(FSAs) are offered by many employers to help cover the costs of medical expenses, including laser vision correction. FSAs may allow you to set aside a predetermined amount of money from your paycheck. This money, which is not taxed, is then available to cover the cost of many medical procedures.

Medical loan or credit card

There are many companies that offer financing for elective medical procedures such as laser vision correction. We work directly with CareCredit to help our patients secure affordable financing for vision-enhancing procedures. If you’ve been putting off having an ophthalmic procedure due to budget constraints, CareCredit® can help. Click here or call our office for details.

With these financing options and others, the cost of laser vision correction surgery can fit comfortably within most patients’ budgets.

What are the benefits of laser vision correction?

Laser vision correction surgery may seem like a significant expense initially. However, it is important to consider the long-term benefits that treatment can provide. The most obvious benefit is vision correction and the ability to see the world around you using your own eyes. 

Laser vision correction surgery can free patients from the long-term financial obligations associated with eyeglasses and contact lenses. Imagine no longer needing to pay for contact solutions, eyeglass repair, or new lenses that come with prescription upgrades. Over time, these expenses cost more than laser vision correction surgery.

To see how the value of laser vision correction compares to the cumulative cost of contact lenses, glasses, and other eye-related expenses, use our Refractive Surgery Calculator.
