The cost of LASIK can make even the most comfortable middle-class adult think twice. On average, LASIK costs about $5,000. The good news is that with financing, savings, tax-free health accounts, discounts and negotiated insurance rates, most people can afford quality LASIK without resorting to low-end LASIK providers.
Some discount chains may be less expensive than $1000 per eye, but this typically means they are using outdated technology and employing some version of bait and switch marketing with hidden costs. They may even say that their advertised price is only for certain prescriptions and your eyes do not qualify.
Cities across the continent have their shares of bait-‘n-switchers. Beware of discount LASIK advertised at $299/eye, $499/eye or even $999/eye. These prices don’t represent the cost most people pay for safe, quality LASIK.
At Atlantic Eye Institute, the price of your surgery will include all the costs associated with your procedure for the first year. This means the surgery, eye drops, all post-op appointments, and possible enhancements are covered. In addition, your price does not change based on how weak or strong your glasses prescription is. We also offer affordable financing options through Care Credit with up to 24 months of no interest.
We believe that the key to producing the best LASIK result is to combine the best technology available with a skilled surgeon. Atlantic Eye Institute was the first in Florida and the eleventh in the United States to employ the Allegretto Wave Eye-Q 400. This truly state-of-the-art excimer laser technology means safer and faster vision correction with superior results.
While window shopping, remember that LASIK is surgery and the quality of your surgery is reflected by the price you pay. When in doubt, just remember that old saying, “you get what you pay for.”
