Average Cost of LASIK Surgery
When considering LASIK eye surgery, it will be necessary for you to make two very important and personal decisions: a medical decision and a financial decision. How do you choose a LASIK surgeon who can deliver the safety, care and results you expect and need for your vision and make a financial expenditure that is appropriate for you and your family? When researching laser eye surgery, it can be difficult to find the right match for you, so it is important to evaluate all aspects of your laser eye surgery. Many patients begin their search by looking at the average cost of LASIK surgery, but even something that seems as simple as a price, can be misleading and difficult to find.
What is the average cost of LASIK surgery in the United States?
In the United States, the national average cost of LASIK surgery can range from $1,500 to $4,5001 per eye, so how do you know how much your LASIK will cost, and why do you see ads promoting “LASIK for $299”?
The first step in evaluating a practice for your laser eye surgery is to make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. Patients should thoroughly evaluate multiple surgeons before selecting the one who will perform their surgery. It’s ok to be picky. After all, we are talking about surgery on your eyes.
Patients should also compare LASIK price quotes to avoid hidden fees or “starting at” prices. The chance of you paying $299 for LASIK surgery is very slim, because the price increases if you have a higher prescription, astigmatism, opt-in for post-operative care plans or enhancement plans, etc.
