People of ages 21 to 55 are good candidates for laser cosmetic eye surgery (LASIK/PRK). Younger people have eyes that are still undergoing development and people older than 55 may have developed more serious eye diseases. Do not hesitate to ask your physician how many times he has performed the same procedure, and ask everything from benefits to potential risks. Remember that what is at stake here is not just how good your eyes look but also how well they will function later on. Laser cosmetic eye surgery has a lot to offer.
The cost of LASIK differs widely from one provider to another and depends on many factors. The only universal standard is that LASIK and other refractive surgery prices are quoted per eye (as we do in this article).
A report commissioned by AllAboutVision.com from a leading industry analyst was based on results of a survey of refractive surgeons conducted during the first quarter of 2009. Average LASIK costs were:
* $2,140 for all laser-based vision correction procedures (including LASIK) in which a single price is quoted.
* $1,748 for non-customized PRK a procedure requires no laser-created flap and excimer lasers that are not guided by wavefront analysis.
* $2,314 for wavefront-guided LASIK using a laser-created flap.
At Pan Pacific Laser Vision Center, financials should not be the reason not to have laser vision correction today, since our average cost is just $1,750.00 per eye, and we offer financing such as: in-house payment plan, or monthly payments for up to 18 months interest free through CareCredit or Chase.
Note that there can be wide variation in what an advertised price will include. Beware of advertising that, for example, promises “LASIK from $499 per eye.” Look for the fine print. Typically, only a few select people are actually eligible for LASIK at prices that sound unusually low, because most eyes require more extensive correction technology or more follow-up after the surgery. At Pan Pacific Laser, our price includes all of the pre-operative evaluations and post-procedure follow-up exams up to one year. Our price also includes a free lifetime enhancement policy.
In previous years, you might have been able to find a few eye surgeons willing to charge less than $1,000 per eye for LASIK and other procedures. But the newest 2009 AllAboutVision.com report indicates that most eye surgeons have backed off entirely from charging prices that low.
