Let’s Talk about LASIK CostFind Out if LASIK is Right for You!
At Skyline LASIK in Colorado Springs, we understand the hassle that contact lenses and glasses can create in everyday life. We also know that people searching for a more permanent solution like LASIK are often interested in figuring out how much LASIK will cost and how to determine the value you’re getting.
What’s Included In The Cost of LASIK?
It’s no secret that vision correction surgeries like LASIK are not “cheap” and it’s easy to get caught up with price shopping or trying to find the “best” deal in the city. The reason prices can vary between practices is a lot simpler than one might think: it all comes down to the value you’re getting. Most of us are familiar with the saying “you get what you pay for” and it is important to keep in mind when shopping for LASIK.
A few things to keep in mind when comparing LASIK prices:
- What is the surgeon’s level of experience and training?
- Is the LASIK technology up-to-date?
- Are the pre-operative and post-operative appointments included in the price?
- Do they offer more than one solution, so you know you’re choosing what works best for you?

Frequently Asked Questions About LASIK Costs
Will my insurance cover LASIK?
LASIK is considered an elective procedure and is not typically covered by insurance. If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), those funds can be leveraged towards LASIK and other vision correction surgeries. Since HSA and FSA accounts are funded pre-tax, you also can enjoy the added savings of using tax-free dollars to save even more.
What are my payment options for LASIK at Skyline LASIK?
At Skyline LASIK, we ardently believe everyone should access superior vision with LASIK, and we’ve integrated convenient payment or financing pathways for our patients. We accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA), and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), which many people find to be a convenient and cost-effective way to pay for LASIK. We also accept most major credit cards and offer a cash discount to patients paying by cash or check. Additionally, we work with Care Credit, a medical lender that provides financing and monthly payment options for qualified patients.
Is LASIK universally priced the same everywhere?
Certainly not, and there’s a rationale behind this disparity. The overall cost should be evaluated in tandem with the surgeon’s expertise, their success trajectory, and the LASIK laser technology employed. Many LASIK centers use discounts to get people in the door but often will only apply that discount with outdated technology or lower prescriptions. Never compromise the health of your eyes and vision by opting for bargain LASIK.
