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?

Now we can’t speak for every LASIK center in Colorado Springs, but we can share how we do things and what you can expect from Skyline LASIK. When it comes to our price, we are not the highest in town and we’re certainly not the lowest. At Skyline LASIK you won’t find “cheap” LASIK or any other refractive surgery we offer because we’ve spared no cost when it comes to providing the latest state-of-the-art vision correction solution combined with unparalleled individualized care for our patients.

Why Patients Say That LASIK Pays For Itself

Why rent when you can buy?

Viewing LASIK as simply an added expense is only seeing part of the picture. When making any purchase, it is important to consider the value you are adding to your life. Consider the analogy of purchasing a home. Buying a home may be more expensive than renting in the short term, but eventually house payments end and you own property forever. When you rent, however, you are just spending money to live in a home without the long-term benefit of ownership.

In a similar vein, those grappling with poor vision are consistently spending money to address this issue via contact lenses, prescription glasses, bifocals, reading glasses, progressives or some combination of the above. Those expenses last a lifetime, since vision doesn’t improve by itself. You might look at this as “renting” your vision.

With LASIK, you are truly paying for visual freedom. LASIK represents a one-time investment in your vision, rather than an endless cycle of paying for glasses, contacts, and all the related costs that go with them. Even if you finance your LASIK, those payments eventually end. If you consider paying for vision aids “renting” your vision, LASIK is the long-term solution that gives you ownership.

With inflation, corrective eyewear like glasses and contact lenses demand continually higher costs for the temporary benefit of improved vision. LASIK reverses this equation, offering a one-time investment for a lasting solution.

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.
