The Affordability of LASIK

Some people are under the impression that LASIK is an expensive luxury. However if you compare the cost of LASIK to the cost of the alternatives, specifically glasses or contact lenses, it is clear that LASIK is a very good value and actually saves money in the long run. Here is an average breakdown of eye care over the span of 10 years: Glasses

  • Eye Exam $150 (every 2 years)
  • Frames $450 (every two years)
  • 10 Year TOTAL: $3000

Soft Disposable Lenses and Back-Up Glasses

  • Initial exam with lenses $225
  • Contact Lenses (each year) $200
  • Eye Exam (each year) $150
  • Solutions (each year) $200
  • Frames (every 2 years) $450
  • 10 Year TOTAL: $7975

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses and Back-Up Glasses

  • 10 Year TOTAL: $6450

LASIK may seem expensive in the short-term,but when you calculate how much you are paying for your current eye care over the long run, LASIK is clearly the better value. The cost of LASIK varies for each person and heavily depends on the surgeon and technology they use. As with most things in life, to a large degree you get what you pay for!
