“But LASIK eye surgery is sooooo expensive!”
We hear that a lot. Cost is one of the top concerns people have when they think about having a laser eye procedure. However, people considering LASIK are already on an “expense treadmill” because they incur the ongoing investment in contacts or glasses.
A conservative, average cost of contacts per year is about $240; though this can vary widely. People with astigmatism or who prefer particular types of contact lenses to others might pay three times that amount. Solution to clean and disinfect your lenses will run another $150 to $200 per year. That totals up to a minimum of nearly $8,000 over a 20-year period. And that’s assuming no inflation.
It’s considerably more than you can expect to pay for laser vision correction.
And laser eye surgery patients enjoy some non-monetary benefits, too. They may be able to lie down to read or watch TV without corrective lenses, and they can buy more fashionable sunglasses, go to bed without removing contacts, and wake up any time of morning and read the alarm clock without squinting. It’s hard to put a price on these luxuries.
Dr. G. Brock Magruder Jr. invites you to come in for a no-cost consultation to determine if you are a LASIK candidate. Then you will finally see what you’ve been missing.
