Clearer vision is just one of the many benefits our Houston-area patients enjoy after LASIK vision correction surgery. Decreasing or even eliminating their dependence on glasses and contacts is also more convenient, reduces long-term costs, and makes it easier to enjoy many of the activities they love. Still, we understand that the cost of LASIK is a concern.

When you begin to research LASIK, you’ll see a wide range of prices out there. Don’t be fooled by the bargain offers! Your vision and the health of your eyes are too important to be entrusted to the lowest bidder. It’s important to consider factors like the surgeon’s experience and training, the laser technology used, and how comfortable you feel with the practice. You only have one set of eyes, so make sure you have complete trust in your surgeon and their team!

What Goes Into The Cost of LASIK?

Many practices have a wide range of LASIK prices and advertise low costs based on using inferior technology. At Diagnostic Eye Center, you’ll find that we use the most advanced laser technology for every patient, because we strongly believe everyone should have the best possible results. All of our laser refractive procedures are all-laser and include wavefront optimized technology to provide more customized vision.

Our Modern LASIK pricing includes all preoperative and postoperative care. Our surgeons, Dr. Marc Sanders , Dr. Andrew Salem, and Dr. Andres Parra will be accessible to you throughout the entire process. Some practices have a surgeon that just comes in every once in a while to do surgeries, but you won’t find that to be the case at Diagnostic Eye Center. We want to ensure that you’re completely satisfied, every step of the way.

Does Insurance Cover LASIK?

LASIK is not considered to be medically necessary, which means that insurance companies view it as an elective procedure not eligible for coverage. Fortunately, we offer convenient financing options to help our patients fit the cost of LASIK into their budgets.

Is LASIK Financing Available?

Diagnostic Eye Center believes that financial considerations should not be an obstacle to achieving freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Our goal is to make LASIK affordable for any budget, which is why we offer financing options for our patients through Alphaeon Credit. Alphaeon has many interest-free options available with no down payment. A simple online application can be completed in our office with a valid ID.

Our staff will discuss all of your financing options at the time of your consultation and will assist you with the simple application process.

Can I Afford LASIK?

Of course, you have a budget. Even with LASIK financing, the cost of laser vision correction would need to fit into that budget. But have you considered what you spend on vision correction right now? Most people spend up to $6,000 on glasses and contacts over the course of ten years. By that time, you would have already finished paying for LASIK, and that amount doesn’t even account for the inconveniences of regular vision exams, keeping up with your supply of contacts, repairing damaged glasses, or the general hassle of depending on eyewear. Really, can you afford not to have LASIK?

The cost of LASIK over two years is less than the cost of:

One cup of coffee per day
Dinner out for two, every week
One monthly phone bill
