The Cost of Lasik

Almost all patients who consider whether to do Lasik surgery or not end up thinking about the cost of procedure and often their decision is impacted by their ability to pay the amount needed for surgery. We share the belief that you should receive the best result without overpaying. You can find other centers that will offer a cheaper treatment than Boothe Eye Care but none of them uses bladeless, advanced technologies as in our center. In addition, you should check carefully what is included in the cost of Lasik. This is the typical list of things that need to be included in the total price of a Lasik surgery:

- Cost of the initial eye examination;
- Cost of pre-op procedures & consultations;
- Cost of anesthetic drops used before and after surgery;
- Cost of the surgeon’s time, staff and the facility (operation day);
- Cost of materials in the recovery kit following surgery. Cost of follow-up visits;
- Cost of additional procedures (if needed) to improve your initial result;

When you visit any ophthalmology center that advertises teaser costs for Lasik procedures (starting at $299 per eye…) you may check well the small print. Usually if your prescription is higher than 1-1.5, costs will be double or even four times the original teaser price. Anything from the list above that is not included in the price will add up to the actual total price you will pay, sooner or later.

Some patients are not ideal candidates for a traditional Lasik procedure. They may require additional treatments and more expensive procedures and this needs to be taken into account when you are quoted with a price.

At Boothe Eye Care, we want to provide our patients with the most comfortable treatment in a calm, respectful environment. It is best if you don’t feel worried during the treatment and so we try to be transparent about our fees. Most unpleasant situations happen when a patient receives an extra charge he/she did not expect. We avoid such cases by providing each patient with full information about his/her treatment prior to surgery. Our counselors take their time to talk to you individually and explain all the details of your Lasik surgery. Dr. Boothe’s door is always open for you. Your Lasik surgery will be performed by one of the country’s most professional surgeons. We offer affordable prices for Lasik surgery and reasonable payment plans.
