Even with insurance, traditional vision correction can be expensive, and spending your time and money on eye exams, glasses and contacts can be frustrating. But, contrary to popular belief, LASIK is actually more cost-effective over time, saving you time and money.
Cost of LASIK vs. Glasses and Contacts
The industry average for LASIK surgery is about $5,000 or less. Buying contact solution and cases alone will cost you $5,400 in your lifetime. For traditional vision correction equipment, like contacts or glasses, you could spend anywhere from $12,000 – $36,000. Without LASIK, you could be spending nearly $60,000 on traditional vision correction, compared to the average $5,000 LASIK surgery cost.
Paying the total amount of LASIK at once can be enough to deter people from getting the procedure. However, here at 20/20 Institute, we offer multiple flexible payment options.
Cash, Cashier’s Check or Charge
You can pay for the procedure with cash or any major credit or debit card.
Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Most HSA and FSA accounts allow patients to use them for LASIK procedures, but it is important to check with your provider before your procedure.
We strive to make LASIK affordable for everyone, which is why we offer financing options for our patients through CareCredit and GreenSky.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card available to our Lifetime Plan patients at no interest if paid in full in 24 Months, and to our One Year Plan patients at no interest, if paid in full in 12 Months. The primary benefit of CareCredit is that when your procedure is paid off, you can still use your CareCredit card for other medical expenditures such as dental, and veterinary bills.
GreenSky is a medical term loan. We offer GreenSky to our Lifetime Plan patients at no interest if paid in full in 24 Months, and to our One Year Plan patients at no interest, if paid in full in 12 Months. When your GreenSky account is paid off, the account is closed.
We also offer a Lifetime Plan for our patients. Our Lifetime Plan offers the ability for a refinement or enhancement procedure at no further cost until you get cataracts. Our Lifetime Plan comes with no strings attached – you don’t have to have annual eye exams or check ups to keep it valid.
