Cost is often the biggest concern of our patients. We understand that you want to be sure the procedure is affordable. The good news is that LASIK can be very affordable. In reality, you are paying for it every time you would have needed buy new contacts or glasses.
We are pleased to be able to provide financing options that will help you afford it. Through the use of our financing partner, CareCredit, we can offer $0 down and 0% interest with 24 month financing, making LASIK affordable for almost everyone.
Another way to save on vision correction is through a Flex Spending Account or your HSA. If your company offers these accounts, give us a call to find out how to use pre-tax dollars to pay for your procedure.
