How Much Does LASIK Cost?

When you come to our offices in the Dallas area, we will be able to provide a custom price quote, including a full breakdown of the cost of the LASIK procedure.
Does Insurance Cover LASIK?
Typically, the Answer Is No
For the vast majority of patients, LASIK and PRK are not covered by health insurance. They are considered elective procedures rather than medically necessary. Since vision plans can differ, it's still worth checking with your insurance provider just in case.
There Are Rare Exceptions
Procedures like LASIK and PRK may be covered by insurance in very rare circumstances in which a patient is incapable of wearing glasses or contacts to correct their vision. This could be due to injury, impairment, disability, or congenital condition. If this describes your circumstances, we can discuss coverage during a free consultation.
Factors That Affect the Cost of LASIK
- The amount of patient refractive error
- The location of the practice
- The experience of the LASIK surgeon
- The laser technology used
- The nature of pre- and post-op care
- Special promotions at a practice
The Cost of LASIK vs. Glasses and Contacts
Over two decades, you will likely need to change frames and prescriptions several times. The cost of eye exams, new glasses, and spare glasses can cost thousands of dollars.
In addition to regular eye exams for prescription updates, you'll need new lenses and lots of cleaning solution. The cost of contacts over two decades can be thousands of dollars.
Based on these estimates, LASIK candidates can save hundreds of dollars, if not more, over 20 years if they undergo surgery instead of relying on corrective eyewear.
Can I Use My FSA/HSA to Pay for LASIK?
Yes. If you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you can use it to cover the cost of LASIK. Keep in mind that some restrictions may still apply. The team at Cornea Associates of Texas can help you with these and other payment matters if you are considering LASIK surgery.

Beware of Low-Cost LASIK Deals
You may see special offers from eye centers in North Central Texas advertising LASIK surgery for as little as $250 per eye, sometimes less. This sounds great, but these cheap LASIK deals often come with a lot of fine print. You may be hit with hidden fees based on your vision prescription, and the LASIK doctor may not be reputable. Our team will be honest and upfront about LASIK pricing when you meet with us for a free consultation.

The office and staff were great! I had intraLASIK in both eyes yesterday. It was quick and results were instant! The lady's in the surgery were very calming and friendly. Dr Beebe was also very soothing and comforting during the whole procedure. I am very happy with the results thus far and can't wait to completely recover. I would definitely recommend them!View on Facebook
