LASIK Cost

While safe and effective, many people have concerns about the price of LASIK surgery.

Cornea Associates of Texas can answer any questions you may have about the cost of LASIK.

Learn why people come to our offices in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Plano, TX, for vision correction.

How Much Does LASIK Cost?

The cost of LASIK eye surgery can vary based on several factors. Since each vision correction procedure is tailored to the patient's needs, the price range is different for each guest who visits us.

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 laser technology used
  • The nature of pre- and post-op care
  • Special promotions at a practice

The Cost of LASIK vs. Glasses and Contacts

When weighing LASIK surgery costs, many people calculate how much they could save compared to a lifetime of wearing glasses or contacts. The team at our Dallas, TX, laser surgery center offers the following general breakdown.

Prescription Glasses

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.

Contact Lenses

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.

LASIK Financing Options Wells Fargo Health Advantage

Making Eye Surgery More Affordable

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 is beautiful and I didn’t have to wait long. All the staff is attentive and caring. I am incredibly impressed with Dr. Zaffros! He is the fifth doctor I’ve seen regarding my eye problem and the first to be able to provide a diagnosis and treatment. Such a relief! This place is top notch.

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!
