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 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.
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.
Changing Lives Through Laser Eye Surgery Reviews From Past LASIK Patients
LASIK survey with Dr. Alexander has been the best experience! Cornea Associates came highly recommended and I understood why, right from the beginning. They were incredibly thorough getting everything exact leading up to the eye surgery. LASIK itself was quick and fairly easy. I never got the chance to get nervous during the procedure because a nurse, in the room, was whispering to me every step of the way. Keeping me informed and suggesting things to help. It was incredibly comforting. I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander and the professionals at Cornea Associates of Texas!View on Google
From the beginning of my consultation to after my surgery, I have had a wonderful experience with Cornea Associates of Texas and Dr. Bowman. I wish I had done the surgery sooner! It is truly life-changing to be able to see without my contacts or glasses. I am a nervous person and struggle with anxiety. Dr. Bowman and his team made me feel at ease right away. Even during the procedure, I was never in pain or felt very much fear. It was quick and painless. I am so thankful I made the decision to get the surgery. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Bowman.View on Google
