What Does
LASIK Cost?

When price shopping for LASIK it is very important to go to a LASIK center that can get great results for a good price. If one practice has a 20 year old laser with old technology that’s going to have a different impact on outcome than a modern bladeless laser machine with a brand new excimer laser. The experience of the LASIK surgeon is also something that varies. There are many LASIK surgeons in the bay area that have performed thousands of LASIK eye surgery procedures at Dr. Jay Bansal at Laser Vue Eye Center is one of them.

Choosing a LASIK surgeon that will get you the best outcome is the most important factor but price can also play a role in your decision.

The History of LASIK Pricing

LASIK prices have become hard to compare due to corporate entities that emerged in the field of LASIK during the late 1990's. LASIK’s success rate and popularity attracted numerous chains offering discount pricing. Aggressive advertising campaigns followed that often promised a low price simply to lure the patient in the door. After arriving at the FREE LASIK consultation most patients quickly realized that the advertised price would not work for them because their vision was outside the parameters. Very few patients paid the low initial advertised price. Indeed, according to a recent Business Journal report, the national operations director of a well-known discount center stated that their average customer paid close to $1800 per eye, even though the advertised price was only $299. Several of these chains ended up bankrupt, after paying fines to the SCO for fraudulent advertising.

Choose Your LASIK Surgeon Carefully

Discount LASIK

There are many reasons to avoid a surgeon advertising $499 per eye. The most compelling reason is that this is almost always a bait and switch tactic to get you in the door. At LaserVue Eye Center, we give you the true price up front because we respect you, your time, and your choices. Your patient experience is important to us, and that’s where we want to focus.

Unknown Surgeons

If you can’t find much information about a surgeon online, be very wary. You should be able to find medical education, history, patient testimonials, and more. A laser eye center should never try to hide its surgeons. Unfortunately, these facilities often offer discount surgeries in an attempt to boost their surgery volume at the expense of putting the patient first.

Doubts

If you have doubts or reservations about getting LASIK performed by a particular surgeon, don’t do it! LASIK is a surgery like any other and you should never settle for anything but the best. LASIK is an investment to be considered thoroughly and handled with care. Your health and safety are the primary concern—never leave them in inexperienced hands.
