Why are LASIK fees so different from center to center?

One of the first questions people ask when inquiring about laser vision correction is cost. After a person makes a few calls, they suddenly realize that LASIK fees are all over the place – $499 per eye up to $2300 per eye. Why the difference?

Questions you should ask when doing your research:

  1. Is the center using the latest technology available? (Blade-free LASIK)
  2. Does the fee include the pre-op evaluation and all post-op visits?
  3. How long is the post-op period?
  4. Are there additional charges for a greater degree of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism? (This is called a tiered pricing structure.)
  5. What is the enhancement policy?

Our goal at the Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado is to make things simple for our patients. One fee for Blade-free LASIK using the Ziemer Femtosecond laser to create the flap, and the Wavelight Allegretto laser platform to perform the treatment. Our fee includes the pre-op evaluation and all post-op visits. No surprises, no hidden costs, no upcharge based on prescription.
