Don’t Be Fooled by Discount LASIK Providers
You may have run across ads for the best LASIK deals for the cheapest LASIK services.
Some national chains advertise the procedure for as little as a few hundred dollars per eye. This may seem like a smart way to save on laser eye surgery costs, but there are usually extra fees that aren’t mentioned in the ads.
These LASIK centers advertise a low base cost for the procedure alone. What they don’t say in the ads is that their advertised offer covers the LASIK surgery pricing. They charge extra fees for appointments and follow-up care. You may find yourself paying for the following on top of the base cost:
- Higher procedure fees if you have a higher vision correction prescription or eye conditions like astigmatism or dry eye
- Pre- and post-op appointment fees
- Additional fees for more advanced technology options
- Extra fees for a customized treatment plan
- Prescription eye drops expenses to prevent post-operative infection
- Facility use fees
- Financing fees
When you calculate these additional LASIK surgery costs, you may end up with a bill that’s comparable to getting care at a highly regarded LASIK clinic. Unlike the care you would get at West Texas Eye Associates, discount LASIK centers often have outdated, low-cost LASIK technology and don’t offer a full range of vision correction options.
At West Texas Eye Associates, we don’t surprise you with hidden fees. All of our services are included in the cost of your procedure. We also offer multiple vision correction options, including LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and refractive lens exchange (RLE).

Covering the LASIK Eye Surgery Cost
LASIK is usually considered an elective procedure so health insurance doesn’t cover it. However, it’s always worth checking your insurance plan details to see if they might help pay for the procedure. There may be some circumstances where expenses for vision correction surgery can be covered.
Some employers offer flexible spending accounts that allow employees to set aside pre-tax money to be used for qualified medical expenses. LASIK is a qualified expense, so an FSA is a way to save for the procedure.
At West Texas Eye Associates, we partner with Care Credit to offer financing for LASIK surgery and other vision correction procedures. Our care counselors can share the details of LASIK financing plans to help you pay for the cost of care.
