How Much does Laser Eye Surgery Cost?
The cost of LASIK varies widely, and for good reason. Before bargain hunting for the cheapest LASIK price you can find, consider how important your eyes and good vision are to you, and make sure you understand what you’re choosing. Make sure you understand why the cost for laser corrective eye surgery differs from doctor to doctor. Below are a few things that affect corrective laser eye surgery costs:
The price quoted by different LASIK doctors often varies because of the technology that’s used both for pre-operative evaluations and the operative procedure itself. Newer technology brings an added level of safety and precision, but also some additional cost. The latest LASIK procedures not only utilize custom Wavefront technology, but the most advanced blade-free lasers. Currently, the most advanced technology in LASIK eye surgery is commonly referred to as Da Vinci Z-LASIK and is exclusively offered in New Mexico by Dr. Bernitsky.
A LASIK surgeon’s experience is another factor that plays into the cost of corrective laser eye surgery. A surgeon who has significant experience in laser eye surgery and provides both pre-operative evaluations and post-operative care to patients is likely going to cost more money than a less experienced doctor, or one who provides less service.
Different levels of service are also a key component of LASIK pricing. Often times, large corporate LASIK companies will advertise a low price for LASIK, but the cost only includes the cost of the surgery and not the cost of pre and post-operative care. It is important to find an Albuquerque LASIK doctor who performs thorough eye evaluations to determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK and provides the aftercare you need after undergoing LASIK eye surgery.

How to Make Sure you’re Getting a Fair Price for LASIK Eye Surgery
To make sure you are getting a fair price for your LASIK eye surgery, be sure to ask the doctor what is included in the price you are quoted and what is not included in the price. For example, find out if medications and follow-up visits are included in the price, and whether you will be expected to pay if you were to need an enhancement at some point in the future.
