LASIK eye surgery can not only greatly improve the quality of your life, but can also save you money in the long run. The costs of prescriptions, office visits, and glasses or contacts can really add up. The initial investment in LASIK is not only a smart long-term decision, but is actually very affordable. If you are weighing the cost of LASIK and are in the San Francisco, Sacramento, or Corte Madera area, Ellis Eye & Laser Medical Center can offer you a procedure and payment plan that is suitable for you. Here are just a few tips to help make your LASIK surgery more affordable:
Finance the Cost Many people opt for monthly finance programs instead of upfront payments to cover the cost of LASIK surgery. Different plans are available that can spread out payments for several months to several years. Ultimately, it is up to you to find a timetable that works, but the staff at Ellis Eye can help find a plan that suits your financial needs.
Consider a Flexible Spending Account Even if your insurance does not cover LASIK eye surgery, flexible spending accounts (FSAs) are a good way to pay for procedures like LASIK. FSAs use pre-tax income which is helpful in trimming costs for medical expenses that your insurance doesn’t cover.
Find the Right Facility The details behind LASIK eye surgery are best explained by an experienced eye surgeon. Things like whether or not an eye center rents or owns its own equipment or whether or not post-operative care is available long-term can affect the price of LASIK. Not only is Ellis Eye experienced with the most cutting-edge LASIK technology, but we also have our own equipment on-sight.
