The reason we all want LASIK refractive surgery is that it gives us freedom from glasses and contact lenses. We have a younger, fresher appearance without glasses and no longer have to deal with the hassle or caring for contact lenses. You may have held off on LASIK due to the LASIK eye surgery cost. However, the cost of LASIK may be more affordable than you think.
How Much Does LASIK Eye Surgery Cost?
Lasik eye surgery costs can save you money on your current eyeglass and contact lens expenses. If you wear contacts, the typical patient spends $500-$700 per year on contact lenses. Throw in an additional $150 for solution, cases and eye drops plus your pair of back up eyeglasses and the cost adds up.
Prescription eyeglasses costs vary wildly with the average being about $300 per pair or higher if you want a designer frame. Typically, a patient will change their frame every 2 years.
