How much does it cost to get LASIK?

Dr Matthew Russell talks about the costs of LASIK laser eye surgery

When it comes to the costs of LASIK, the most important thing to do before anything is to find out if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. In order to do that, you need to book an appointment for a free laser vision assessment.

At that assessment, you’ll get all the information you need regarding costs, and it’s important to realize that our clinic has no extra costs, or hidden costs when it comes to the laser. That means that the cost of laser covers all your followup visits, and it also covers the cost of all the medications, and drops for use after the treatment is done.

If you would like to learn more about laser vision correction and understand which treatment is going to be most appropriate for you, to free you from glasses and contact lenses, then please go to our website and book online for a free laser vision assessment.
