How Much Does Laser Eye Surgery Cost in Brisbane?

The big laser eye surgery question

One of the big questions on the forefront of everyone’s minds is ‘how much does laser eye surgery cost?’

The first thing to note is that there isn’t a set cost.  There are many different types of laser eye surgeries and the price can vary a lot.

In Australia, the average cost of laser eye surgery can range anywhere from $2600 to $3700 per eye.

Whatever your budget is, you should ensure you have it done by a practice that’s straightforward. They should be transparent about how their pricing works.

We’re not the cheapest, and we’re okay with that!

Does Private health insurance cover laser eye surgery?

Most insurance programs, including Medicare, use the term “medical necessity” to determine coverage. If a medical procedure preserves health, health insurers consider it a medical necessity. Thus, they approve of it.

Routine surgeries to preserve vision rarely fall under these protections. Unfortunately, that means that people who want laser eye surgery may not be able to use their Medicare benefits to do so.

Is laser eye surgery worth the money?

Laser vision correction may seem like an expensive option to correct refractive errors. However, most patients will pay much less for LASIK over a lifetime than what they would spend on their glasses or contact lenses.

When compared to glasses and contact lenses, you can get your payback on LASIK after about 10 years. So if you plan to wear glasses or contact lenses over the next 10 years, then you’ll likely pay the same as you’d pay for a quality LASIK procedure.

Consider the cost of refilling prescriptions, lens fitting, lens solution, and buying new glasses. Consider the amount of time you can waste fiddling with glasses and contact lenses.

If you’re going to pay for it anyway, they might as well get the vision you want without needing to wear glasses and contact lenses.
