Vision Correction sounds expensive

Laser vision correction does seem like an expensive option to correct vision over the short term. Still, most patients will find that they pay much less for laser vision correction over the long to medium term than what they would do for their glasses or contact lenses throughout their lifetime.

One easy way to assess this is to go to the pricing and financing page of our website. This will give you some indication of how much you’re likely to pay for glasses or contact lenses over your lifetime. After you consider the cost of refilling prescriptions, lens fitting, lens solution, the cost of glasses, and the amount of time you can waste fiddling with glasses and contact lenses, you’ll be excited to stop renting your vision and start owning it.

Typically, a LASIK patient spends a fraction of what they might spend on glasses and contact lenses over a lifetime, which for many can exceed tens of thousands of dollars. However, when it comes to cost, the reality is that you’re spending the money anyway, so you might as well have the benefits of laser eye surgery to go with it.

The best way to find out if lens surgery is right for you is to have an in-person assessment. You’ll get a clear answer from our experts on your suitability and vision correction options


In addition, for those people that don’t have the full laser eye surgery cost to hand, it is possible in most cases to spread the payment of laser treatment out over the course of 1 – 2 years – interest-free. But before even considering cost, the most important thing you need to know is whether you’re a candidate for one of the procedures we offer.
