LASIK Eye Surgery Cost Houston
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well actually not as Sugarland Eye & Laser Center, one of the leading LASIK or laser eye surgery centers in Houston is have a 1 day LASIK event on January 16, 2015. During this one-day only event they’ll be offering the LASIK procedure for as low as $995.
If you are thinking of having the LASIK procedure, this is an exceptional savings since the cost of the procedure is usually twice or three times that amount. We all know that before we buy anything, we Google it and compare the price. The problem is that the price of products and services vary per site. When it comes to LASIK, a survey of leading US refractive surgeons was conducted last year to help determine the average cost of LASIK. According to the survey, the average overall cost of the procedure is $2,073 per eye. The cost of surgery per eye at centers for LASIK, PRK, LASEK, etc. is $2,223. This means that this is the average cost of the surgery regardless of the technology that is used. For microkeratome, the use of a bladed instrument, and excimer laser, the average cost per eye is $1,543. Using femtosecond laser-created flap, the average cost per eye is $2,177.
LASIK is Cheaper
If you are using eyeglasses or contacts, here’s a good comparison to show you how much you can save by having the procedure. The average cost for a pair of eyeglasses is $196. That is cheaper than LASIK, but those who wear glasses usually have more than one pair. Moreover, they usually buy a pair every two years. Similarly, compared to contact lenses, the average cost of a pair per year is $240. Considering that the effects of LASIK treatment lasts for up to 20 years, the procedure is cheaper than eyeglasses and contact lenses. If you’re wearing both glasses and contacts, you’ll save even more.
