How the cost of contact lenses compares to the cost of vision correction?
When it comes to vision correction, there are many options out there. For people who want an alternative to glasses and contact lenses, LASIK is a popular choice. But how do it compare in terms of cost? Let’s take a look.
LASIK may seem like an expensive option to correct your eyesight. However, over a lifetime most patients will pay much less for laser eye surgery than what they would spend on glasses or contact lenses!
We estimate the average cost of buying contact lenses over a year is $480. If you’ve been wearing them for 10 years or more, you could have already paid for laser eye surgery.
If you think about how much it costs to get your prescriptions refilled, lenses fitted, lens solution and buying new glasses, you realise that you’ll save money when you stop renting your vision and start owning it.
