The cost benefits of having LASIK versus not having LASIK

Hi, it’s Dr. Chotiner from Memorial Eye Institute. In this video, I’ll answer the question that everyone wants to know: “What are the cost benefits of having LASIK versus not having LASIK?”.

At the initial assessment, you’ll get all the information you need regarding costs. It’s important to realize that our clinic has no extra or hidden costs regarding LASIK or any other type of laser eye surgery we offer.

That means that the LASIK cost covers everything, including the assessment with me before the procedure, everything to do with the operation itself, all your follow-up visits, the cost of all the medications, and drops for use after you’ve had your treatment.

When it comes to LASIK costs in Harrisburg, we’re not the cheapest because we spare no expense when it comes to ensuring our patient’s safety and we offer the latest technology available in the market.

And, because we offer flexible financing options where you can spread your LASIK cost as far out as 2 years, we can make it affordable to most people who are serious about selecting a top-quality LASIK surgeon.

Cost of Contact Lenses Vs Cost of LASIK

We estimate the average cost of buying contact lenses over a year is $480, and the estimated cost over 20 years is $9000. In comparison to a one-off lifetime fee of $5300 for LASIK, it’s clear which option is better value.
